Healthy products without preservatives, fresh straight from the field and the ocean

    Kazi Kazi is a small restaurant in Zanzibar in the town of Bweju. Nobody would give a penny for it, because it is a booth made of sticks and palm leaves. But there is a cook there - they call him Chef, who prepares brilliant dishes. All products are fresh, without preservatives and not even frozen. I will only add that I have gastric problems, constant acidosis and heartburn. I brought a backpack of pills, and in two months I haven't taken a single one, and I normally take the pills every day   Zanzibar Lobster from the Kazi Kazi bar

    Lobster must be ordered the day before, because it is not always available. Its preparation is the boss's secret. It is stewed in vegetables with the right amount of local spices.

Cooking octopus

 

Here, the matter is more complicated, because the octopus must be properly prepared. It should be thoroughly and repeatedly ground in sand to get rid of the mucus it is covered with, then beat it with a stick for a few minutes to make it crumble. Some people hit the octopus against stones. If this is not done, the meat will be rubbery and eatable.  a1.jpg a2.jpg a3.jpg a4.jpg The way of serving
