in Harare

Highly recommended by locals, this restaurant has traditional Zimbabwean cuisine served under a thatched roof around a large roaring fire. Lunch draws a busy crowd filling up on sadza (maize-meal porridge) and other dishes, including goat and guinea fowl. Vegetarians are catered for with tasty leaf-vegetable dishes. It's about a US$5 cab ride from town.

It can open for dinner if you book ahead, but otherwise it's lunch only.
