You can't come to Zanzibar and not try the delicious local food! With influences from all over the world, you can be assured that it packs a punch when it comes to flavour. The Passing Show Hotel is one of the best spots to go for authentic cuisine. Try the biryani and pilau rice and the classic samosas!

A true locals spot, there is not much decor to draw you in, but you can sit comfortably on the porch outside and take in a little people watching with your meal. The chicken biriyani comes with a thick delicious sauce and is worth trying if you are looking for a meal.

Every time I am in Zanzibar, this is my first stop after dropping off my luggage at the hotel. I usually find myself there for lunch every day I'm in Stone Town. They serve tasty, authentic local fare and fresh juices. I highly recommend a plate of beef biryani along with a glass of tamarind juice. Their house-made chili sauce it the stuff of legend.
