SSouth Africa is a country that’s diverse in its culture and language, and if there’s one thing that brings South Africans together it’s food. Not just any food, but braai (barbecued) meat that’s been prepared at a shisa nyama.

Shisa nyama, which literally means burnt meat in Zulu, is the term used in townships to describe where people make and serve the braais. People from all walks of life flock to shisa nyamas, whether they’re the CEO of a successful company or a general worker, and if there’s one place that doesn’t grade you on who you are in the outside world, it’s a shisa nyama. They’re fantastic tourist attractions as you can experience the liveliness and authenticity in the heart of a township, and if you aren’t welcomed by plumes of smoke from the braai, you’re surely at the wrong place.
