Food & Dining in French Guiana


Owing to the diverse ethnic mixture of the population, French Guiana offers a good selection of dishes including American, Chinese, Creole, European, Indian and Indonesian.

Indonesian dishes are recommended, usually rijsttafel with rice (boiled or fried) and a number of spicy meat and vegetable side dishes, nasi goreng (Indonesian fried rice) and bami goreng (Indonesian fried noodles). The most popular places where you would find such food is in 'warung's' Lelydorp on your way from the airport to Cayenne, or Blauwgrond in the city, and since recently, near the bridge in Commewijne.

Creole dishes include pom (ground tayer roots and poultry), pastei (chicken pie with various vegetables) and peanut soup. Indian dishes, such as roti (dough pancake) served with curried chicken and potatoes, and Chinese dishes, such as chow-mein and chop suey, are excellent. Moksi meti (various meats served on rice) is a local favourite.

Local drinks include the Indonesian Dawet (a coconut drink), Gemberbier (Creole ginger drink) and Pilsener Parbo Bier. There are some restaurants in Niew-Nickerie and Cayenne, but they tend to be scarce outside the capital.
