BIEM'S KITCHEN has been active in Amsterdam since August 2018 in the Market 33 Urban foodcourt on the Zuidas. The start of our authentic Surinamese kitchen has its origins in Zaandam. The secret of BIEM'S KITCHEN is the welcoming, atmospheric and authentic preparation of our dishes. Quality and taste experience are at the heart of BIEM'S! Everything is prepared with fresh herbs, ingredients and the finishing touch by a cook who has enormous passion for the Surinamese - Creole cuisine.
The name BIEM originated as a nickname among my childhood friends in Suriname where I was born. As a lover of Surinamese cuisine with its melting pot of delicacies from different cultures I have always been curious about how the dishes are prepared with their combinations of typical traditional spices. Through my grandfather who has been working as a cook in Suriname in the Creole kitchen, it has developed so typically from home.
Because of the colonial past, ten different population groups live in Suriname. All with their own history, customs, traditions and of course their dishes. If there is a people on earth where everything revolves around food and sociability, then the Surinamese are. Creating this experience is also one of the most important motives of BIEM'S Kitchen.
Over the years I have therefore experimented a lot in the Netherlands, especially as a part-time hobby cook, to put together the perfect dishes and deliver catering services from home. I think it is very important to taste the authentic taste of the dishes as intended. Besides the spiceful food, I would also like to let you, as a guest, enjoy the smaller snacks, delicous sandwiches with different toppings and typical Creole meals for the ultimate taste experience.
At BIEM’S Kitchen you always taste the flavors of an authentic Surinamese Creole cuisine.
Biem's secret? The typical Surinamese hospitality and its original preparation of the dishes. BIEM's Kitchen is now known for its Saoto soup and Pom Chicken, but be sure to try the spiceful curry massala chicken with roti or the classic surinamese noodles with roasted chicken.
