First Nile Boat Experience by Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at The First Residence
Experience the first ever Four Seasons Culinary Boat at Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at The First Residence.
Dine in the First Nile Boat that is set to be Cairo’s newest trendy culinary and lifestyle location. Located at the widest part of the west banks of the Nile, opposite Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at The First Residence, the First Nile Boat is accessible from the Nile Street via a contemporary, carefully-designed dock area that exudes simplistic luxury.
Enter the boat and be greeted by a perfect blend of textures – light and dark hues of the genuine teak wood floor, modern light fixtures and wall fittings that warmly welcomes you into this uncompromising world that exudes luxury, taste and lifestyle.
Enjoy the best Brazilian ambience and carnivore-based menu in Cairo in Xodó at the First Nile Boat. Situated on the ground floor, Xodó, the Portuguese word for an expression of a feeling of love, will make you feel love as you try Chef Guilherme Reis’s authentic Brazilian menu. With teak wood adorning the floors and walls, Xodó exudes a rich and warm ambience.
Indulge with the best bespoke grilled meat in a churrascaria concept that is infused with traditional Brazilian flavours. Popular appetisers and salads include the bolinha de quejo, a deep fried pastry filled with a blend of mozzarella, blue cheese and chili; paõ de alho grelhado, grilled garlic bread with chicken liver pate; and salata de horta com camaraõ, fajita-marinated prawns, greens, goat cheese crumbles, red onions and caramelised walnuts with raspberry vinaigrette.
From the grill, Chef Reis recommends the linguiça de carne com queijo, Australian veal sausage with cuiabana cheese (for two). Desserts include the South American pudim de leite condensato, the Brazilian home-made condensed milk flan; and the sorvete de frutas tropicais, the home-made tropical passion fruit, guava or sweet corn ice cream. An open mise-en-place will also greet you at the bar area where you can sip on the best signature Brazilian cocktails while enjoying the panoramic view of the Nile.
Walk into Nairu, which translates from Nile in Japanese and be greeted by a richly-coloured, teak-wood doorway and patterned floor that, during the day, perfectly complements the light and airy atmosphere from the guests’ panoramic Nile view. Further immersing into this fascinating region is the colourful street-art hand-painted mural showcasing colourful, rich and storied Asian history and culture.
Offering some of Asia’s most exotic cuisines, Nairu Chef Mohamed Nazlan has carefully selected the best of each region to excite all senses and palates. The restaurant features an eight-seat robatayaki station offering dishes grilled to perfection by Nairu’s chefs as well as a sushi station at the opposite end where the expert and passionate sushi chefs masterfully create some of the most original, vivid and luscious sushi plates in the capital.
Chef Nazlan’s signature dishes include the bao buns, steamed soft buns glazed with soy lemongrass beef short ribs and chili pickles; coconut curry tumeric chicken; crispy calamari with soy garlic coriander sauce; and sagi gula melaka for dessert – chilled tapioca pearl on ice, palm sugar, coconut cream and caramel coconut ice cream.
