Kampala Foodies have yet another food plot to care about as Bushenyi’s famous food festival has been announced for this Weekend.
Just only few days after big food events including KCCA Foodie Street,East African meat carnival and Tokosa Food festival, then comes yet another dubbed ‘Kabagarame Kampala Festival’ which is scheduled for September 21, 2019 at Naguru Hilltop Hotel.
Kabagarame literally means effects of food satisfaction; it is a famous food market in Bushenyi where people from all walks of life gather every weekend to enjoy uniquely prepared pork accompanied with either ‘kalo’ or ‘Matooke’ and a cold beer such as Tusker Lite to quench their thirst.
At the famous Kabagarame, dishes are prepared and served in a traditional setting with an attractive look and tasty appetites. On market days, the ethnic foods are accompanied by pork either fried or roasted.
Foods on display range from bitter, tangy to sweet delicacies. Only local and fresh spices are added.
This imparts a special taste and renders the food healthy and hygienic hence its distinctive brand image that stands out from the rest of the food festivals on the market. When at the joint, using silverware when enjoying the meal is a taboo.
While addressing journalists, one of the event organizers Owen Phillip Mwesigye said that the festival is born out of the desire to bring a cherished food experience and social networking closer to the city audience.
“It is an annual celebration packaged with food tourism, family and friend moments, the food is purely organic,” he said.
