Supakanja aka Gambian Fish Stew

Supakanja Gambian Fish Stew, is a staple in the African country The Gambia. Supakaja is to The Gambia what chicken soup is to American households in the United States.

Some major African countries cater to tourists with resort areas and serve food such as pepperoni pizza. In Africa, a distinction is made between tourist food and local food just as it is in the United States. In the United States there are tourist eateries and then there are local eateries. The Gambia just like many other African countries covers the gamut when it comes to restaurant food.
