Democratic Republic of Congo in detail


Congolese cooking is some of Africa's best, and you'll eat well in DRC, though food is expensive by African standards. Typical Congolese dishes include fufu, a sticky dough made from cassava flour, and poulet à la moambé, chicken served in a sauce made from the outer layer of palm nuts. Pili pili, the incredibly hot pepper sauce beloved by the Congolese, is served with nearly everything.
