We had a Monday lunch in this hotel. It was really good. A buffet salad to start. Then soup (choice of two). A main course (choice of 3-4) and then dessert. Coffee was included as well.
But here’s the rub - 27,000 Tsh. With a bottle of water, my share was 35,000.
The setting is wonderful. A colonial style building in lovely grounds overlooking Lake Duluti.
Great if you don’t mind paying.
Favorite Dish: The pork medallions.
Located near the main round about on Sokoine Rd, the Patisserie sells lots of food items and has Internet at an ok price. Food items appear to be baked on site with a large kitchen out the back of the shop preparing fresh goods for sale.
It's a clean place in the middle of a rather dirty city and also has toilets if you need a pit stop. The shop also has plenty of bottled water for sale.
An auto spares shop that at night is converted into a restaurant that serves grilled meat (chicken tika, beef, mishikaki, sheesh kebab, mutton), freshly baked bread (and nan), tasteful sauces and good salads.
Great atmosphere: the restaurant is loved by the locals, who gather there every evening, solo you'll not feel as being in a tourist trap.
No alcohol served.
Favorite Dish: Sheesh kebab accompanied by nan bread
The place to meet other travelers in Arusha, Mac's Patisserie is a bakery, restaurant and internetcafe.
The internet connection is fast and cheap (but can't remember how much exactly) and the food is very tasty, but unlike the internet it isn't fast... expect to wait 45 minutes.
Favorite Dish: I tried the 'Haabiz Leeza' that's chicken, yoghurt, cheese and rice. My boyfriend tried 'Karrai Chicken' with coriander and ginger. Both were very good.
