My Take: Wifey hooked us up with a complimentary lunch for 2 at the Artisan Restaurant, Sankara! Located at the heart of Westlands, The Sankara hotel is known for it’s class and 5 star service, our experience there confirmed this. The Restaurant is on the ground floor and has a cosy outdoor setting with a somewhat formal atmosphere. I was fascinated by the high quality cutlery, which looked antique-like (almost made away with a spoon or two 👀 ). We had the mutton rogan gosh with naan and Chicken Tikka with Rice, all which was top-notch! The service, as expected, was also excellent. We sadly didn’t get a chance to visit the roof-top bar, which I hear has a exquisite view of Nairobi city, but that’s on my 2017 to-do list.

My Take: Nothing hits the spot like a nice cold frothy beer on a hot sunny afternoon…but when ‘someone’ keeps complaining about your beer belly, you sometimes have to drink juice 😒. If you’ve tried the juices at Java then you know they can sometimes be bitter..ish, tip is to order juice for the fruit in season, or just ask the waiter, otherwise you might be served juice that tastes like battery acid. But you can never go wrong with Pineapple and Mint

My Take: Ugali is considered to be the ultimate Kenyan dish, served with meat and vegetables, some would call it the staple food of Kenyans. One of the best places to enjoy Ugali, especially with fish and traditional vegetables is undoubtedly Ronalo’s restaurant located in the heart of the Nairobi CBD. Its famous for its tasty fish and generous quantities.
