About the Owners
We come from Guyana, a country where many cultures have historically co-operated to form a uniquely Guyanese culture. Growing up in Guyana, cooking was something we learned naturally. We raised our own chickens and shopped at our local markets for fresh fruits and vegetables.
In Guyana we say our cuisine is a mix of seven influences: Amerindian, Chinese, Indian, Portuguese, African, Dutch, and British. When different peoples came to live in Guyana, they brought their own culinary traditions, which adapted and survived for centuries on the new continent. The influence of the Africans can still be seen in many of our meat dishes and vegetable stews such as callaloo, whereas many of the national breads and curries were first brought over by Indian labourers working on Guyana's fields.
Since arriving in Canada In 2000, Roxy has been employed in the food industry, and in 2015 Ray & Roxyfinally resolved to establish our own Caribbean restaurant. We pride ourselves in authenticity - everything we serve is cooked exactly as it would be eaten in our own home. In cooking for you, we hope to share a piece of the many cultures of Guyana with the people of Canada.
We are almost always present in-store, so if you have any questions about the food, please feel free to ask -- we would be happy to tell you about the ingredients and preparation of our dishes.
