Waiter at Tea House Restaurant, Emerson on Hurumzi - dinner in Stone Town before visiting Matemwe Hotels

Hehehe…yes, I had to go again (said in reference to this picture below) for the Swahili dinner at the Tea House restaurant on top of the Emerson on Hurumzi hotel in Stone Town, Zanzibar.

What was for dinner?

Goat with okra, a delicious fish cooked in banana leaves and preserved lime, pilau rice, breadfruit in coconut, and a delicious vegetarian pulse dish…among other things. Very much like what I had the last time I was there and every much as delicious!

Duhirwe & I, Tea House restaurant

We met 27 years ago in one big dramatic bang and, all these years later, our friendship that has spanned 5 countries on 2 continents feels as simple and as easy as when I was 12. (Yes, 12, perpetually 12. 🤣😁😂) Happy birthday, sister-girl @DuhirweStudio. You age like a fine wine!

I can’t wait for the next time! 😙

Happy birthday to you too, @LilRushe! I hope you are living it up today as hard as your sister is in Zanzibar. 😙😙

Sunset at The Tea House Restaurant Zanzibar

In my post about things to do in Zanzibar, I mention that my favourite place in Stone Town is the rooftop of the Emerson on Hurumzi hotel.

I also mentioned in that post that I had never actually eaten at the Tea House restaurant, which now occupies that space, but I made sure to do that on my last trip there. (Thank you, @RacinesCreations!) The dining experience was as amazing as I thought it would be.

First, there was a stunning sunset to experience before dinner, then it was great food to be enjoyed accompanied by ethereal Taarab live music.

If you are ever in Zanzibar, do not miss doing this! At only $30 per person, this is an experience you will savor for a long time.

Be sure to make reservations beforehand though…the restaurant has very limited seating and reservations are mandatory.
