Thanks Donald! Hopefully your filet (without the mac & cheese) will be better than mine. I think I'll be ordering something else though on my next visit to Jiko...like maybe the short rib. Thanks for reading, canoe86! Yes, I think you are probably right about the new chef regarding the macaroni & cheese. The rest of our food was great, so I'd like to give Jiko another try sometime and order a different entree. I just hope I don't have to wait another 10 years. Linda, you must try either the Malawi Mango Margarita or the Kande Coconut Cooler, or both. Sanaa has some yummy cocktails! Yes, DD definitely made the better choice. She still talks about how good her entree was at Jiko. I hope you get to have tea at the Grand with your mother some day, very soon.
