Rwanda: Caiman Introduces Meat Carnival

IN a bid to rejuvenate its presence in Kigali's social scene, Kibagabaga-based Caiman Bar and Restaurant will today, December 6, introduce the first ever meat festival themed, "Eat till you drop", where guests will be treated to tantalising meat specialties.

Caiman gives an option those who want to enjoy themselves in quiet and serene surroundings.

The upscale hangout will be re-launched with a special Brazilian grill featuring different types of meat prepared in carnival style (full carcass) as guests watch.

Julius Gakuya told The New Times that the new Caiman experience will allow people a chance to see how the food they eat is prepared and assess the hygiene and sanitation with which they prepare it.

There will also be the vegetarian menu for non-meat eaters and several other options.

At the event, different types of meat, from whole roasted goats, pork, chicken to rabbits and beef, will be prepared by a resident special carnival chef from Kenya.

"We will have whole goats, beef ram stick, whole pork suckling roasted live and we think this will provide a unique experience for meat lovers," says Gakuya

The meat will be grilled with Brazilian cuisine ingredients and served on sizzling plates which means that you can eat the last bit of meat when it is still hot.

Patrons will also be served special Caiman cocktails mixed by a resident barman, while a live band will entertain guests to a variety of blues, salsa or rumba rhythms.

Drinks on the menu range from world class liquors and beers to wines and soft drinks.

According to Kanobana Rutembesa, the proprietor of the bar and restaurant, which derives its name from a South American crocodile specie, the event is by invitation only but even those without invitations are free to attend.

The event starts at 6p.m.

A special Caiman cocktail, 'Umuti', will be served along with meat. The cocktail will also be mixed before the clients.

"There will be different options for guests," Kanobana said.
