Kitimoto is a Tanzanian national treasure, easily missed and rarely covered in the guide books. You probably need someone local to introduce you to the concept, as its found at small kitchens attached to local outdoor bars.  Vegetarians should look away now. On paper – it should be disgusting but its really delicious. They chop pork into bite sized pieces (some lean, some very fatty) then deep fry it in pork fat. Serve with deep fried banana/plantain, chopped chillies and salt on the side and a cachumbari salad of onions, tomatoes and cucumber. Ideally order in advance – say half an hour or so, by the kilo – say half a kilo per person. Yummy.
