NRW2015 @ Adega

Camera Uploads7

My Take: So finally I get around to writing this post. Adega was my first stop for this year’s Nairobi Restaurant Week, well, thats not entirely true, I went to Talisman and Tamambo Blixen only to find that they were fully booked for the weekend :(. On the bright side though, I’ve  finally learnt to make reservations, the element of surprise doesn’t really work great when it comes to restaurant. Now, on to Adega, the restaurant has really good ambience, they have a nice outdoor area that gives you a view of the suburban surrounding. For those of you who have kids, you’ll love the kids’ corner/play pen (whatever they are called). The service was good, can’t complain…the portions were generous as you can tell from the pics, and the food was delicious too – only one problem though, for a Portuguese restaurant, the food is not very Portuguese-y, I did not get a hint of any foreign flavours. I’d visit Adega again it was a good experience.

My Take: Le Palanka was simply exceptional, the service was great and our waiter was courteous and professional. We were welcomed from the entrance and ushered to our table, the waiter recommended the Braised Chicken which was well done with just the right spices. After the meal the Chef came round to find out if we had enjoyed the meal – yes, its one of those places! Le Palanka specializes in food from all over the African continent, if you have curious taste buds like I do, I definitely recommend this place

Mezze for two @ Cedars Lebanese Restaurant

My Take: Cedars is one of the restaurant with the most positive reviews I have seen so far, and I agree, they deserve those reviews, the service was excellent, the waiters were friendly and we felt at home. The Mezze for two is a combination of cold and warm Lebanese dishes. Some dishes were just too foreign for my taste but the one’s that made sense to my tongue were really good.
