If you are in Kampala as a tourist, you will find some restaurants in certain neighborhoods
For example. Acaciamall is a nice mall in Kampala. Outside there is a restaurant and if you pass by you’ll see only tourist. But if you go in acaciamall and go to the first floor, you will find a foodcourt with more local people.

So if you are just like me and want to eat as much local food (and with local people) then this article is for you!!


Kololo is a big neighborhood with lost of restaurants for tourist. But you can also find some restaurants where more local people eat. Bistrona is one of them. You can enjoy there local food, but also pizza and fries. Want to chill at the swimming pool??
