Staple foods found in the Republic of Togo include plantain, beans, yam, millet and rice. But maize (corn) is the most commonly used of all staples in Togolese cuisine. Fish and seafoods comprise a major source of protein. Additional sources of protein come from “bush meat” – small to medium-sized wild animals – amphibians, birds, mammals and reptiles – which are hunted for consumption.

The people of Togo most often take their meals at home. However, there are plenty of restaurants in urban regions, which are tourist attractions. Most Togolese people, when out and about and hungry, will grab a quick meal at one of the many roadside “food stalls” in the marketplaces.

These roadside food stands will sell prepared favorite Togolese delicious dishes like: groundnut stew, omelets, grilled prawns, brochettes, and corn-on-the-cob.

Togolese cuisine recipes are rich with a variety of sauces and different pâtés. These are prepared from tomato, eggplant, spinach and fish. Combining these pâtés and sauces with an assortment of vegetables and meats are what makes the dishes they prepare so flavorful. And the use of hot chili peppers make many of the dishes very spicy.
