Representative of the many Surinam snack bars found throughout the city, Kam Yin offers this South American country's unique fusion of Caribbean, Chinese, and Indonesian cuisines that arose from its history as a Dutch colony. Perhaps the most popular meal is the roti, a flat-bread pancake, which comes with lightly curried potatoes and vegetable or meat additions. If you come for lunch, try a broodje pom, a sandwich filled with a remarkably addictive mélange of chicken and cassava root (mmmmm, root vegetable). Basic, clean, convivial, and noisy, Kam Yin shows extra sensitivity with its speedy service, long hours (daily noon–midnight), and a doggy-bag option.
