Aussie Night at the InterContinental

August 18, 2011 – Since the 1970s InterContinental Nairobi has been an oasis of comfort for tourists and business travellers.  For years, the culinary team at InterContinental Nairobi has delighted guests with diverse and global options.

Overlooking the mesmerizing pool, The Terrace Restaurant serves delicious signature dishes from all around the World.  From the savoury flavours of Italy to the rich spices of India to Kenya’s signature Nyama Choma to tasty American Classics to Down Under specialties; The Terrace Restaurant is definitely the gateway to InterContinental’s global brand experience.

Australian BBQ on Tuesdays

BBQ and grilled meats are popular choices for most Kenyans. The Terrace Restaurant’s Tuesday theme, Australian Cuisine, is sure to be a hit with travellers and Nairobians.

So what is Australian cuisine?

Well, with more than 11 million square kilometres of fishing area, the third largest in the World, it’s no surprise that diners can expect a lot of fish and seafood influences.

At The Terrace Restaurant, to begin with, aside from continental options, refreshing starters including seafood mousse and chilled shrimp salad presented in a tomato bowl will remind you of the iconic coastline of Australia.

Perfect to warm you up during this impromptu cold weather, comforting options like Kumara & Shrimp Bisque or Pea Mint Soup will definitely do the trick.

The Australian agriculture sector has grown into a major global producer of beef and lamb.  It goes without saying that these Aussie staples would also be featured at The Terrace Restaurant.

The grilled lamb was definitely Capital Lifestyle’s favourite.  Tender, incredibly juicy and naturally flavourful; I’m sure the Aussies would be proud.

Other Australian favourites such as: Shepherd’s Pie; grilled fish, lamb and steaks with a selection of sauces like Peanut Sauce; just to name a few – are sure to delight your taste buds.

For dessert, a large selection of sweets including cheesecake and pumpkin pie captivate your sweet tooth.  But the star of the evening was definitely the Australian staple, Pavlova.

Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert.  At The Terrace Restaurant, cute Mini Pavlovas filled with the freshest berry sauces definitely will end your meal on a memorable sugary high.

Whether you’re a veteran Australian foodie or a first-timer, as they say Down Under, the Aussie Night at InterContinental will definitely get you telling friends to “take a squizz at this!”

    And you Wako seems lost for words both on and off the script!

    wako was the worst AG kenya ever had. how do GOK contracts get a go ahead without the AG Wako in the know? comeon give us a break and carry your own cross. Wako was in office through the tokyo scandal involving wetangula, goldenberg scandal involving mudavadi, anglo leasing scandal involving mudavadi and obure, grand regency scandal involving kimunya. as the lead counsel for the government, he should take the blame for all this coz he never prosecuted anyone.

    This is the kind of blame game we don’t want. If indeed your name is clean, then come out in public and give us the names of the Kenyan officials involved in this scandal. That’s the only way we will believe you. Otherwise, you die with others in the saga.

    When are Cord going to hold their mass action rallies on Anglo leasing??? They assumed that the entire republic is populated by fools. Next time the likes of Khalwale and Orengo stand at a podium to face the people, please do so with the aim of enlightening and truthfully informing the people. This is the digital age, utter lies and sooner or later you will be found out.

    To natenate and Qwani- For correction-Goldenberg was executed during the late saitoti’s tenure as finance minister. Why not ask why Uhuru is authorising payment now when he is the president but he oppossed it when he was the leader of opposition? Some beneficiary companies in this scandal are well connected individuals in jubilee.

    1. natenate May 21st, 2014 at 10:59 pm

      you are very wrong. during anglo leasing mudavadi was minister of transport and telecommunications. he pushed the deal together with the post master general and the then finance minister chris obure. AG wako as the government lawyer did nothing to stop the deals. 5.6billion was then paid out. wako has been around through all scams goldenberg, grand regency, anglo leasing etc. what has he ever done as an AG except smile!

    2. natenate May 21st, 2014 at 11:00 pm

      and he is paying now the 1.4billion so that he can raise 355billion in euro bonds. no other way out to beat the june deadline.

      1. initia May 22nd, 2014 at 12:54 pm

        Did you say raise? No dude, it’s borrow! Borrowing means paying back with interest rates which will be paid by the tax payer. The 1.4 billion is also being paid by the tax payer. Remember, there is no free lunch

    To Kerbala – Now from Anglo leasing you switch over to Goldenberg!! This just shows the sheer desperation to grab the political limelight at all costs. Are you aware that during the previous government Anglo leasing was paid Kshs4 billion. Orengo was in the cabinet then. Nobody said a thing. Today, a lot of noise is made over Kshs1 billion. Why??? The sole aim is to prevent the Government from initiating the Euro bond to raise the Kshs125 billion. Why?? So that the Government can come to a stand still and projects such as the SG railway line never takes off. Of course we all know who will be sooo happy to see the Government come to a stand still.
