Unfortunately, Botswanan cuisine is not easy to find in New York City. We did our best to scope out possible hidden restaurants tucked away in outer borough neighborhoods, but had no luck. In the final act of desperation, we relied on the old standby – the UN Mission – and the staff there told us that in fact, no, there are no Botswanan restaurants in the city. Bummer.
Ultimately, we used the last resort option of cooking the meal at home. I actually like when we get to cook because (1) I get to do the cooking (and I like to cook), (2) I get to try new cooking methods, and (3) Looking for all the ingredients is an adventure in itself! If you can find all the ingredients you need to cook a meal from Botswana, you can experience the flavors of that country in your NYC home. A true Confined Nomad experience. read more »
