Our menu is inspired by traditional recipes from tropical places in the West Indies region and South American region, such as Cuba, the Netherlands Antilles, Jamaica, Surinam, Trinidad and Tobago.
Caribbean soup is a hearty affair. Caribbean soup dishes are often rich and seasoned with fresh herbs like thyme. There is no thin broth and soup is not served as a first course to a meal. Instead, it is the meal, the main dish.
The Caribbean Housewife menu changes weekly. All soups are vegan and made with mostly organic or biodynamic produce.
Examples are the ‘Surinaamse Dame’, a creamy Surinamese peanut soup with plantain, ‘Take me to Trinidad & Tobago’, a cassava corn chowder, or the ‘Caribbean Queen’ a zesty carrot ginger soup with cashew nuts. Next to unique soups we make vegetarian and vegan dishes, such as delicious salads, pão de quejio, empanadas, plantain, and desserts.
For those who want healthy home-made meals like our ‘Husmors Lasagne’ and ‘Chili sin Carne’.
