Lord Erroll Restaurant in Runda, Nairobi has come in second at a ranking by CNN of hot global restaurants in 2018.
The Lord Erroll is a colonial era eatery that was established in memory of Josslyn Hay- Earl of Erroll- who came to Kenya in 1924 was mysteriously executed in 1941 after he became the Military Secretary of Kenya.
The list curated restaurants from all over the world including Hong Kong, Europe and New York.
CNN Travel had a ranking of 14 hotels where diners got recommendations on the best dinner experiences in the world.
Coming in at no. 1 was Hong Kong’s La Rambla while no. 14 was Dubai’s Galvin Dubai.
Kenya’s Lord Erroll appears an impressive second and is described by reviewer Chris Dwyer as “beautiful colonial-era house set in expansive gardens with lakes is in the most exclusive neighborhood of Nairobi.”
The writer recommends Chef Isaac Arunga’s rack of lamb, Italian-influenced eggplant and shamelessly old-school desserts like bread and butter pudding or crêpe suzette for diners who want arguably the best meals of their lives.
