Created by our team of Chefs at Villa Rosa Kempinski, Crispy Skin Tilapia is our Signature Dish. Tilapia is the main species of fish that is farmed in Kenya.
Crispy Skin Tilapia is a locally inspired dish using the best of ingredients found within the region. Tilapia is mainly found in Lake Victoria, the fish is grilled to perfection keeping the skin side crisp, whilst the other side remains intact and moist. The fish is served on a bed of Ugali mash (a local variation of corn grits) and creamy terere (Amaranths), which compared to other leafy vegetables, has the highest content of micronutrients and is topped with a grilled tiger prawn. Accompaniments include fried matoke (or plantain) and mango slices.
Our signature dish is available at Cafe Villa Rosa, Balcony Bar and can be ordered through room service.
