While on our last adventure, we came across one restaurant in particular that gave us more than just your everyday breakfast buffet. Located in the Animal Kingdom Lodge, Boma – Flavors of Africa is a unique restaurant with an African flair that keeps customers coming back for more than seconds.

Located downstairs in the beautiful atmosphere of the hotel, you can already tell that Boma is something special when you walk in. The walls and ceilings are decorated with beautiful paintings and sculptures that really do provide an African feel to your meal. When you’re seated, you’re offered standard breakfast beverage fare, but you also have the opportunity to try authentic Kenyan coffee, or the refreshing house juice made of guava, passion fruit, and mango that is unique to Boma.

When you walk up to the numerous buffet tables that stretch across the back of the restaurant, you’ll notice something that this is no ordinary buffet. Though Boma does offer different cereals, pastries, breakfast meats, eggs, potatoes, and other usual breakfast foods, Boma’s African flair makes the offered foods very unique. You can try dishes such as Scrambled Eggs with Goat Cheese, Quinoa with special African Seasoning, and many other dishes you couldn’t try anywhere else. One popular dish is the Corn Beef Bobotie, an African-inspired quiche dish that has a kick to it. To top it off, you can even add made-to-order omelets and freshly carved meats to your plate, or should I say, plates.

There are so many different options and combinations of food to try, and you’ll definitely be eating for a while. As you eat, the ambiance of the restaurant is kicked up a notch when dancers in African garb will parade around the tables, playing African drums to liven the restaurant. Your meal becomes more than just a meal, it becomes an experience! Though we only got to experience breakfast, we are confident that Boma provides the same  African twist on its lunch and dinner buffets too!
