    Ou Canal ( pronounced Oh canale ): Eat local - Port Gentil

    by tarponjohn2002 Written Dec 17, 2006

    Best value for money and great fish , you choose the fish and they cook it. Its dirt cheap and served with smile. I suggest brochettes de capitaine ( fish brochettes) fried bananas, rice and chili sauce....with a cold Regab beer...should all be less than CFA 6000...much less.

    To get there take a's in the old village part of town...

    In the forest: Wild honey

    by kokoryko Written Sep 17, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another food "tip": smoke the wild bee hives to get the honey; this works requires some skills in order not to be attacked by the bee swarm; smoking the hive makes the bees sleep or at least they are not agressive. You then can gather the honeycombs and let the honey flow into a calabash or other container; you also can eat the honeycomb like a piece of bread, yammmmm.

    Use wet wood for the smoke The bees are quiet Check if there is enough smoke The honey comb in few second the honey will flow in my mouth mmmm

    Rain forest: Crocodile is good.

    by kokoryko Written Sep 9, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the small rivers of Gabon, you sometimes come across crocodiles; these are small ones and generally try to escape, they know they are food, not like in East Africa where the Nile crocodile is waiting for you for his dinner.
    Well, crocodile in the rain forest is best prepared as a stew, it tastes like something between chicken and fish.
    In town some restaurants served grilled crocodile dishes, it is not as tasty .

    Favorite Dish: Crocodile stew, eat with your fingers, drink water, and listen to the insects in the trees at night.

    Crocodile for dinner tonight preparing the small crocodile

    the forest: Eat what you catch

    by kokoryko Written Sep 9, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    People from Gabon, mainly those living near the forest or having ancestors in the forest are still hunters, and they enjoy eating game. No restaurants just tell about some "special" meals.
    It may sound weird, but after few days of canned food you are ready to eat everything.
    The Pangolin (Manis tetradactyla or Manis gigantea) is an ant eater and this gives a special taste to its meat.This animal has big scales protecting it and it is difficult to prepare. The scales are burn and can easily be picked off, then, prepare it as a stew, with some spices ; rice is a good sidedish.

    Favorite Dish: Pangolin stew, with palm oil and manioc.

    Burning the scales Chopping the animal

    The is only one chinees restaurant is Port Gentill that is very good. It is expensive but the food is good, if you like chinees that is. There are a lot of little restaurants, held by local famillies. You can eat snake and other anymals.
