Tanzania Foods

Tanzania bucket list probably has the icons like the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Mount Kilimanjaro and the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar. But what about the food in Tanzania? It’s all about big flavours and hearty comfort food here, with amazing spices, heart-warming stews and perfectly barbecued meat. We dive into the delicious world of Tanzanian cuisine, including the best dishes to try, and some tips to stay well on your trip to Tanzania. Ugali is undoubtedly the most common foods in Tanzania and you’ll find it served with almost every meal. Made from boiled cornmeal paste, this doughy porridge-like dish is the best thing to mop up sauces and dip into soups and curries.

Despite the name, this classic Zanzibar dish doesn’t have much in common with traditional Italian pizza. It’s just as tasty though and you’ll find it sold by street vendors all over Zanzibar. The locals make it with a thin sheet of dough filled with meat, onions, peppers, raw egg and sometimes mayonnaise and cheese. Swahili for “chips and eggs”, chipsi mayai is one of the most beloved street foods in Tanzania. It’s made with hand-cut potatoes, peeled and fried until crispy and golden, then mixed with eggs and cooked to make a kind of omelette. It can also be mixed with peppers and onions, and it’s usually served with a tangy kachumbari of tomatoes, onions and chillies. Do as the locals do, and top it off with a squirt of ketchup and eat it with a toothpick.
