Food and drink businesses profilerate in Zambia. Holidaymakers, families treating themselves, business associates meeting for a discussion, and those on the road, all need one thing - good food that's ready to eat. Zambia has a truly rich variety of eating places, scattered all over the country but clustered in the major cities. Similarly the visitor will be spoiled for choice when deciding where to go for a drink with friends or family.
Since fresh fish - usually tilapia (bream) - abounds in Zambia, it is often found on restaurant menus, as well as different types of game meat. Otherwise fine dining, casual dining and take away restaurants mostly follow the internatonal standard, whereas traditional restaurants are unique - both in regard to their atmosphere and their menu. Whilst the staple is usually nshima, the relish can be anything from nkhuku (village chicken) to finkubala (roasted caterpillar). Frequented by locals, these restaurants can give the visitor a great introduction to the Zambian culture.
For a cheap but satisfying meal, try a cafe or travel break, whilst at the other end of the scale, premier lounges offer intimacy with gourmet food and drink, all at a price.
Lastly, Zambian pubs and bars vary too - from the noisy local pub or sports bar to the sophisticated hotel drinking place. Drinks menus have a few local brands such as Mosi and Castle lagers, and Amarula liqueur from South Africa. Otherwise you'll usually find international brands of beer, lager, whiskey, brandy, vodka, gin etc.
