Liberia in detail

Eating

Rice and spicy meat sauces or fish stews are popular Liberian dishes. Palm butter with fish and potato greens are two favourites. Other popular dishes include palava sauce (made with plato leaf, dried fish or meat and palm oil) and jollof rice (rice and vegetables with meat or fish). American food is popular in Monrovia. Restaurants in Monrovia are sophisticated and varied; outside the capital, options are more limited.
