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.
During the winter season when the soup bar is open, The Caribbean Housewife’s 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’, ‘Mac ‘n Cheese’, and ‘Chili sin Carne’.
Give your loved one, family, colleague, or neighbour the perfect gift: a delicious and healthy meal served with a warm smile from The Caribbean Housewife. You can buy it at the soup bar or order a gift card online. You can either pick up the gift card at our shop, or let us know in the “order notes” if you want the card to be sent (additional postage costs will be added).
