Interesting night market. Try and use local currency as much as possible and compare prices before purchasing anything. Got a few things cheaper later in the night than earlier in the day

Not really crazy about their grilled food, seafood not the freshest. But it is a must try if you are in Stone Town. I particularly liked fresh coconut juice. They scrape the coconut meat for you after you drank all the juice.

Forodhani Park is right on the Indian Ocean and features delicious street foods. Try the grilled meats, seafood, and sugar cane sweetened ginger, limeade. You won't be disappointed.
