Table etiquette

Social customs

When eating a traditional meal in Sierra Leone, you may be expected to share a plate with other guests. Help yourself to food that is closest to you, and place it in front of you on the plate.

You may be offered a spoon, or you may be expected to eat with your hands. Do not use your left hand to eat, as this is considered unclean. Bones should be placed in a small pile next to your plate.
