“Must Eat Here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

When the waiter brought our food without any cutlery I knew we were in the right place. So after he poured water over my right hand I dug right in. While the "offals," tongue or gizzards may not appeal to you, the village chicken -- read free-range -- and the fish are wonderful. And the fish sauce is perfect as a dip for the pap.

When we asked people at the guest house where to find "real" Zambian food -- including some locals who were hanging out in the bar -- they didn't know about The African Village. So if you find yourself in Lusaka, make sure you don't miss it. A meal costs about $10.

The only suggestion I would make is that they add beer and fruit juice to the menu as fizzy drinks and water is limited.
