Malawi’s cities offer a good choice of dining options, many of which are found in the big hotels and resorts. Haute cuisine, Chinese, Korean, and European restaurants can be enjoyed, all of which utilize fresh poultry, fruit, vegetables, and dairy products of this agricultural land.
Malawi’s local specialty is the Tilapia from Lake Malawi, and the basic culinary staple is maize. Beer and gin are locally produced making them flavorful and inexpensive. In regards to nightlife, there’s very little available in the Western-style, and what’s there is linked to restaurants in the upscale hotels and a smattering of bars in Lilongwe and Blantyre.
