Eating in Zimbabwe
By Viator, November 2013
Corn meal serves as the base for lunch and dinner, too, however the porridge is thickened so that it can be picked up and eaten by hand. Sadza, as locals refer to it, is frequently served with spinach, spring greens or collard greens, and better-off families may add stewed or dried meats to the dish at dinner. Local restaurants offer traditional foods, but because they also cater to foreign travelers, meals usually reserved for celebration, like rice, chicken and local coleslaw salad are served, too.
High tea on the veranda of the 100-year-old Victoria Falls Hotel is a luxurious way to spend an afternoon and experience British influence on the country’s cuisine. Boma, a popular prefix dinner spot, serves up traditional fare with a side of local dance and music, too.
