CAPE VERDEAN FOOD

‘Fusion’ is the perfect word to describe the Cape Verde islands in general, but nowhere is it more appropriate than when talking about food. With a Portuguese flair for fresh fish and seafood mixed with African flavours and Brazilian spice, you should take every opportunity to experience Cape Verde culture through the stomach! Santa Maria has the best offering on Sal: look out for Chez Pastis tucked away on Rue Amílcar Cabral for the delicious lobster and steak –but book ahead, as it’s fairly small and very popular. Make sure you try national dish cachupa, a colourful stew with maize, yams, tomatoes and cabbage that you’ll find at generous buffet restaurants like Lanchonete D'Angela on Santa Maria Beach.
