For true Suriname flavours, you do not have to travel far: Roopram Roti has been serving up this rich cuisine’s authentic tastes since 2002. “For all these years, we have never changed our recipe – and thereby found the recipe for our success,” says head of staff and organisation Sanjay Shiamrai. The story of restaurant Roopram Roti starts in Suriname. Wanting to meet the growing demand for roti in the Netherlands, which had fallen increasingly in love with the dish, Mr J. Roopram came up with the idea to export frozen roti. Unfortunately, regulations prevented any chicken parts to be exported from Suriname. In 2002, Roopram came with the ultimate solution: he opened his very own Roopram Roti restaurant in Rotterdam.
