If you're looking to try authentic local food in Harare, PaGokoro (meaning 'meeting place') is where you'll want to go. The idea for the restaurant came out of the desire for a place for the owner, Judith, to meet with her friends that wasn't as crowded as other restaurants in the area. After saving for some time and what felt like an impossible search for just the right venue, she came upon this house in the Highlands neighborhood in 2011. Dining is casual here - dishes like sadza and beef bones in vegetables are eaten with your hands. You can sit a table or in the cozy 'cushion room', where beanbag chairs surround a lower table.
