Mama Africa Eating House

Fodor's Review

This a good local food experience as the menu offers typical Zimbabwean dishes along with other African food and the atmosphere is celebratory. Tuesday and Friday nights are "Africa Nights" with a buffet dinner and live music from the local jazz band. There's a good selection of vegetarian and meat dishes, too; the Mama Africa Hot Pots are especially popular. There's a biltong and peanut butter stew, chicken with peanut butter (huku nedove), and the Hunter's Hot

Pot, which is the "catch of the day" game dish. All dishes are accompanied by either sadza (cooked cornmeal which is a Zimbabwean staple) or rice. The chef prepares several dishes with peanuts, so if you have a severe allergy, it might be best to just enjoy the music and the atmosphere! It's advisable to make a reservation, especially for large groups and the Africa Nights.
