Restaurant Review: Baluba @ Mövenpick Hotel & Residences

I never turn down an All-You-Can-Eat buffet. Like never. I don’t care if I’m on one of my spastic diets or if I’ve just had lunch, I still never say no! So when an invitation came in to review the AYCE (“All-You-Can-Eat”, yes, I made an abbreviation for it since I love them so much) buffet at Baluba restaurant at the newly opened Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Nairobi in Westlands, I quickly responded back with a resounding YES!

Restaurant Review: Pango Gourmet Brasserie & Rutini Wines

I was one of those people who would drink wine just because everyone else around me was drinking it, not really considering the taste and flavor profile, and I would mainly stick to white and rose wines as red wines would give me a headache. Yeah, one of THOSE people.

Restaurant Review: Urban Eatery High Tea

Calling all high tea lovers! Have you seen this crazy influx of high teas in Nairobi?? From expensive ones, to simple ones, to boozy ones and themed ones – there seems to be a high tea to tickle any fancy. I recently tried new one that’s just been launched at the Urban Eatery and is going to be available every Saturday afternoon (12 pm to 6 pm)…

Delivery/Foodie Review: Elekea O’Bao

How many of you know the benefits of Baobab? That’s right, you know that big tree that looks like those creepy trees you always see in horror movies, looming up into the night sky with a trunk as big as a house?!

Restaurant Review: An Eagles Valentines @ Ole Sereni

Disclaimer: This meal was comped by Ole Sereni. It’s been a while since Valentine’s Day, and a while since I’ve been meaning to post this!… what were your plans this year? Did you take your other half out on the town for a special night, or perhaps cook a fancy dinner at home? Did you…

Foodie Event: Arbor Festival

Disclaimer: The Arbor invited me to this festival and comped food and drinks. So, the Arbor is at it again – you know how much I love that dinky little place with it’s cute swing, endless trees and grassy knolls. I wrote a piece about their last festival at Christmas where they had a bunch…

Restaurant Review: Pan Asian Yao, New Menu

Pan Asian Yao has recently launched a new menu and invited me (along with a few of my guests), to a fantastic 7 course meal which had as rolling out of the restaurant, full up, fit to burst – but very happily satisfied.

Restaurant Review: Fonda @ Rosslyn Riviera

So, I’m definitely adding Fonda to my list of best restaurants in Nairobi that must, must be frequented on a regular basis. Seriously, I’m not kidding! Fonda is gooooood.

Restaurant Review: Sierra & Vergelegen Wines

Vergelegen wines are produced on the Vergelegen estate in South Africa and were founded in 1700 (a reasonable amount of time to perfect their craft!). Sierra Burger & Wine, which I’ve talked about before here, partnered up with this distributor to craft a very special four course menu featuring a host of gorgeous local fare (with a…

Restaurant Review: The Grand Cafe

The Grand Cafe lies unassumingly on the 1st floor of Lenana Towers, on Lenana Road, Hurlingham. The building itself is quite grand, but the entrance, unless you’ve been there before, is a little confusing. Luckily, there’s a large sign sprouting forth with Grand Cafe written in bold type so you probably wouldn’t miss it. The…
