Let’s start with a place that really surprised me😃

📍The Daily Cafe Bistro - Hurlingham

Just to note - they only have brunch at their hurlingham branch and not their Gigiri branch. I was also surprised to find out their hurlingham branch is in Doctor’s Plaza... #nairobieats Image
It’s a really cute spot, their decor is A1👌🏾 They have quite an extensive menu, with breakfast all day! I had waffles and a side of bacon, which came with some fruit & way too little whipped cream…(America spoiled me clearly lol, why was it just a drop of cream??🥲) #nairobieats Image
I liked my meal but would have liked a better serving of whipped cream.

@AbigailArunga had the King breakfast that was a full plate of mushrooms, an omelette, baked beans, sausage, bacon, buttermilk pancakes… I’ve probably forgotten something because it was a lot of items😅 ImageImage

Last review of the day:)

📍Hero Restaurant - Trademark Hotel, Village Market

I’ve been to Hero a couple of times between last year & this year & always had a fantastic time there😃 #nairobieats
The food was great, the service was on point and the place just has great vibes! I had prawn tempura (quite large ones) which I feel had way too much batter tempura wise but all in all a good fleshy prawn on the inside… #nairobieats
I also had some very soft, flavourful lamb chops that was paired with a tangy sauce and some fries:) I know it’s a sushi place but I don’t eat sushi so didn’t try any but @KipronoLeting did and he absolutely loved it👌🏾 #nairobieats

Let’s do brunch first:

📍Mode Cafe - Kilimani

This place is pretty new, possibly 2 months old? They went really simple on decor: muted tones & an open plan space which makes it seem bigger than it is, there’s some outside seating but majority is indoors. #nairobieats
The menu is quite limited, which may concern some but for what they offer I think the menu fits. We had some coffees, the Chicken and Waffle (950/), Shakshuka (1200/), Apple Crumble French toast (900/) and Prawn tempura (1300/) #nairobieats
The chicken & waffle comes with scrambled eggs on top, I don’t eat eggs so had that substituted with mushrooms. I enjoyed this a lot mostly because of the combination of flavours (sweet + savoury is always my jam), the fried chicken was delicious! #nairobieats

Since we’re on that fine dining tip, lemme end this review session with one more fine dining restaurant🙃

📍Botanica - One Africa Place, Westlands

For those who don’t know, Botanica took over from Honey & dough which we can all agree was really disappointing. #nairobieats
They rebranded and I feel like they’re going for a more gastro/fine dining route & it’s working for them from the experience we had.

They have quite a vibrant menu, I had the chicken curry bao buns as a starter while my lovely date @DushyKuria had the duck breast carpaccio
For mains I had the fish & chips, she had the Nasi Goreng & for dessert, they made her a special not for carrot cake plate for her birthday while I had the Latte sundae:) #nairobieats

Review #3

📍Fifteen Rooftop - Mbsa Rd

Been here a few times, & the fact that I keep going back means I must like it 😁 I really love their lemon pasta! I’m not a pasta person usually but this particular dish… I’m happy to have over & over again. I added prawns😋 #nairobieats
My friend had the grilled salmon, accompanied with baby potatoes and some vegetables:) We also tried the fried chicken bites for starters and their truffle fries that are quite addictive (but also cost 400/ so… order it once lol) #nairobieats
Then @jaytakeapic mentioned their butter milk chicken one time and I immediately had to try it, let me tell you Maina…😮‍💨 That dish is the bees knees🤤 So so good! Probably that’s what sold the most at @_wangwe’s bday because it’s just so yum! #nairobieats

Okay, review #2

📍Beit é Selam - Westlands, behind the 9 west building.

Had heard such mixed reviews of this restaurant but nilienda kujaribu still & it’s quickly become a place I love😊

#nairobieats Image
Beautiful beautiful place. It’s not been fitted to be IG aesthetic, it’s a restaurant that’s been outfitted to give off an almost exotic ambience, really feels like you’re in a whole different place when you enter there. #nairobieats
Very Swahili/Arab theme decor and the courtyard is so softly lit giving cozy vibes😊 I highly recommend this for a date night location👌🏾 #nairobieats
