The Batswana locals believe in a big lunch while the rest of the meals mostly comprise of tea and bread or maybe any leftover. Their diet is very similar to those inhabiting the rest of South Africa. Lamb, mutton, chicken and other meats form a significant part of their diet, with beef being the king of them all. Pulse dishes are also very popular as the country has many varieties of beans and peas being grown. A few popular local dishes are:
Seswaa- Their national dish is a meat stew served with thick maize or green leaves called Morogo.
Vetkoek is deep fried dough which is late stuffed with curried mince.
Botswana has its own variety of beer, which is fermented from sorghum, maize, millet and wild fruits or berries. While a local finds it very appealing it may not hold the same charm to a tourist who may prefer imported drinks.
