For the second time in a row, Fairmont Norfolk’s Tatu Restaurant in Nairobi, Kenya made the annual list of the 101 Best Hotel Restaurants Around the World, presented by The Daily Meal.
Paying homage to hotel restaurants around the world, the establishments featured on the exclusive list prove to stand out as excellent destinations for memorable meals.
As The Daily Meal explains: “Hotels haven’t always been places connected with great dining options, as costly room service, modest minibar snacks, and a dining room offering a simple menu of mediocre food were for years the only food options available at most hotels. It was only about two decades ago when hotels began to recognize that a good in-house option for dining could be a serious asset; even something that could become a main draw for a steady year-round customer base.”
As the only Kenyan establishment to make the list, Tatu’s contemporary American steakhouse cuisine featuring 21-day dry-aged steaks from Morendat Platinum beef from selected crossbred steers fed exclusively on premium corn, imaginative plating, use of the freshest Kenyan produce and consistent tailored service – proudly represented the burgeoning culinary scene in the country.
Other hotel restaurants in Africa that also made the list include: Livingstone Room at Victoria Falls Hotel (Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe), Signal Restaurant at Cape Grace (Cape Town, South Africa), Le Verger at Le Franschhoek Hotel & Spa (Franschhoek, South Africa), Saffron at Banyan Tree Seychelles (Seychelles), Acquapazza at the Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita (Mauritius), The Moghul Room at Mena House (Giza, Egypt) and Sabaya at Cairo Semiramis (Cairo).
