The lake is incredible, surrounded by lush green mountains. It’s a perfect place in Rwanda to spend some time relaxing, learning about the culture, and eating. One of the main Rwandan foods to eat at Lake Kivu is sambaza, a fish similar to sardines. To begin this food and cultural tour of Gisenyi, Lake Kivu, we first stopped off at the local market, and took a boat ride. They were not allowed to fish on that day to control the fishing, but the fishermen gave us a quick lesson on how they fish, and took us out on a boat just to show us. It was one of the highlights of the day for me. The fishing boats are so peaceful and the rowing songs were amazing. After having a quick snack of some deep fried sambaza, which were delicious, we continued on to one of the biggest fresh markets in Gisenyi. We saw ladies pounding cassava leaves, and stopped to eat some fruit. The tree tomatoes in Rwanda by the way are delicious. Ibyiwacu Restaurant - Next we ate a quick Rwandan food lunch at a local restaurant. Buffets are very common in Rwanda, you choose all your different starches, with beans, and a couple of different sauces, and you can choose if you want meat or without meal. Overall, very good and fresh food, a little plain, but good with some extra chili sauce. Price - 1,500 RWF ($1.70) per person Next we headed to a local home for a home cooked African meal, including some of the local ingredients commonly used in the culture around Lake Kivu. Sambaza are a staple, but since we already had some fried, they made a peanut (groundnut) stew with the fish, and also made some vegetable dishes, with rice, and a number of other starches. The sambaza with peanut sauce was the BEST meal of my entire trip to Rwanda.

it's not "healthier" to skimp on fat. we've been lied to about how important and amazing fat is.

it looks like rwanda is not very diverse. it seems like the united nations who wants europe to be diverse, needs to make africa, thailand, and other oriental places more diverse.

This was just so interesting! I really liked the man who was explaining everything to you. I was also surprised to learn that they drink Kombucha there too! I enjoyed seeing the tree tomatoes! Cooking healthier foods in the restaurant ! "It tastes like pumpkin leaves?" I cannot believe you hve tasted pumpkin leaves. Watching all your videos really inspires me to find new spicy sauces, which I always loved but got out of the habit of using. I also want to try new vegetables, now, that I have never tried before! You are such an inspiration, Mark!

Mark , please do not abuse the local’s generosity and kindness by not paying their produce. They may be kind but too shy to ask you to pay. These people are poor and do not have the luxury like you to travel the world.

Again, another amazing video from Rwanda. Mark that green vegetable at the restaurant is Stinging Nettle, it's poisonous to touch but makes a delicious side dish. In Ethiopia we call it Sama and it's usually served during Lent.
