5 Delicious Dishes From Across Africa by Opinionated: 12:09pm On Mar 14
When traveling Africa, you do not need to worry about what to eat as the continent offers a potpourri of delicious foods. This should not be a surprise considering Africa’s colorful cultural heritage which has influenced what we eat for decades. As such, Jumia Food shares some of the delicious and popular foods you must try in Africa.

Nyama Choma, Kenya


Kenya is a popular African travel destination and one of the foods you must not miss on a visit to the country is Nyama Choma (roasted meat). Kenyans love nyama choma, and it is the preferred means of celebrating birthdays, weddings and visiting guests.

Bunny chow, South Africa


Bunny chow is a South African dish consisting of a hollowed out loaf of bread filled with curry. It is a treasured South African street food. It is available as takeaways in all major cities, but to get the best bunnies you have to go to Durban.

Shakshouka, North Africa


Shakshouka is a delicious dish made with eggs, parsley, onions, garlic and tomatoes. The eggs are poached in the sauce made with other ingredients and spiced with cumin. It is mostly consumed in North Africa in countries like Tunisia, Libya, Algeria and Egypt.

Jollof Rice, Nigeria


Jollof Rice is Nigeria’s most popular cuisine. This single cuisine has led to intense spat between Nigerians and Ghanaians on which country prepare the best Jollof. Your visit to Nigeria is incomplete without tasting Jollof. You can visit Jumia Food to check out restaurants you can order Jollof from.

Cholent, Morocco


Cholent is a traditional Jewish dish usually made with sliced potatoes, beans, meat stew, barley, onions and flavoured seasoning. The food is cooked overnight for close to 12 hours and eaten on Shabbat for lunch. You will find this delicious dish in Morocco.

Ghana Banku, Nigeria Pounded Yam, Ghana jollof rice (wanke) and Nigeria jollof are my favourite. Still yearning to try more cuisines from other Africa countries.

Tajine/maraq is far more popular in Maghreb.

Whether meat/chicken or vegetable or mixed tajine.

I like Moroccan tajine a lot.

Jollof rice migrated from Senegal then settled in Nigeria. It was actually in an orphanage (Wolof orphanage) before Nigerian parents adopted it, cleaned it up, took care of it, gave it lots of love and made it famous.
