Lilongwe in detail


Lilongwe is certainly not a culinary destination, but there's enough choice to fill a day or two; from cafes serving fast food and local dishes, mostly around Old Town, to international and Indian restaurants and some lovely garden cafes. The midrange and top-end hotels generally have restaurants, many open to nonguests.


There are decent supermarkets all over the city; two good examples are the Old Town Shoprite and the City Centre Spar.
