The capital Brazzaville is located in the southeast. About 1.83 million people live here, spread over one hundred square kilometers. The city is characterized by colonial and Bauhaus style buildings. Traditional markets with handmade products and various music festivals provide cultural insights. Typical dishes include porridge-like meals made from plantains or the cassava plant. In addition, there is a base of sweet potatoes, millet, corn and rice. Hearty meat soups with fresh fruits complement the African cuisine of the locals. Restaurants offer specialties such as piri piri (chicken with pepper) and boiled yams called ishu, which are derived from a tropical climbing plant and are the staple food in Africa. This is accompanied by local beer. Coconuts, papayas, mangoes and other exotic fruits form the basis of delicious desserts.
