Chef Quincy brings authentic Creole-Surinamese food to Pannekoekstraat

Few cuisines are as extensive, varied, and as fragrant as the Creole-Surinamese cuisine. As of 24 February Rotterdam can taste the rich meals as Chef Quincy will open an authentic restaurant on the Pannekoekstraat in Rotterdam.

Quincy Uiterloo, better known as Chef Quincy, will offer typical dishes like peanut soup and cassava soup, satay, masoesa moksi alesi with smoked chicken and salted meat or Nasi with roasted chicken for example. In his restaurant young people with difficult backgrounds can gain experience for a better future.

He explains: ”I want to give young people with a social disadvantage and/or an unpleasant past a chance to build a future by giving them a job or an internship. You don’t grow alone, you grow together.”

Quincy rediscovered his love for cooking as a youth worker. When he was young he was impressed by his aunt. She would always provide lots of food during parties. When he provided cooking sessions in institutions. It got him thinking, he wanted to start his own eaterie.

The centrally located restaurant has eighteen seats in a modern setting. It’s also possible to pick up meals. He offers the authentic flavours of the land of his ancestral parents. He developed his own sambal and marinades. At the same time, his cooking is very accessible.

Chef Quincy is open from 24 February. Every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11 AM to 9 PM. On Sunday the opening hours are 12 – 9 PM.

The official opening is on February 26. A substantial part of the turnover that day will go to a youth care institution.
