Black Bean Taqueria Gives Us Flavours From Mexico

When I think of Mexico the first things that come to mind (in no particular order) are El Chapo, Narcos, Trump’s border wall, beautiful people and amazing food (Not that I had tasted Mexican cuisine before). No matter which corner of the world you are you can’t escape the talk of Mexican food. Taco Tuesday…

Restaurant Review: Rocomamas; Should You Believe The Hype?

When I look at restaurants I always think of them in 3 categories; fast food, fine dining (three course meals and whatever) and the in between. The first 2 are always easy to recognise but the third group is here and there. I find that Rocomamas fits into that third zone, along with the likes…

An Overdose Of Chicken From Foodie.com

As usual my Instagram surfing always ends with me discovering some food service or restaurant I didn’t know about. And this is detrimental to my wallet and absolute torture on my cravings. Foodie.com was one such discovery. Although they call themselves that (Foodie.com) that’s not an actual website they use but that’s not important. It’s…

Tipsy Scoops: Ice-cream With A Delicious Alcoholic Twist

If you had thrown the idea of alcohol infused ice cream to me before, I would’ve thought it bounded on the ridiculous. Something you thought of when you a had few in you or you had a few puffs of that good herb. Funny enough the founders of Tipsy Scoops say it was a drunk…

Fast Food: Is Pizza Hut The Best Thing Around Right Now?

For a long time the Zimbabwean pizza market had been dominated by Pizza Inn, of course they were several restaurants who also indulged in the art but there wasn’t another chain that challenged them. Well until Pizza Slice came and on the outside it seemed like a carbon copy of the Inn chain but it…

Restaurant Review: Pogos, Harare (Kamfinsa)

Squeezed into this quaint space at Kamfinsa shopping centre in Greendale, Pogos seems like the most calm location for a meal. From the outside it seems like it’s filled with the centre of nature and on the right day just being there would be great even without the food. Now on this occasion I didn’t…

Restaurant Review: Springroll Centre, Harare (Fife Ave)

One of my absolute favourite things to have is Chinese cuisine. I don’t really explore options on the menu but those few favourites I have are close to my heart. I find springrolls seriously good but then I’m picky, not every Chinese cuisine outlet will hit the right spot. Kow Lee ranks at the top…

Fast Food: Pizza Inn Still As Good As Ever?

A longtime Zimbabwean favourite has always been pizza inn. I think it’s probably one of the first pizza franchises to achieve countrywide success and well when I tried my first pizza slice it was warranted. As a child my first love was Hawaiian and to this day the flames of love still burn. So it’s…

ZO Flavours For Some Homecooked Goodness

It seems like lockdown has seen a rise in people ordering homemade goodness over fast food or maybe that’s just the people around me. But you can’t argue with the logic, there’s just something richly satisfying about home cooked meals. During some Instagram food surfing I bumped into ZO Flavours. I should probably stay of…

Traditional Zimbabwean Flavours And The Meals’Yum

There’s nothing quite Zimbabwean like our relationship with peanut butter (Even if you’re allergic to nuts you can’t avoid it). We put it in everything from our cereal to our chicken and most importantly our rice. Sadza is not unique to Zimbabwe alone but it’s also first on the list of our beloved traditional meals….
