<b> COOKING </b>
Our cuisine is a mixture of Indigenous, African, Asian and Western cooking. All of these have their specialties and specific flavors. Some of our dishes may be familiar, while others may be new.

Have you ever tried dishes like:
-* pom - a local root baked to a delicious dish with chicken and orange juice

-* peanut soup with tom-tom (plantain noodles)

-* saoto - chicken soup with beansprouts, thinly sliced cole and celery, fried shoestring potatoes and a boiled egg

-* her'heri which is boiled plantains, cassava, sweet potatoes and other edible tubers, together with smoked or salted fish prepared with a hot pepper sauce

-* roti - a flat pancake like bread filled with chicken, stewed potatoes and vegetables

-* petjil - cooked vegetables with peanut sauce

-* dawet - a drink made of coconut milk and lemongrass

-* samosas - deep-fried patties

-* sweets like jilebi, rasgulla and barfi

-* kwak - a cereal made from cassava

You can also eat meat and fish from the barbacot - the Indigenous bbq - various Indonesian and East Indian dishes, Peking and Cantonese specialties, American steaks, a French dinner or Caribbean style Creole dishes - you can easily have a different dish every meal of your stay.

We also have fresh fruit: mangos, papayas, soursop, oranges, jackfruit, west indian cherries, carambolas, passion fruit, lychee-like rambutans, pineapples, watermelons and then some more.
