2. Nyama Choma
If there is one meal that can be described as essentially Tanzanian and indeed East African, it has to be Nyama Choma- which means grilled meat.
It is a barbecue of goat, fish or chicken, with barbecued bananas or Ugali as side dishes.
The dish is prepared by taking freshly slaughtered meat and slow–roasting it on a grill consisting of metal fencing on top of a bed of charcoal.
