African foods come in a variety of delectable tastes.
Below are some of our favourites from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Nigeria and Tanzania.
South African Bunny Chow
The Bunny Chow is one of South Africa’s ultimate street foods.
Its basically a meat curry stew stuffed half loaf of bread to keep you going all day.
Bunny Chow is quite a versatile dish and can be Vegeterian as well as with a variety of meat stews and curry fillings ranging from lamb, chicken and Beef.
The roots and origins of Bunny Chow can be found in South Africa’s History of Indian indentured Labour in the City of Durban which is where it originated.
Bunny Chow appears to have been a staple amongst indentured Indian labourers who worked long hours on Durban’s Sugar Plantations.
Eventually it spread from the Sugar Cane fields to the Streets, and the rest they say is History.
