South Africa Food


Typical South Africa food is composed of meats that people enjoy eating during happy gatherings called braais or commonly named barbecues! If you live in South Africa, you will become a braai master as you will have many opportunities to experience what it is and if you visit this beautiful country then your trip won't be complete before you attend one!

When you are inviting to a braai, don't eat meat a week before because usually, the weekly recommendation of carbohydrates for an adult is served during these 3 to 4 hours!!!

All sorts of meats are served such as kudu, ostrich, boerwors- local sausages seasoned with Indian spices, steaks, sirloins. For the fish lovers, foiled snoek (local fish)covered with apricot jam and coriander, is normally served a braais.


The side dishes are buttered mealies (corns) and different salads.

Another typical South African meal is the 'potjie'. It is a stew most of the time made of beef and various vegetables which cooks for hours in a three-legged iron pot, over open fire.

Biltong is one of the most famous snack in South Africa.
