Eating Luwombo in Uganda

There’s plenty of it served in banana leaves. Very nice. Outdoor-ish seating under parasols and relaxed atmosphere.

Luwombo is an authentic and good Ugandan food. Highly recommended if you want to try local food but you are tired of street food and its eally cheap!

For all you foodies out there you must. There is a variety of food to choose from, this is the true African Soul Food, Enjoy!!


Black lines run down a gold banana leaf. A string is tied around the top ends of the leaf, like a neck tie, creating a pouch. The unknown contents of the immaculately wrapped pouch – and the accompanying aroma – raise curiosity.

This is the traditional way of making luwombo, a unique mixture of sauce and a variety of ingredients enveloped in a banana leaf and then steamed over a fire for hours.

Making luwombo calls for careful preparation.
