'The Cooking Place' is simply an English translation of the Swahili 'Jiko,' and the restaurant blends in seamlessly to its Animal Kingdom surroundings. The decor and menu themes delve into imagery and tastes from around the world, with Savannah grasslands on the wall murals and abstract flocks of birds lighting the bluest of ceilings. The food is earthy, with international dishes such as the meaty Bobotie Roll or the safari-inspired Braai Broodjie. Boar and buffalo meat are staples, with Indian seafood and African veggie dishes adding to a memorably dramatic culinary adventure.
