Quick Eats: Ocean Basket || May 14, 2015 1:00PM

There were a few Ocean Basket pamphlets floating around the office on Thursday morning displaying some seriously delectable looking seafood. For those who don’t know, Ocean Basket, a South African restaurant chain, was all the rave late last year when the first branch opened in Kenya. Ocean Basket serves seafood in […]

Quick Eats — Zucchini || May 6, 2015 1:30PM

Spontaneity, it’s what makes life fun and occasionally makes for irresponsible decisions. I swear sometimes the thought “that’s for future Soni to worry about” crosses my mind. Usually, it’s somewhere after “sure, I’ll go out tonight” and before “shots shots shots!”. It’s the same spontaneity that assured me it was a good idea to get my eyebrows threaded over my lunch break.

About Thyme || Feb. 3, 2015 7:30PM

About Thyme and I have a special relationship and here’s why:

I first visited About Thyme when I was 16 years old with my family. It was this little unknown restaurant that we’d never been to but decided to give it a shot for my birthday dinner. My mother, father, brother and I ventured out of our comfort zone (Furusato) for this special occasion. My father in particular is an advocate for trying new things and I begrudgingly (in all my teenage angst) went with it.

Jiko || Jan. 25, 2015 7:30PM

January 25th was a good food day for me… At least so I thought. I went to Art Cafe for brunch and went to Jiko for dinner with my dad. My dad hadn’t tried out Nairobi Restaurant Week (NRW) yet and neither of us had been to Jiko so we were eager to try it out. I had high expectations for Jiko as it is a part of Tribe Hotel. Tribe is a high-end hotel that’s no stranger to big name politicians and celebrities such as Russell Peters and Akon. I imagined Jiko would be equally high-end in food, service, and overall experience.

Artcaffe Junction || Jan. 25, 2015 1:00PM

Brunch is life. Seriously. If you haven’t brunched, you haven’t lived. Brunch sits at a perfect time of day to accommodate laid-back weekend plans or get day drunk and avoid the Monday morning hangover. To me, it’s a great way to cap off any weekend. My friends and family know I love brunch, perhaps that explains their surprise when I told them I had never tried Artcaffe’s breakfast menu. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been to Artcaffe plenty of times. Especially Artcaffe at The Oval (I love that place!) it’s great for food, coffee, or a quick drink with coworkers after a long day. Artcaffe has consistently good food and is also (in my opinion) good value for money. So naturally, when my friends insisted I try out the Artcaffe breakfast, I had high hopes. <a href="”> Read More…
