Having eaten big, buffet meals throughout our Kenyan safari tour, during our night on our own at the Norfolk, we decided to eat lighter, but we wanted to try some game meat. We saw ostrich on the Tatu menu, and made a reservation (not necessary on a Sunday night, as it turned out). We told the staff we would be splitting an appetizer and entrée, which no one had a problem with. First, we were brought an amuse bouche of sesame coated tuna, which my husband loved. We started with a bowl of tomato soup with toasted cheese sandwich. Our waiter brought out two bowls, adding the chef was being "generous" since we were the first customers of the day and save us a bit more than a half bowl each. Not only was this some of the best tomato soup we have had, but the two small wedges each of toasted cheese sandwich made each "half" bowl a meal in it self, especially with the Indian breads and assorted chutneys brought to the table. We shared the ostrich entrée and thought the chef was probably being generous with this serving, also. The traditional Ugali (like firm grits) were heavy on their own, but a nutty note when added to the ostrich, tree tomato sauce and kale to create the perfect bite. Complementary petit fours completed this meal. While expensive by most standards, it was a treat we savored in the sea of touristy buffets.
