Sierra Leone in detail


Sierra Leone is known for its cuisine, and every town has at least one cookery (basic eating house) serving chop (meals). Rice is the staple and plasas (pounded potato or cassava leaves, cooked with palm oil and often fish or beef) is the most common sauce. Other typical dishes include okra sauce, groundnut stew and pepper soup. Street food, such as fried chicken, roasted corn, chicken kebabs and fry fry (simple sandwiches), is easy to find.
