Food in South Africa

Indigenous South African cuisine is not wildly exciting, since African staples include solid (even stolid?) dishes like stiff grain porridge and simple sauce-based meat/vegetables, and traditional Afrikaans food tends to be heavier on the waistline than on gourmet value or taste. The distinctive South African contribution to world cuisine is the endearingly named bunny chow, a half-loaf of white bread filled with curried beans, chicken or sardines. A typical South African breakfast is an exercise in extravagance – strips of bacon, eggs and boerewoers swimming in fat.

But South Africa does have the unmistakable advantage of being home to a huge range of cultures from around the world and therefore a mouth-watering choice of culinary experiences awaits you – this includes Portuguese, Italian and Indian food. One area where South Africa scores over most African destinations and competes with the best in the world is seafood, cooked in a range of local and international styles.
