The Horizon offers the best food on the mountain. But we would say that wouldn’t we? We happen to think it’s true though!

We encourage you to be adventurous with the food. We encourage you to try the regional menu – just ask the staff and they’ll happily prepare and serve you some wonderful regional cuisine cooked the way it’s done for the locals. Some of it can be quite spicy so be sure to let them know if you’re not a fan of chilli, most of the dishes can be adjusted to mild – but if you are a fan of chilli, you’ll love what’s on offer.

The tempeh and tofu (soya bean cake and curd) is prepared simply and tastes great. Have it with greens (picked fresh from the garden) for a light but filling meal.

Local vegetables include spinach, lettuce, snake beans, kangkung (water spinach), potatoes, sweet potatoes, casava, corn and carrots. These are cooked in a variety of ways, all delicious and suitable as an accompaniment or on their own with rice.

Baked chicken with rice is another favourite. Spicy and simple.

The Horizon does have a western menu and you’ll find toasted sandwiches, and other favourites but we strongly recommend sampling the local food – after all it’s what they are best at making.
