I want to go back to Dar, Tanzania 🙂
Dar Salaam was amazing to me last year. I was so relaxed when I visited because I had very little going on in my life and all that I needed to do is relax and enjoy the breeze. The one thing I loved about the place was the fresh sea food but on the flip side, the traffic situation is a mess. Being Kenyan, I should not complain about the traffic but I have to tell you guys, the foleni is worse than what we experience Nairobi. When traveling to Dar from Nairobi, you can book a flight via Kenya Airways or Precision Air or take Dar Express or Dar Lux buses that cost about 3,000KSh one way.
I had a fantastic experience dining in all these places.
I am addicted to calamari and that is usually the first thing I always ask for when I go to sea food restaurants. I have been looking for the best calamari around and I think I finally found it in Diani, but thats another day’s story. I loved the calamari at the Karambezi and the ambience. It was quite romantic.
I have a friend who insisted on taking me to the News Caffe in Dar because unlike the Kenyan branches, this one had the best poached egg in the continent. He drummed it up so much, I would be a fool not to experience the best breakfast in Africa. As much as I would have liked top burst his bubble I had to agree with him, the food was amazing.
The Cape Town Fish Market.
Being very high on the must visit places on trip advisor, I had to eat at the Cape Town fish market. The weather was perfect when I was there and to my surprise, there were men in suits having lunch (seriously? Who wears suits at the Coast?) Anyway, I was asked for sushi and I was a little disappointed. Everyone else loved their meal but I guess I kept comparing it to my favorite restaurant in Kenya, Ocean Basket- Oval Branch.
I dont remember the name of the restaurant but it was in Oyster Bay.
I was so full from my buffet breakfast to have anything substantial here so In asked for a fruit salad and enjoyed some good company and the view that was totally epic.
