Emerson Spice Rooftop Restaurant
Emerson Spice Rooftop Restaurant Review
Be sure to book ahead at this charming but small rooftop restaurant, because there's just one seating for dinner at 7pm. Arrive early to enjoy a cocktail and the sunset and then enjoy a degustation menu of exquisite Swahili-inspired cuisine. Each of the five courses has three small portions that have distinct and interesting flavors, such as passion fruit fish ceviche, calamari-stuffed tomato, grilled mango with cardamom, or coconut-chilli fish baked in banana leaf. The menu changes daily and is only posted on a board outside around lunchtime, ensuring that fresh and seasonal ingredients are used. The eponymous Emerson himself is often in attendance to chat to customers about life in Zanzibar. You'll climb lots of steep stairs to get to the top.
