PIKYANGA, ABOUT RETAINING THE ISLANDS FLAIR & TASTE
IT FIRST STARTED OUT HERE...IN GUADELOUPE
It was love at first sigh. A buzzing and tingling sensation that started out on the skin and spred to all the other senses, making your chest drum
Guadeloupe is a 6-island archipelago, as diverse as it can get. From classy Saint-Francois in Grande-Terre to rustic Sainte-Rose in Basse-Terre, and authentic back-in-time Marie-Galante... the array of experiences as a foodie, nature-lover, history buff, thrill-seeker, family person is so wide that you can never get enough. What strikes the most within the 1st 24hours is the combination of scents and spices in the air; the musicality present in the vibrant nature life (especially at night), the creole (native language), the songs, and oh God, the colors and patterns lavishly applied to the landscape, people, food, crafts.
This beauty, ingenuity, creativity has also transferred on the people and their talent. And this is exactly what you get with this store. A piece of the archipelago and each island through the talents, artisans and people that make it, directly at your doorstep, with international delivery
Pikyanga is named after a terroir vegetable with a funny shape, often used in local hindou-inspired dishes like Colombo. Traditionnally used by our knowledgeble grand-parents, it somehow, in the mist of consumerism fell out of use, only to be reclaimed lately by its population, gaining cultural empowerment. So voilà! Pikyanga is the all in one delicatessen, art and craft, gourmet shack bridging the gap between tradition, modern and creative for the locally Made in. Because talent, and what to bring as a souvenir from our islands go way beyond the Rhum-only tag. So we'll be your partner in crime in your sweet tooth moment, when you want to try out a deliciously easy island specialty with our blend of spices, your deco eyes when you want to give your interior an island edge, and even your concierge when you're on the watch for forget-me-not gifts whether for family, friend, or business partners. Going that extramile to give you an enhanced taste of the island is what drives us.
