Depending on the region, there are also sometimes quite significant differences in the eating and drinking habits throughout the continent's many populations: Central Africa, East Africa, the Horn of Africa, North Africa, Southern Africa and West Africa each have their own distinctive dishes, preparation techniques, and consumption mores. For the more daring diners, Cape Town restaurants offer dishes ranging from crocodile sirloins to fried caterpillars.
