About food and Drinks in Rwanda
The Rwandan food and drinks is currently relying local and international drinks, we are in the heart of Africa it has a good description of climate and weather instead in previous years the food and in this country were being relied on local vegetables and crops like beans, cassava, maize, maize flour, sweet potatoes, cabbages, potatoes, bean pods (which here can grow several tens of centimeters), tomatoes, eggplant, onions, corns, sunflowers, peas, carrots; but also many other kinds of vegetables that wouldn’t grow in other region other world: sugar cane, coffee, peanuts, rice tea, millet, and all sorts of exotic fruits: papaya, avocado, Japanese plums, pineapple, the ever-present bananas, as well as many other things. There are different kinds of bananas with very different uses: for making beer and brandy, for consummation as fruit (which, for us, was so far the only form of consuming), and special sorts that are roasted and eaten in place of potatoes, and are very tasty, we also eat meat but it is for every person to eat meats much times a week because the cow’s meat are somehow eaten by the rich people.
In restaurants you can order all sorts of roast meat, including an entire roasted chicken. It can all be eaten without any side dishes, and with your hands, which is why it is a custom to wash your hands before and after the meal with soap and water in a special washbowl brought by the waiter in some homes and traditional restaurants.
Vegetables are mostly eaten boiled, and none are processed for later use (by pickling, for example), except for pili-pili, which is in fact chilli peppers chopped in tiny pieces and put in oil – a thing lovers of very hot and spicy food would like a lot, we most like the brochettes – spiced meat chunks grilled on a stick – although all the prepared meat is mostly tough, but when meat is not on your daily menu you just learn to ignore that little imperfection.
Beer lovers mostly find comfort drinking one of the two most popular beers – Primus and Mutzing, sold in 65 centilitre bottles. In Rwanda, there is a special type of banana which people use to make beer or gin-like drink called Waragi. Coca cola is, of course, available and it tastes the same as anywhere else. Fanta Orange was, on the other hand, there is also natural beer called Urwarwa made from banana juice but currently becomes developed the Rwandans are innovating in making beers like Skol, Agashya from Nyirangarama.
The following are some commonly coffee shops, bars and restaurants:
