First review of the year!

📍The Spring Noshery- @SaritYourCity

The Spring Noshery has been on my list for a while but I don’t frequent Sarit Centre often so never got a chance to visit until just recently. It’s located in the new wing, 2nd floor I believe. #nairobieats They have a wider breakfast menu and a more limited lunch/dinner menu. I wanted to try their crepes (750/) because you don’t find crepes in most restaurants, it’s usually just pancakes. My friend had their signature Belgian waffle (850/) #nairobieats

Talking about a great gem today…

📍Unseen Nairobi - Kilimani

A rooftop cinema, cafe AND bar, Unseen was a fantastic find and it’s become a place I visit often when I need a change of work scenery:) #nairobieats Had a nice little date here with @DushyKuria one time and we really enjoyed the food there. We had the pork bao buns, kimchi grilled cheese sandwich, potato croquettes & Korean fried chicken (my fave!). #nairobieats

So today we are talking about the famous…

📍Red Ginger - Parklands

1st of all, this place is so massive! Feels like a mall that has just the one restaurant lol. And it gets crazy packed - make reservations beforehand if you can. #nairobieats They have an expansive menu filled with traditional Indian dishes, Indian bbq and oriental dishes as well. #nairobieats

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 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

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

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

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

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

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

Let’s start with a newbie:

📍Slate Kitchen & Bar

Upon getting here, the service was the first thing I noted. There’s parking attendants at every point of the parking lot to direct you (it’s kind of confusing finding the entrance so I appreciated the assistance) #nairobieats The hostesses are welcoming and reservations are very necessary - the place gets full quick on Fridays and weekends.

The outfitting my goodness🤩 I love good interior decor & these guys have taken such detail in everything from the furniture to lighting, spacing… #nairobieats
