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!”
