Food Stalls in Forodhani Gardens Feb 07, 2017
Enjoy octopus, shark, king fish, chicken, and more. Every night in Forodhani Gardens large tables of food are put up and the stallholders all have a barbecue grill on the top. You choose your dish and they heat it up. They will put a 'curry' sauce on, but not too much! It is more of a hot pepper sauce. Prices are negotiable, but watch out. Some tables will try and charge you 10 times what the next table will ask for the same thing. Negotiate a price for one piece, then a lower price for 2 and so on. If there is a tourist cruise ship in the harbour, a lot more tables appear and their prices can be just the same as an indoor restaurant. Find someone who will give you reasonable prices and stay with them. Small pieces of meat or a kebab stick should be about $1 US or less. It is recommended not to eat shellfish in low tourist season. If you ask you can find the man who brings you cold beers to you for less than $2 each. This is an event in itself and not to be missed!

Favorite Dish:

Octopus with some spicy sauce and a cold !Kilimanjaro Lager !
