With so many excellent restaurants to choose from in Newtown-they close down or improve quick enough if they're bad-I picked Kilimanjaro because it's the most unusual. It's a tiny place, with very limited seating on two floors. Basically, you enter, choose a dish off the blackboard menu (while standing), and then you are escorted to your seats by one of the waiters. On a recent visit I had couscous, some African bread (similar to an Indian chąpatti), and the Saussougor di guan (tuna in a rich sauce). Another favorite dish is Yassa (chicken in a rich African sauce). All meals are served on traditional wooden plates.
