Nairobi Restaurant Week 2017

Ola Muchachos,

So this past week, EatOut organized my best food-related week in the year; Nairobi Resturant Week. This is a week where Nairobians get the opportunity to indulge in all things food from starters to dessert, in the top resturants.

Not only were there 10 new resturants added to the participating list, but the prices were so much cheaper, this year. Lunch was only Ksh 950, while dinner was ksh 1950. So affordable.

Its crazy how I wasnt even sure if i would make it to any resturant considering my schedule, but suprisingly I found time and made it to not one but four resturants. Whoop. 🙂 Come to think of it though, I havnt ever missed out on Nairobi restuarant Week since it was introduced. Last year, I went to at least 5 restaurants. Clearly, food offers never pass me. Lol.

MONDAY 30TH – SECRET GARDEN

This was actually my second time here during Nairobi Restaurant Week; only difference is this time it was hella random. After a meeting in the premises, my two friends (Zippy and Bright) thought it best fit to have lunch as we caught up on a few social matters.

The restaurant had two options for 950; starters and main course as shown below.

Chicken Caesar Salad with Bacon and Garlic Buttered Croutons

TUESDAY 31ST – SIERRA BATISSERIE 

After preparations with my friend (Isaac) to go for lunch in the vicinity of his office that is ngong road/upper hill sides; I was initially meant to go to Raddisson Blu this day, but they didnt have NRW during lunch hour and my next option; Amber Hotel, only had NRW lunch timings up to 2:30pm. So considering I was only available from 3pm for lunch, Sierra was the best choice because their lunch timings were up to 6pm (how considerate of them). And seeing that I had heard about Sierra before but never been, this was my chance to go there.

THURSDAY 2ND – MOSAIC AT ROYAL TULIP HOTEL

This restaurant was at the top of our list when my friend (Tabz) and I saw it on the list of participating resturants. It was definately a must-go and just as we hoped, the resturant filled our expectations. The food, decor and ambiance were thumbs up. For Ksh 950, we had the choice of a starter and main course or a main course and dessert. Have a look of what I choose below.

BBQ Lamp Chops with Corn on the cob & Coleslaw served with Mashed Potatoes

However, after tasting what my friends had to eat for their main course, I did wish I had the chicken instead of the beef fillet as it was abit hard to cut up. I guess thats especially because i love eating other peoples food. Haha. But all in all, the food was still good.

SUNDAY 5TH – BONHOMIE AT CONCORD HOTEL

Saved the best for last; when I say best I mean in terms of value for money. This restaurant really went all out with their NRW offer; for Ksh 950, we were ‘gifted’ with a choice of starters or appetizers, main course and dessert. It doesnt end there, we also got the choice to pick between one out of five cocktails (all shown below)

Olmeca Margarita

Barbequed Chicken Winglet

Herb Crusted Chicken Glazed with Rosemary Jus and Carrot Mash

White and Dark Chocolate Mousse

Coming to think of it, I believe Bonhomie; out of all the participating restaurants; was the most generous with their menu.

I hadnt actually been to Concord before, but I would always pass it when I was near Diamond Plaza especially when it was being built; but with their NRW generosity, I will definately be going back.

Ola Muchachos,

Seeing as there is so much to see and do in Dubai, you can imagine the amount of pictures I took. My phone gallery is filled with pictures primarily just from Dubai; I believe I have over 500 pictures. Therefore, this post is merely a culmination of my best ‘tourist’ pictures that I wanted to share with yall.

P.S: I was staying in Deira, so most of my pictures were taken there apart from the time we went to Bur Dubai (as shown below). 🙂
