Trip to Mediterranean through 20-in-one meal

 It’s said life is too short and thus, once in a while, you treat yourself to exotic things you indeed can’t afford on a weekly basis.
This was the same idea that ran through my mind when I decided to go for the Mediterranean Night hosted at Sheraton Kampala every Friday.
It’s one of those highly rated weekly nights where people get to travel to almost 20 Mediterranean countries in just a meal.
It’s a fantastic food troll at the Hotel’s Paradise Grill restaurant that usually kicks off at 7pm.
By the time we reach the hotel with a friend, who by the way I have to confess was footing the bill, the serving point had been decorated with different vegan foods, meat, rice pastries and other foods I was generally seeing for the first time.
The night that was premiered about three years back is becoming a big thing and according to Chef Mehmet Demirogullari, one of the brains behind the theme, it is one of the sellout nights always.
He notes the reason for the night was to open Ugandans to a wide range of cuisines and cultures around the Mediterranean region.
As they say, the best way to learn about a culture is through their foods, I couldn’t wait to delve into the outlined dishes.
They are foods like couscous, a traditional Berber dish of semolina which is cooked by steaming, it is a staple food throughout the North African cuisines of Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Mauritania and Libya and as well as some parts of the middle East.

The experience comes at a tune of shs70,000/= thus it’s not one of those places to come with a girlfriend whose appetite is always on mood swings – that would be a loss.
Mehmet, is there to help when am trying to figure out what I should eat, which over the time I’ve been travelling I got to realize is a good thing. If you can’t choose from the many foods you’re basically looking at for the first time, you take the chef’s recommendation, they are usually spot on.
To cup all things up is the City Blend band who am told are always on location to entertain people around with famous covers both local and international songs.
It could have been a perfect night if the skies didn’t just decide to open up sending all guests to the opposite direction, but it was still worth it – even when I didn’t dig it from my wallet.
