Ram’s Roti is a family restaurant, founded by Sanjai Jairam’s father in 1985. Now he is the captain, as he calls it. You will find his brothers and nephews in the kitchen. But that is not the only family element here. “Our roti is a family recipe,” Jairam says. “Of course the base recipe for roti is the same everywhere, but every family has its own way of making the masala, the yellow curry.” The way the Jairams make it is unmatched, according to their customers. It is by far the most popular dish, but not the only one. Surinamese specialties like bakkeljauw and Saoto soup are accompanied by Hindu dishes like pholouri and dahl. “
