Happy New month! I know I am not the only one who is still puzzled at how fast this year is flying by. It’s not to late, though, to still work on those resolutions.
Last week I had a chance to visit Cassava Repulic and try their mouthwatering menu (as seen on instagram!). Cassava Repulic is located in Entebbe, a few kilometres from the airport. It is a surprising little corner in the heart of Entebbe. Once you enter, it’s a different world altogether, with chill earthy and wooden interiors.
We had the house recommend mixed platter which came with an assortment of meats, sauces, salads and surprising sides.
We started off our meal with chilled passion fruit juice. Both our platters had two kinds of chicken, which were, hands down, some of the best chicken I have tasted in a while. The contrasting flavors ( smoky and sweet) were just done right.
Alongside the chicken was roasted goat skewers. The goat was soft and tender although minimally spiced. The platter also included Nile Perch fingers with a salty herbed mayo dip. There was coleslaw which was refreshing and had the right amount of sweetness. Steamed cassava with a spicy curry sauce plantain chips and avocado on the side.
We were stuffed.
If you would like to have a laid back and unapologetic dining experience of Uganda’s street foods and more, I recommend Cassava Republic.

The photos are just wow & everything looks delicious.
I remember my visit in Uganda in 2014, the food was mind blowing. Awesome.
Thanks Olivia! It was delicious!
Yumm!! This good steamy cassava makes me yearn for home. Great job!
