6. Nyama Choma

With a few exceptions, African cuisine is a euphemism for charred flesh. Nyama choma, meaning "barbecued meat" in Kiswahili, is Kenya's unofficial national dish. The aptly named, open-air Carnivore, tel: (254-20) 605 933, is one of the better places in town and serves up such exotica as crocodile, ostrich and camel. A set meal costs about $20 and the waiters keep serving more until you tip over the little white flag on your table.
