A Buzzin’ Little Café

Here’s the thing, I love new restaurants, cafes and bars as much as the next person BUT I know you have to allow them to get settled. I read once that opening a restaurant is probably one of the hardest  ventures for an entrepreneur to take on. A LOT goes into […]

All Day Every (Fri & Satur) Day

What is it about drinking till the early morning hours that makes you so hungry? The dancing? The small talk? The fact that with each passing hour you’re creeping further into breakfast territory and further away from “socially acceptable”? Whatever the case, it can be the best of times and […]

The Cure

Raise your hand if you have ever been personally victimized by gin…. Yeah me too, but I love a good Gin & Tonic, so sue me. I was meeting my Dad for lunch after a night G&Ts and we decided to meet at a place down the road called Burger […]

Hallmark Holidays: Valentine’s Day

Oh the pressure of Hallmark Holidays. Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year, the list is endless. Often it can feel lonely if you don’t conform to the celebratory norm wether you have a significant other or not. If you don’t have a significant other on Valentine’s […]

You Asked For It

And by “you” I mean @confusedconfuser who commented on a blog post I wrote saying she’d live vicariously through my posts about Nairobi Restaurant Week (P.S. if you’re reading now, thanks for reading all the way from Seychelles! 🙂 ). But I also mean “you” in the broader sense… All […]

Sarova Mara Part 2

It’s funny how a little missing feature on the bedroom door spoke volumes about the staff at Sarova Mara Game Camp. As I was leaving my room the second morning, I turned around to lock the door behind me only to find there was no way to do so. I searched […]

To-do: Become a Wine Sommelier

Seriously guys, I’ve decided to quit my job and just dedicate my life to becoming a wine sommelier. First of all, in my glorified version of what the job entails, it’s a lot of fine wine tastings and trips to Italy to stomp on grapes and stuff, right? Secondly, as I […]

Adventures in Sarova Mara Game Camp: Part 1

Soaring through the sky several thousand meters in the air riding in what can only be described as a tin can of a plane, I was overcome by feelings of excitement and terror. The beautiful Kenyan landscape below me changed quickly from residential neighborhoods, to the green Ngong hills, to a savannah […]

Veni, Vidi, Vino: I came, I saw, I wined

Confession: I’ve never been to a wine tasting… Well, not at a venue where wine and food pairing is done. The only wine tasting I’ve done is at a vineyard, which is very different from my experience at  Salt Bar & Grill. Salt offers wine/whiskey and food pairings about once every […]

Treat Yoself Tuesday || Mambo Italia

This past Tuesday, I treated myself to a meal at Mambo Italia at Lavington Curve. As you may know, Mambo Italia recently had a makeover right before Nairobi Restaurant Week. They completely redid their outdoor patio and it’s looking really good! This renovation was just the face lift they needed to make […]
