Ethiopian Food at Kakuma

Some of the best Ethiopian food I have ever had was in Kakuma Refugee Camp. This is one of the largest refugee camps in Kenya- second to Daadab I think (I stand corrected on this). It is home to several nationalities such as Somali, Ethiopia, Uganda, Djibouti, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan and Congo and these…

No more good cake

This is regards to a blog post I made on this previous post. I went back to Valley Coffee Shake and their cakes have gone through a makeover like bad plastic surgery. They are no longer the moist, delicious pastries that they were, they have been replaced by some moisture deprived forms of pastries. The…

Best Red Velvet cake in Nairobi!

It is official, I found the place with the most tasty black forest, blue berry and white forest cake, but I could really care less- thats not my type of cake. But here is the breaking news. For the few who know my epicurious side and understand the sweet-tooth side of it, they know that…

Java Nakuru

Kikopey

This is one of the best nyama choma (roast meat) places ever! And I usually try to pass by for some meat whenever I am travelling on the Nairobi-Nakuru highway. Kikopey is just a couple of kilometers from Nakuru town and it’s one of those roadside- multiple-barbecue joints in one venue commonly found in the…

Barney’s Bar & Restaurant

On the outskirts of Nanyuki town about 20Kms from the Nyeri road route, is a small orange sign with a little plane drawn on it written Barney’s Bar & Restaurant. This is home to the most amazing burgers I have ever had and I always stop by when around Nanyuki.  Barney’s is right next to…
