Fare #9 Kampala

Fare aspires to follow connecting stories at the heart of a city's culture.

Each issue of Fare revolves around a single city wherein readers are guided through town by locals: down backstreets, and through forgotten histories, to local institutions and diverse neighborhoods—meeting amazing individuals, and learning more about the local food than just its taste. Our magazine is meant to excite and inspire, but also to introduce the reader to a richly complex city. Instead of a directory or guide to “it” or trendy places, our magazine concludes with a glossary of locally important terms, histories, and figures mentioned throughout the issue.

Each issue of Fare also includes a glossary of local terms, a helpful reference point for readers as they delve into the exoticism of a new culture and city.

In Fare Issue 9: Kampala

Kampala is Uganda's lively capital, a city shaped by the traditions of the ancient Buganda kingdom, British imperialism, and the many new migrant groups that call it home.

This influence is seen throughout Kampala, from resourceful and unique dishes such as luwombo—meat and vegetables steamed in banana leaves, originally made for Buganda royals— the flying grasshopper delicacy Nsenene, or the Rolex, an Indian-inspired street snack.

From the Ggaba beaches to the nonstop nightlife of Kabalagala, our local guides showed us the sights, the sounds, and the "undeniable vibe" of the Kampala they know and love.
