Best African Food Restaurant in Hamilton

African Restaurant in Hamilton, ON

African cuisine is gaining popularity in the western world because it’s a cuisine that is healthy, filled with big bold flavors, and contains a whole lot of superfoods. African cuisine is as diverse as its landscape and you can find great food from any part of its continent. Although when asked about African cuisine most would say lamb or Moroccan style couscous there is so much more to explore and discover. Just like with any other ethnically diverse cuisine each part of Africa contains its own local fruits, vegetables, and spices that make up its own distinct dishes to that region.

North African flavors have been developed through their connection with the Mediterranean. With foods like olives and spices such as cinnamon and saffron. Despite the Mediterranean influence they still have their own special and unique flavors like a spicy harissa paste used in marinades.

In East Africa, they have influences from Indian and Middle Eastern spices. Whereas West Africa tends to use fewer spices compared to their neighbors in the North and East but still love their hot peppers. Now South Africa has the most global influence when it comes to its cuisine. The South’s cuisine is a combined influence of Dutch, Malay, African, and French cuisine.
