About Us

Our Story

Swedish Chef Jussi Husa has over the last 25 years created a unique fusion between Nordic, Mediterranean and Swahili cuisines. He believes there are no shortcuts to a well-prepared dish and so many of the ingredients are harvested from our edible garden in Matemwe or otherwise sourced from quality suppliers with a focus on sustainable practices. The menu, as with life, is to be savoured.

After executive Chef stints at Esque Zalu and Zuri, Chef Jussi opened his Mzee Husa restaurant in 2020 at Zanziblue, a highly rated boutique resort in Matemwe, Zan.
