Suriname Local Customs: 20 reviews and 18 photos
At most fairs that take place in my hometown Brielle (Netherlands), we have the Surinamese snack stand right in front of our house. No coincidence! We provide him with electricty, water and toilet and we get free food!
I call him Mister Roti.
Roti being an Indian dish consisting of a kind of pancake, with which you eat meat (chicken, lamb or beef), potato and vegs all spicy and hot!
It's always a feast when he comes, my Mister Roti. A beautiful big black man with his lovely wife who doesn't look a day older than 40 but has grown children and many grandchildren.
I usually help clear up when he finishes selling late at night and then we drink coffee and tea together.
Indian people (or Hindustani as the Surinamese call them), have a big impact on Surinamese cuisine.
