Tanzania Cuisine

Tanzanian cuisine is a delicious mix of typical Eastern African dishes and unique additions from centuries of Colonial and International trade. Typical dishes such as maize porridge are common along with spicy foods and Asian flavours such as coconut milk and chapati.

Pilau is very common though reserved for special occasions and weekend meals, while things such as Tanzanian barbecues Рknown as Nyama Choma Рsee families and friends gathered to grill goat, chicken and fish, and serve it all up with with grilled bananas and Ugali Рthe country’s most common maize dish. Stew such as Nzizi Nyama (green banana stewed with meats and pots of vegetables) and Supu ya Ndizi (Plantain soup) are also very popular and a must try for those with an adventurous taste for culinary treats.

If you find yourself eating with your hands, as is traditional for certain situations – remember to never eat with the left hand.
