When driving out of Paramaribo town we like to have lunch at a Javanese warung. Actually there are not too many of these. On the route south along the Afobaka road there are a couple of them west of the crossing with Meursweg at Paranam. And the last one when one is headed south is Warung Lé-Kasan facing the Paranam aluminium refinery of Suralco.
Tourist buses on their way to or coming back from the south make a stop here, and we presume that Suralco employees patronize the warung too, because they offer special menu's on working days.
The service is friendly. When we complained having waited too long for our order, the apology was that the kitchen staff just had lunch themselves, amd we received a free dawet drink.
The warung seems to be owned and run by Stinasu, Suriname's foundation for nature conservation. Right behind it are some protected wetlands, a short trail leads along its border. Bird spotters may take some time off for walking the trail, but we think they should come early in the day.
Hours: Monday through Thursday: 7 am to 5 pm. Friday through Sunday: 7 am to 8 pm.
Favorite Dish: Saoto soup with egg SRD 12.50, telo (cassava dish) SRD 12.50, various rolls SRD 5.00. Unfortunately they do not have Suriname's delicious natural fruit juices, like kers, pommerak, markoesa, pommecythere. You have to make do with water or artificial juices.
