Around Town

Traditional Tanzanian Cuisine on #RynsWorldTour

The way to my heart is absolutely through my stomach, and since I was already in love with Tanzania, this next experience would have made me the equivalent of an obsessed girlfriend.  100% drunk in love, call me every five minutes to say hi, call out of work, let’s just cuddle and watch netflix all day, OBSESSED!

We met Simai of KV Tours
 at the Darajani Market in Stone Town, Zanzibar where we got a history of the area, the significance of the market, and how the locals plan their meals. Once that was complete, we went into the market to shop for our ingredients before heading to a private home where we would make some of the best dishes I’ve ever had.

One of the cool things about this experience is that a portion of the proceeds and tip goes towards an academy which trains young boys and girls to facilitate tours of their own, and prepares them to be able to contribute to their households.  One of the students, Omar, joined us on our tour as part of his curriculum, and he was an awesome tour guide in training. 


After discussiong dietary restrictions of the group, we were all set to plan our culinary adventure!

On the Menu:

Pilau with King Fish (Rice Pilaf with potatoes and King Fish)

Ndizi za Tamu (Plantains cooked in homemade coconut milk)
