South African braai and shisa nyama

share
Shisa nyama is a Zulu word - literally meaning 'burn meat' - used to describe a popular 'buy-and-braai' style of venue found across South Africa. At a shisa nyama, you choose your own meat from the butchery and then have it barbecued to your exact specifications. Many township shisa nyama, such as Soweto's legendary Chaf Pozi, create a weekend party atmosphere with DJs and bars, while others such as Maboneng's Sharp Braai cater to the urban workforce, looking for quick and easy street-side food on their lunch break.
