Afrikaans cuisine consists of plenty of meat, vegetables, and rice or potatoes. The braai (barbecue) is the most famous way of cooking meat.

Here you will find some of the most famous South African dishes that will surely make your palate dance.


An all-time dinner favorite, this is made from minced meat simmered with spices. Usually curry powder, herbs, and dried fruit such as raisins or sultanas are used to simmer.

In English, boerewors can be translated to “farmer’s sausage”. This sausage is made from minced beef and contains spices such as cloves, coriander, and nutmeg.
