A new business venture em­powered by five women. These five ladies officially opened its doors to the public on Thursday after a $2000 donation from Suva PPSEAWA president, Litia Rawiriwiri.

The restaurant called Peace Kitchen is located at Hotel 2000, Lautoka.

They are members of the Pan Pa­cific and Southeast Asia Women’s Association (PPSEAWA) which was founded in 1928. The name of the restaurant was inspired by the organisation’s motto.

“The reason we call it Peace Kitchen is because it is the motto of PPSEAWA, which is peace and understanding, we will provide good music and good food for peo­ple to enjoy.

“This will be a place where work­ers can relax and on top of that our price for food is $6 which is afford­able and consists of home-cooked meals.”

She said the traditional home-cooked meals were mostly sold out.

“So far the favourites here are rourou and lamb chops, fish and in between we have baseisei and kokoda like an appetizer,” she said.

“We try to promote healthy eating because we do not want to have a lot of oil, it’s basically boiled food.”

The restaurant is open from 7am to 8pm from Monday to Saturday.

Lautoka PSSEAWA member and widow, Ake Richmond said she joined PPSEAWA because she was encouraged by the motto which was ‘enriching women’.

She has been involved with the group since 2013.
