It is known to be a major city and commercial port that grew from a fishing village to what it is now - Home to many, a fast-growing city with a rich history and most importantly an abundance of flavourful cuisines. Dar es Salaam harbors some of the very best spots to dine in and here are the five that grilled the meat out of our minds.
Sitting on a cliff in Masaki by the Indian Ocean, Karambezi is surrounded by a beautiful 180degree view of the sea with a breeze that would make you feel right at home. Their delicious fresh seafood, juicy burgers and big pizzas will satisfy the foodie in you BUT it's their grilled section that had us going insane and wouldn’t stop chewing. Our pick, their “African Bbq” features a properly Marinated grilled Chicken & BBQ Beef skewers served with roasted butternut, pilau rice, and chips on the side. If that did not just water your mouth then we’re worried for you, haha.

Two Spoons Grill
“Happiness is licking the Spoon” as Two Spoons Grill says it and we couldn’t agree more. May we just add that Joy would be you attaching their properly spiced grilled goodies, Like their Delicious, soft and tender beef Pepper steak that’s served with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Two spoons grill is the home of some of the best skewers as they feature their special prawns, chicken, fish, and Nundu skewers. The Bbq is located along Indira Gandhi Street in CBD and is open the weekends from Friday to Sunday. Try their specials and tell us what you think ;).

Their name starts with BEST for a reason. Truly One of the very legends of restaurants in Dar es Salaam. Resting in one of the coolest and busy spots, Namanga. They too have it all from wings, burgers, grilled chickens, etc and offer us a continental cuisine that covers many flavors of the world. Some would call it a home of memories from the many birthday parties it hosted, to the romantic dates but we just loooove their mastery in grilled food. Their grilled chicken wings tossed with barbecue sauce, all the way served with ranch sauce will bring the hallelujah out of you. We know because we’ve tried it and are obsessed with it.
