Last month we were lucky enough to sit down and have a conversation with Mohamed Awale, owner of Suave Kenya, at the iconic K1 Klubhouse. The day was cold and breezy but we were placed right in the middle of K1 where Sunday patrons sit and enjoy brunch under the colourful umbrellas. On this day, however, our table was the only one and all around us, K1 was alive with the soothing sounds of reggae as if preparing itself for the bodies that would fill the space later on for their Thursday Reggae night.
We were there for the conversation but we have to admit that the food stole our attention for some time. The first thing placed on the table was a board filled with mukimo croquettes, potato wedges, vegetable samosas and meatballs. The star of the board was definitely mukimo croquettes which fried to crunchy perfection and well seasoned. In fact, if we could have we would have had a second round of them.
This was promptly followed by roast potatoes that were covered in a creamy sauce that paired well with a sizzling dry fry kienyeji chicken. By the end of it all, there was nothing left but clean plates and full bellies. If the pictures alone don’t convince you to try out the BYOB (Build Your Own Board) or other delectable menu items then we don’t know what will. All we know is there is more to K1’s menu than choma and draught beer.
Take a chance on their chicken wings, burgers, ribs, sandwiches and salads. There’s always something for everyone at K1 Klubhouse.
