Few cuisines are as versatile and colourful as the Surinamese. Thanks to the influences of the many ethnic groups that compose this country, Paramaribo’s culinary tradition is a real melting pot, sometimes literally. Creole, Hindi, Javanese, Portuguese-Jewish, Dutch ... what do you feel like eating?
Roti shops, small local cafés (warungs), casual diners... there are many outstanding eateries across the city where you can enjoy a variety of Surinamese cuisines. The Creole cafés along the Waterkant are a popular destination – the perfect spot for a sunset dinner with a view of the Suriname River. A little further from the city centre is the Javanese district Blauwgrond for an unforgettable Surinamese-Indonesian culinary experience. The famous Indian rotis can be sampled on almost every street corner in Paramaribo!
