There’s a growing culinary culture around Kenya and Nairobi is seeing more uptake. Nowadays it’s not just about food but eating it in a nice *Instagrammable* and comfortable place is becoming important.
I’ve been trying to break the trend of only eating at fast food joints. I know what you’re thinking so let me dispell those fears ASAP; I don’t take my first time dates to fast food joints. Maybe after the second one 🙂
I reached out to two Kenyan food bloggers who’ve earned their badges in the blogging space and I asked them the coolest places to have meals at and why they prefer them.
She said, “I highly recommend Movenpick. The Chinese Marketplace in Hurlingham has the best noodles at the most affordable price. The restaurants there are tiny spaces that specialize in different foods. Another place is Fraiche in Valley Arcade. It is a hidden gem with the best fast food which *almost* tastes like a home cooked meal.”

2. A Foodies Collective
She said, “One of my fave food joint at the moment is Mugg and Bean. Their drinks, egg bowls and mac and cheese are really good. Another place is Kilimanjaro which offers great value for money. Sierra is very consistent and they maintain high standards.”

1) Movenpick in Westlands
2) The Chinese Marketplace in Hurlingham
3) Fraiche in Valley Arcade
4) Mugg and Bean
5) Kilimanjaro in Nairobi
6) Sierra restaurants within Nairobi
What do you think? Where do you go for dates and fighting a rumbling stomach?
