Situated on the square, Kitamu’s menu is wholly African, with dishes like Mozambican chicken, North African bread, ostrich steak, kudu skewers, crocodile pies, fried mopane worms and springbok shank pie to tantalise the taste buds. Maputo chicken curry is cooked pole pole (‘slowly, slowly’) as it is in the Mozambican capital to maximise the flavour, while the Hout Bay fish and chips will have diners believing they can smell the sea.
