Umutsima (a dish of cassava and corn), isombe (cassava leaves with eggplant and spinach) and mizuzu (fried plantains) are common dishes. Dinner is the heaviest meal. Between meals, Rwandans often snack on fruits. Tropical fruits such as avocados, bananas, mangos and papaya are abundant in Rwanda. Roadside vendors in urban areas sell roasted corn and barbecued meat. Food My Favourite Part The Rwandan People eat food made from locally grown ingredients. They eat dishes consist mainly of sweet potatoes, beans, corn, peas, millet and fruit. Breakfast is usually porridge or bread with tea (with lots of milk and sugar). Lunch and dinner usually involve beans, bananas, sweet potatoes or cassava. Popular dishes are Umutsima (a dish made from cassava and corn), Isombe (cassava leaves with eggplant and spinach) and Mizuzu (fried plantains).

Like in almost any country, Rwandans (particularly Rwandan men) love beer. They have a large commercial brewery and make beer and other alcohols at home. And example is Ikigage, a locally made alcohol. Women in Rwanda rarely drink alcohol.
Rwandans who live in rural ares rarely eat meat, maybe only once or twice a month, because of this many children suffer from protein deficiency. Rwandans in rural areas have better access to meat so it's eaten more often. Commonly eaten meats are beef, chicken and fish for those who live near the water). Rwandais aiment leur nourriture. Places to Stay Rural houses in Rwanda are fairly small (one main room and one or two other rooms) and are made of wood or mudd bricks. Because 80% of Rwandas population live in rural areas most rwandans live in wood or brick houses. In urban areas housing ranges from disorganized squatter areas to North-Amerian style housing. Most people in large cities rent.
