15 Cameroonian Meals the Whole World Should be Enjoying
One of the things Cameroon is blessed with is food! There is so much variety in dishes and so many ways to use main ingredients. I’m making this post to honour Cameroonian food and tell the world that if you’ve never eaten Cameroonian, then you are missing out on a whole lot. Here are fifteen Cameroon meals the whole world, including you, should be enjoying.

1. Egusi Pudding

This is a savoury pudding made out of melon seeds, known in Cameroon as Egusi. If cake had a savoury sister, this is it! Get the recipe here.

2.  Koki Beans

Believe me when I say this is the most ingenious way to cook black eyed peas. It is an almost melt in the mouth bite that is divine when paired with boiled plantains. Get the recipe here.

This is the rice of your dreams! Spicy, flavourful, meaty, I could go on and on. Get the recipe here.

  27. I went to a Cameroonian wedding last Saturday and I was so excited to try the food as I love trying new food. I tried the jollof rice, it's very different from Nigerian jollof but it tastes really good as well. There was some ndole as well but I didn't try some cos I didn't know what it was . Later, a woman explained what it was to me but I was leaving so I couldn't try it. Great post and thank you for your comment! xx


  28. Cameroon really is blessed with delicious food. I went to Limbe for a wedding years ago but still remember how fresh and tasty all the food was. Soooooo good. I haven't tried most of these 15 dishes so I'm very glad to have discovered your blog! (I came here from Bella Naija.)

  29. Now I want to go cook some Jollof. I'm sure you would have loved Ndole if you tried it. Thanks for stopping by, dear!

  30. Hi Daddy's girl, so glad to meet you!!
    Do you remember the names of the meals you ate in Limbe?
    Thanks for stopping by, dear! Hope you come around more often.

  31. Hi Precious, I remember eating some delicious and delectable grilled fish, and also some amazing vegetable soup (not sure of the name) and of course some yummy Cameroonian jollof. Your blog is excellent, I'm enjoying it.

  32. Okay I see. Glad you enjoyed your Cameroonian dining experience!
    Thanks for your comment on the blog, sweetie.

    • Hi Selva, so sorry for the late response. I really don’t know if there’s a Cameroonian restaurant around Chicago. You could Google it and see what you come up with.
