Angelino Sophia was raised by his grandmother in one of the Amsterdam high rise appartment buildings that were hit by airline crash in 1992. My gran saw the plane approach and knew right away something was wrong. We had to run for our lives. Thanks to her I am here to tell the tale.

Preparing traditional Antillian dishes is my life and joy. I have over 30 years of cooking experience. I look upon it as a form of art that my grandmother has transferred unto me ever since I was little. Our traditional way of cooking is a long kept secret, but I would like to share the culinary highlights of the Antilles with the world, Angelino says. Angelino’s is a traditional restaurant. This is not something you would come across every day. Perhaps if you would have friends from the Antilles, then you would.” As far as Angelino is concerned everybody will come to enjoy his grandmother’s dishes in the Amsterdam World of Food, the food halls Angelino hopes will be the home to his future restaurant. “In my kitchen only the true and traditional products from the Caribbean are used. We hope to bes erving Antillian snacks like pastries, pika ball, johnny cake and Antillian meat rolls.

At the moment I do meals for Antillian parties and celebrations. My tropical dishes and friendly service have become the stock and trade in the Antillian community. By cooking for people and socializing with them, I show love them.

The authentic Antillian cuisine Angelino considers a novelty in the Amsterdam culinary world. The Surinam kitchen has made some name for itself, but the Antillian cuisine also has plenty to offer the Dutch know hardly anything about.”

Risks and challenges

Angelino works hard at setting up his own restaurant and becoming an entrepreneur. If there is anyone who has shown how to persevere and overcome setbacks, it’s the South East Amsterdam King of Antillian Pastries!
