Kilimandjaro

This was the first time that I tried African food and this place definitely did not disappoint. I guess you can say African food is similar to Middle Eastern and South Asian food in that the emphasis is placed on spices and seasonings of the actual foods, unlike American or Chinese food where the emphasis is placed more on the sauces that go on top. The sweet plantains were to die for, the lamb chops were seasoned extremely well but the meat itself was tough and not very good (but that’s not the restaurants fault), but the best thing I got was definitely the fried rice. Best fried rice I’ve ever had in my life. The jasmine rice was marinated with various different spices and cooked for 4-6 hours, according to the chef. Excellent flavoring and even has a small kick of spiciness at the end. 2 thumbs up for Kilimandjaro!
