As one of the most popular modern hotels in Cairo, The Semiramis InterContinental Cairo is home to some of the best fine-dining restaurants in Egypt's capital. From Thai at Birdcage, to Italian at Pane Vino, to Lebanese at Sabaya, there's certainly no shortage in options; but it's a different restaurant that has been in the headlines recently: The Grill Restaurant & Lounge.
Under the direction of Executive Chef Joachim Textor, The Grill's kitchen has been putting together some truly unique gastronomical creations, many of which were out on show at a special Wine & Dine event that saw the acclaimed chef present an exclusive five course degustation dinner, which was, of course, expertly paired up with a selection of fine wines.
The Wine & Dine events have become a staple at the Semiramis InterContinental Cairo, opening discerning Cairenes to some one-of-a-kind dining experience and there's more to come as soon as this November.
On Thursday 24th Textor is dipping into his treasure chest of recipes for another master-class of dining and if October's event was anything to go by, the city's foodies are in for a culinary treat of the highest order. The good folk at the Semiramis gave us a sneak peek at the November menu and we can't wait. How does a hearty New England clam and scallop chowder sound? Or how about basted Australian saltbush lamb? A dessert fan? Then the deep-fried ice cream with chestnut puree should do the trick.
We could keep going, but instead, we're just going to leave the hotel's number here and let you do the rest: 02-2798-8000.
