For the first time, a sitting President of the United States of America will be visiting Kenya. As much as Nairobians are expecting to be inconvenienced, it goes without saying, it is a great deal for Kenya that Obama is coming. What should he expect? Well, for one, his grandmother, Mama Sarah will be preparing a traditional meal for him.
Incase he, his family and their entire security detail have the munchies, we have a few restaurants they can visit!
Just in case he needs a hot cup of coffee and a fresh pastry, Artcaffe is a great place to get it from. Or maybe he might just pop in for their happy hour and share a cocktail or two with the First Lady. Whatever the case, he’s bound to fall in love with Artcaffe!
Does the president want a draught beer? Incase he does (which he will), he should visit Brew Bistro And Lounge. Here he will see how electric the city’s night life is and enjoy their special in house draught beer specially brewed for him during his visit dubbed Obama Brew. May be he could dance to a local tune or two!
There’s this thing about the way Kenyans grill their meat. It is so unique such that nyama choma and beer is an ideal weekend plan for friends and family. He should visit Carnivore Restaurant for a chance to not only feast on grilled beef, or mutton but to also taste game meat such as crocodile, ostrich among others. And since he loves Guinness, he can enjoy some grilled ribs and a cold bottle of Guinness.
After such a tedious schedule, before leaving our beloved country, Obama might need a moment to relax and recharge for the next destination. For total unwinding we suggest a visit to this restaurant set on an indigenous forest. The well manicured lawns, exotic flowers and cool breeze creeping through tall trees will be perfect for a quiet meal with his wife and family. They can sample on Dari’s classic fried tilapia, sukuma wiki puree and crispy arrow root or their decadent desserts such as the mango tart with coconut ice-cream.
Can he dance to some Rhumba? He should visit Mama Oliech Restaurant in Hurlingham for a full Western Kenya cuisine experience and also to test his dancing skills to the live Rhumba and African music played by the live band on Fridays and Saturdays. Dishes such as tilapia, ugali and local vegetables are served at this popular restaurant belonging to the mother of famed Kenyan footballer, Dennis Oliech.
Famous for the tasty Aluru (quails) delicacy, and other traditional Kenyan dishes, this restaurant in Kenya’s capital is a definite must-visit for the president. Not only will he relish authentic Kenyan food, he will also have a taste of the cuisine from his fatherland. They have these famous fish in coconut stew dish that he could try, or fried tilapia that is quite delicious.
