A little while ago, the worlds best 50 restaurant were announced, and being the eager foodie, I was quick to check if any of our beloved Kenyan restaurants had made the cut. Sad to say, none had made the cut. Not even in the top 100 list. But who cares anyway? We have some pretty awesome restaurants here in Kenya. The rest of the world is just too afraid to admit it.
So which is the best restaurant in the world you ask? El Celler de Can Roca from Girona in Spain nabbed the prestigious award this year. The restaurant is owned by three brothers, Joan Roca, Josep Roca and Jordi Roca. Joan Roca, serves as the head chef, Jordi is the pastry chef and Josep is the head sommelier of the restaurant. The group of brothers have together created the worlds best restaurant. Not an easy task, but a possible one.
Osteria Francescana from Modena, Italy came in second while Noma from Copenhagen, Denmark was third. So which was the best restaurant in Africa? The Test Kitchen from Cape Town, South Africa was the only African restaurant to make the list. It was ranked as the 28th best restaurant in the world. Lets see if any of our Kenyan restaurants will be featured next year!
