Mozambique has always been a foodies’ paradise with tropical fruits, plentiful seafood, including fish from its own land and seas. As much as the scenic beauty of the island delights the sights of your eyes, the food you find at this beautiful nation will delight your taste buds!
Prawns – for seafood lovers
Seafood in Mozambique is always unique, but prawns surely are the best. Go to a Mozambique restaurant and ask for prawns, and you will get them grilled or fried with rice or French fries at prices not too high.
Matapa – a local taste
Generally, local cuisine does not top the menus in many international resorts but at places the likes of Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort, it does! It’s made from stewed cassava leaves- a leaf similar to spinach, ground peanuts, garlic, and coconut milk. And yes, you are going to love it!
Cashews – for a difference
You may not know that Mozambique was once a large producer of cashew in the whole world. When you are on the way to the beach, you may find people selling cashew all over the places, and do not forget to taste some roasted peri-peri ones which taste absolutely divine!
A variety of tropical fruits
Thanks to the tropical climate in Mozambique, it’s blessed with several good fruits that we all love. You find papayas, avocados, coconuts and also the small mangoes, which are the tastiest of all.
