Tanzania
In addition to the European fare served at popular resorts and lodges, many different regional specialties are on offer. Mainland traditional dishes include nyama choma (barbecued meat), kachumbari (spicy tomato relish), mishkaki (beef kebabs), meat stew, potatoes, and ugali (a type of maize meal porridge). Indian curries are widely available due to the large population of second-generation immigrants from India. The coastal areas offer excellent seafood and Swahili-style curries like mchuzi wa kamba (prawn curry with tomatoes), all delicately flavored with locally grown spices and coconut milk. Tropical fruit is abundant throughout Tanzania. Take your pick from sweet coconuts, pawpaws, pineapples, bananas, and mangoes. Head to Dar Es Salaam for a more cosmopolitan choice of restaurants including Ethiopian, Moroccan, Thai, and Chinese. Arusha also offers international cuisine due to the large expatriate community residing there. Try the locally produced Safari lager or have a tipple of Konyagi, a gin-style spirit.
