Mainly due to the Portuguese and Arabic influences, Mozambique food is interesting and indeed, flavourful. Anybody who visits Mozambique gets to enjoy this amazing cuisine, and they are going to love it!
It’s mostly about the seafood
Many tourists who come to Mozambique stay at resorts the likes of Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort and what they prefer the most about the country is the beautiful coastline and tasty seafood dishes. Try shrimp or prawns in Mozambique done in Peri-peri style.
The food in Mozambique never lacks spices. Chilli peppers, garlic, and lemons are all part of their meals and the ‘spicy’ flavor is what you’ll love the most.
You see an Arabic influence
The ethnic food you’ll get to taste at Mozambique hotels and restaurants will surely amaze you as they are highly varied. Arabs were the ones who introduced spices and pastries to the Africans, and what you get to taste in Mozambique is a good combination of both.
Ethnic beliefs on food
The main meal that the people in Mozambique (in the cities) enjoy is the dinner and as the culture has some Catholic influence on it, they often avoid eating meat on Fridays.
