NEW RESTAURANT IN
THE HEART OF MKOMANI
- - The Hunters Bar in Ambalal house had long been a famous
landmark on the Mombasa gourmet’s map, writes NOSHER.
|Now nestled in the
heart of Mkomani, Heinz Riegger has opened Hunters Steak House for
lunch and evening dining - closed on Tuesdays.
The restaurant has a
rather attractive Mediterranean style with a bar and tables arranged
around a well-manicured court-yard and a very spacious air
conditioned seating area inside.
The menu is large and
appealing and whilst being a delight to the committed carnivore,
also amply caters for lovers of seafood.

Heinz Riegger at his new
'Hunters Steak House'.
Our party of four
enjoyed Howard Hughes-like exclusivity in having the restaurant to
ourselves for much of the evening, which was a great shame as the
food was superb.
We started with beef
carpacchio, rich French onion soup, mushrooms in a creamy sauce on
toast and asparagus spears with a salad.
The first three were
all declared to be excellent whilst the asparagus spears scored nil
point when it became evident they were out of a tin.
OF US COULD RESIST THE BEEF ...
Unforgivable ! For the
main course, none of us could resist the famous Hunters beef.
At a time when Europe
is in the grip of all kinds of meat related paranoia it is a joy to
be able to tuck into a really good steak.
Two of us shared a
chateaubriand with a mushroom sauce garnish, which was pre-pared to
perfection and melted in the mouth. Our guests variously tried the
massive T-bone and the smaller filet.
All lip smackingly
good and accompanied by crisp French fries and a better than average
dressed mixed salad.
All this was washed
down with a reasonably priced Chilean Red from a good wine list and
rounded off with coffee and cassata for all.
This is a great new
restaurant, which deserves your support.
Dinner for four with
two bottles of wine and pre-dinner drinks cost a shade under Shs.
2000 per head.
Go there now, make
some noise and create an atmosphere !
Incidentally as a bit
of a connoisseur of “restrooms” I can say that Hunters Steak
House in Mkomani has five star facilities. Go see !
