Local street markets offer a great variety of goods including vegetables, fruits, fish, meat, kitchen tools, house utensils, shoes, coal, etc. at rather affordable prices. The market is a vibrant place where to test your bargaining skills.
In few supermarkets in town (of course, air conditioned) prices are set and rather high. Yet, they are the best place to buy dairy products such as cheese, yogurt and milk!
The first cooking class
The main ingredients of the soup are palm nuts (the same that are used for palm oil), fish (or meat), onions, tomatoes and green peppers. Here the receipt in short (see pictures below): pound the palm nuts separating the seeds from the chaff; add water and then sieve several times to separate the nuts from the juice. Meanwhile prepare the fish with onions, peppers and tomatoes in a large pot. Add the juice to the fish and boil for one hour.
