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:

 Musanze overview food and drinks

 The cuisine of Rwanda is based on local staple foods produced by subsistence agriculture such as bananas, plantains (known as ibitoke), pulses, sweet potatoes, beans, and cassava (manioc). Many Rwandans do not eat meat more than a few times a month. For those who live near lakes and have access to fish, tilapia is popular. The potato, thought to have been introduced to Rwanda by German and Belgian colonialists, is very popular. Ugali (or bugali) is a paste made from cassava or maize and water to form a porridge-like consistency that is eaten throughout East Africa. Isombe is made from mashed cassava leaves and served with dried fish. Lunch is usually a buffet known as melange, consisting of the above staples and possibly meat. Brochettes are the most popular food when eating out in the evening, usually made from goat but sometimes tripe, beef or fish. In rural areas, many bars have a brochette seller responsible for tending and slaughtering the goats, skewering and barbecuing the meat, and serving it with grilled bananas. Milk, particularly in a fermented form called ikivuguto, is a common drink throughout the country. Other drinks include a traditional beer called urwagwa, made from sorghum or bananas, which features in traditional rituals and ceremonies. Commercial beers brewed in Rwanda include Primus, Mützig, Turbo King, Amstel Light and Skol.
  Eating Out
Dining out can be an enjoyable, yet adventurous experience in Musanze. From the small local shops selling traditional samosas and African tea to the first pizza parlor in town, this city offers an assortment of interesting delicacies to satisfy your palate. However, don’t go out to eat in a hurry, because the restaurant staff sure won’t be! A typical meal at any restaurant can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours! So, sit back, relax, and enjoy a large Primus “akonje” (“cold”) while you wait for your tasty Rwandan cuisine!
