surinamese food

All you Queens food fans should go over to Sorrento's Bakery on Jamaica Avenue in Richmond Hill for a Surinamese lunch. No not Guyanese food, much of which can be found on Merrick Avenue in Jamaica, but Surimanese food, a combination of Indonesian, Dutch, African, Amerindian and even Jewish foods. The woman who runs it with her teenage children bought the Italian bakery and still offers decent Italian pastries. But the real star is the steamtable in the rear, filled with incredible curries, etc. Try the pumpkin. Try everything. It's pretty amazing. And maybe you'll spend $4.
