Places to visit in Suriname and on our combined Suriname tours
Why visit Suriname?
As you may have guessed, the food in Surinamese is as rich and diverse as the country’s ethnic makeup. One must taste local dish is the gumbo and cassava soup. You may also want to try the Saoto. A dish that originated in Indonesia but has been given a typical Surinamese touch and is served in every warung (Indonesian restaurant) in Suriname. Soato is spicy, and, if you want to, you can add, the sambal (very hot pepper); but this is only for those who dare!
