The most important tip I can give you on Equatorial Guinea local food, and the only one that will make you elevate from being a tourist to becoming a real traveler immersed in the local culture, is “Stay away from McDonalds“. When visiting Equatorial Guinea, there is awesome local food to try. Head to the local eateries too, and go where the locals go. For me, the food, wine and and even the water is part of the travel experience.
What to Eat in Equatorial Guinea
There are several good places to go to eat particularly in Malabo. The coffee shop at Hotel Sofitel (located just across the Cathedral along the north coast) offers French cuisine. Hotel Bahia’s main restaurant is also a favorite destination for both local and expats. If you like pizza and pasta, the Pizza Place is the best place in town.
For Asian cuisine, Restaurante Bantu offers authentic Chinese cuisine. For Morrocan and other European food, try La Luna. Try An Equatorial Guinean Cuisine such a Smoked Beef with a black pepper. There is also a roast duck with cheese and onion leaf.
What to Drink in Equatorial Guinea
Ebebiyin is known for its large number of bars. They drink a lot of wine.
