Breakfast with the Swahili Man

Hey boo!

If you are in Tanzania especially in the city like #DaresSalaam once after the sun rise & you are a foodie you’ll notice the difference in the availability & choices you’ll have for your #Morningmeal

First, in Tanzania we have places mostly referred as #Ushuani these are poshy, classy, descent, civilized areas and being a foodie you may be having appetite but you will be limited with what to eat. Breakfast mostly will include Bread, eggs that you may quickly grab them from the nearby store.. okay to add sausages and fruits if you have them at home.
But coming to the mostly known as #Uswazi or #Uswahilini where it’s referred as areas of the lower class, uncivilized, the local etc here is where as a foodie you’ll be amazed. People from these areas are full of culture & leave away yo’ appetite because the variety of food in the morning is endless🤗 #Heaven …. It’s from one door step to the other you’ll meet mama Juma cooking mandazi, while bibi Salehe serves goat head soup & Mama Tatu fries sweet potatoes with the famous chachandu 😍…
Here is to the beginning of our #31Swahili morning meal ideas. Food with culture influence, love, passion, creativity & easy to try it at your own kitchen!
