Zimbabwe is known for a lot of things, but diverse, adventurous and delicious cuisine is not one of them. The food in this southern African nation is similar to that in the countries that border it. Meals are hearty and ingredients are inexpensive. The breakfast staple is mealie meal—loose cornmeal porridge typically flavored with peanut butter or canned jam. Wealthier families may add butter, milk or sugar to sweeten this otherwise plain dish.

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.
