Cuisine in Mozambique

The cuisine in Mozambique is usually flavorful and spicy. There are delicious tropical fruits to enjoy and some of the best fish and shellfish in the world. Mozambican dishes are prepared in their own unique flavors and ways, including open grills. Madeira, the Portuguese table wine and Agua Ardente, red port wine, are frequently used in sauces. Agriculture is part of the culture and most families grown their own corn.

Quench your thirst with Laurentina and 2M, two popular Mozambican beers. Or Tipo Tinto, the national rum, which is usually mixed with berry soda. Are you an adventurous foodie? You can eat some unusual local delicacies in Mozambique, including green bugs that are boiled and fried, and dried bush mice, served on a stick.

Try some of these delicious dishes of Mozambique:

  • Xima / Nsima: a staple maize porridge dish that is eaten with most meals.
  • Paõ: Portuguese wood-fired white bread rolls.
  • Couve: collard greens.
  • Prego: a steak roll.
  • Rissois: battered shrimp.
  • Espetada: kebab.
  • Piripiri: chicken in piripi sauce.
  • Matata: a delicious seafood and peanut stew.
  • Sandes de queijo: a baked cheese sandwich.
  • Malasadas: donuts.
  • Bolo Polana: cashew and potato cake.

WHAT OUR GUESTs SAY

One of the very best travel experiences I have ever had. We even got updates once at 3 am! He also made one change in one day’s itinerary to accommodate our wishes which was very wonderful. For business, I have traveled to Europe, Russia, all over Asia and South Africa but was blown away by all the beautiful sites in Argentina and Chile.
