Profile Last Updated: February 13, 2009
Meat is the centrepiece of East African cuisine, albeit the more exotic animals consumed there are left off the menu at Simba’s. Here you’ll enjoy beef, chicken , lamb and seafood, with spicy flavours that integrate the diverse foreign cultures that have traded with or invaded East Africa over the centuries. Arab, Indian, Malay, Portuguese and Dutch traditions are all apparent, and portions are substantial. Dig into a whole deep fried Cornish Game Hen in spicy “Pili Pili” sauce, or “Prawns Pili Pili”, featuring eight plump, barbecued and skewered jumbo prawns. Fish cooked in coconut curry is served with African maize meal. The journey continues with dessert, including mango ice cream and cheesecake served with mango sauce, pistachios and almonds. Simba’s also specializes in unique East African cocktails designed to complement the food. It’s one of the few places in town where you’ll find Tusker beer, which has been brewed in Kenya since 1922 and has won several international awards.
