Posts Tagged ‘Italian food’

The food in Scorpio Villas is mainly Italian except the breakfast

 

Do not come here if you want to loose weight…

Three meals are served here every day – breakfast from 8.00-10.30, lunch from 13.00-15.30 and dinner from 20.00-21.30. In the afternoon the guests can have free tea or coffee and cakes in a special place where they can sit comfortably and before dinner free wine and snacks are served and the guests can sit in very comfortable chairs next to the restaurant, and listen to music because an orchestra plays here every evening.

 

Mr. Simone Mancini is a brilliant chef

I have never eaten such good food as here outside the borders of Italy. Mr. Simone Mancini and his wife Sara are the owners of the place and Mr. Mancini seems to take great interest in the cooking and he is probably a brilliant chef, and he teaches the staff how to cook excellent Italian food and I do not think that any of the chefs here ever has been to Italy so therefore it is quite amazing to come to a restaurant in Kenya and eat such delicious Italian food.

 

Breakfast

The breakfast is abundant with everything you can wish, toasted bread, different kinds of Italian cheese, many kinds of jam, cakes, yoghurt, cereals with milk, porridge, bacon, baked beans and eggs according to your taste, boiled or fried or scrambled. Even pancakes are served and many kinds of fruit and juice. The coffee grows here and is therefore fresh and good.

 

Two buffets daily – pranzo e cena

Lunch and dinner are served as buffets but before you choose from the buffet you are served a starter – “antipasto” – in Italian – and the first plate – “primo piatto” in Italian. “Il primo piatto” is always pasta. There is a choice between two different kinds of pasta. The pasta could be different but it is always made in the kitchen here by some of the chefs, responsible for pasta. Sometimes it is gnocchi made of potatoes and sometimes it is tagliatelle, penne or some other type of pasta, but it is always delicious and fresh and the most important thing cooked “al dente” and the sauces served with the pasta are just fantastic.

 

The menu changes every day

The same dishes are never on the table for both lunch and dinner. The menu is changed every day even now when it is low season here and few guests because of the rains. It is raining every night and sometimes even in daytime.

 

Decent prices for wine

The menu is written in English and Italian and wine is served with the food and the wines are from different countries. I usually have wines from South Africa and it is not even expensive. White wine is always chilled and served by a special waiter who knows about wines. I usually have a wine by the name of Versus from South Africa and a bottle costs about 10 euro or 9 pounds or less than 100 Swedish crowns, about 75 and it is sufficient for two meals and is kept for you by the bar with the number of the bungalow written on the bottle.

 

Main courses – learn some Italian…

Here you can read about the main courses we can choose between in this paradise.

I am using a dinner menu, but the dishes change from day to day so this is just one example which shows what was served one special day of this month of May 2011.

 

Main courses

Piatti di carne – Meat
Arrosto di maiale
Scaloppina al limone
Coscio di agnello al forno
Sminuzzati di vitello al rosmarino
Pollo alla creola
Involtini primavera
Vitello tonnato

Piatti di pesce – Fish

Spiedini di pesce alla griglia
Filetto di white snap gratinato
Frittura di calamari

 

How much can you eat?

All these dishes are waiting for you at a big table and at another table you will find different kinds of salads with many different dressings, olives, olive oil and balsamico, fresh bread is also at the table as well as potatoes, rice and different kinds of vegetables. The starter will probably be a few small dishes like “Uovo al occhio di bue con asparagi”, “involtini de melanzane con prosciutto e patate”, “involtini di pollo” and “insalata creola”. After the antipasto – starter – you have had il primo piatto, which was the pasta and then finally you can ran to the buffet table to check if there is something you like there. It is not easy to choose I can assure you. You have seen what there can be above.

 

Desserts and prices

And finally you have a lot of cakes and tartes at one side of the table and other kinds of desserts which you can eat if you have any space left in your stomach and do not forget the different Italian cheeses and all the tropical fruits and the cup of coffee and the ice cream which is included in this dinner or lunch.

The price is 1200 Ks per person which is more or less 11 euro or 100 Swedish crowns or around 10 pounds. But if you live here during this rainy season and pay for a room and full board the price will be 4000 per day for one person and for half board it is 3500 for one. If you double the prices you will have the price for two of you. And 4000 KS is about 300 Swedish crowns, 32 euro or 30 pounds, but you can check the value of the shilling at the Internet to be sure.
