2. FUSION 9-BUKHARA
AN ABSOLUTE TREAT FOR THE TASTE BUDS
I ventured out to this new restaurant few weeks back n simply loved evrything about it. The food was gorgeous, the surrondings were superb coz they have given a very jungle like theme to the place amidst which u have a resturant,lounge,bar and a sheesha bar which is on a hieght and from there everything looks brilliant. The restuarant which has a concept of a Dhaba i-e a very ancient concept of sitting on couches called the 'charpai' ,n screening of latest bollywood songs with video's ..........oh the experience is so unwinding and relaxing. Since it is surrounded by gardens and is so open u can feel the fresh air while eating warm and sumptuous food
My personal favorite was hahahahaha nearly everything i ordered right from malai kofta (cottage cheese dumplings in a beautiful creamy sauce),chicken tandoori( i guess everyone really knows wat chicken tandoori is), dal bukhara (now that is my personal favorite as well but i dont really know what it is exactly hahah hang on but i am sure of 1 thing that it tastes simply heavenly) and finally Kashmiri rice( steamed rie with dry fruits and vegetables). Gosh the food out here is great!

3. Fang Fang
The Best Chinese Food Ever !!
The food at Fang Fang is fabulous. It used to be at the Greenland Bank Building but has since moved and is in a beautiful place now. There are private rooms for larger groups and the waitstaff is excellent. You can also choose to sit outside which is atop the roof so you can overlook the city. Very romantic setting. It is always the restaraunt of choice with our group when going to Kampala. especially after being in villages for a month. What a treat. You will not be disapointed. Prices are not expensive especially for what you get. They made us a beuatiful watermelon bowl filled with fruit complimentary to our large group. Was a nice touch.
Sweet and sour chicken. Almond Chicken, the veggie special and actually there isn't anything except maybe octopus and millet, that I don't like. The ice cream is tasty too.

My name is Vali Jamal. I am the owner of cafe Viva in Kampala. I am right now working on bringing out a magazine for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (Chogm) in November. Among other, it will attempt to provide a guide to everything in Uganda - but off-beat. The following is my guide to food in Uganda for the (mythical) adventurous traveller. It'd be nice if your readers read this and came and spoke to me. Before doing this restaurant I worked as an economist with the UN-International Labour Organization. more..

GREAT INTERNATIONAL CUISINE & BEST GAME MEAT IN UGANDA I travel to East Africa - Nairobi, Dar, Kampala and other cities, frequently. I have ate at Carnovore many times- but sadly it is no more a game meat restaurant. Recently I found about this high end International restaurant - The Lawns, in Kololo, Kampala. They serve wide variety of international cuisine, especially Game Meat. I have visited 3-4 times to The Lawns by now, and every time tried different varieties of game meat dishes - Crocodile Tikka, Sizzling Kudu, Impala Steak, etc. I suggest their Game Meat Platter is the more..

For authentic Italian food visit Cafe Roma in Muyenga. The owners are Italian and the recipes are straight from Italy. Prices are reasonable and the selection of salads (safe for Mzungu stomachs), appetizers, entrees, pasta, pizza and more is wonderful. Also they have homemade gelato if you are craving ice cream!
It is located on Tank Hill in Muyenga near the International Hotel and many NGO offices. It is a very safe area and several hotels and guest houses are in the area.
I return to Uganda often and it is one of my favorite more..

Well, yes, there are all those eating palaces in the suburbs of Kampala , converted from houses left over by Asians when they were kicked out by Idi Amin in 1972. Certainly you get great food there - at a price. Five figures in Uganda shillings may still not reach double figures in USD, but still, remember you are in a country where one-third of the people earn less than a dollar-a-day. Sorry to spoil your evening out.
At luchtime, you don't want to eat all that ghee-laden Indian food. Try cafe Viva. I love it, I go there often. It's been more..
