Guyana Restaurant Week starts Friday, Nov. 20, 2020 and extends through Sunday, Nov. 29, 2020. Before the influence of the British and Dutch colonialism, the Indigenous people to the country as guiana, meaning ‘land of water.’ It’s the perfect name for the country located right off of South America’s northern Atlantic coast.
The people of Guyana are a diverse bunch and their cuisine is sure to embody the fullness of their heritage. Restaurant week seeks to show off the wonders of Guyanese cuisine and it comes smack dab before the holiday season kicks off. Sponsored by the Tourism and Hospitality Association of Guyana (THAG), local restaurants will provide special Restaurant Week menus, giving old patrons and new guests, alike, the opportunity to sample their best.
There’s nothing like good food to put you in the holiday spirit and even the pandemic is not stopping Guyana Restaurant Week. Restaurants like Terra Mare, have their dine-in instructions (regarding Covid-19) listed on their menu. Other restaurants will provide take-out, delivery and outdoor dining options, which can be seen on the Guyana Restaurant Week website.
