Happy Friday everyone!! How happy are you that it is Friday? Oh what a day to be alive. In all fairness any day you are alive is a great day but Friday is just special. What goes best with a Friday? We think Nyama Choma in Nairobi does.
A while back we came up with a few things we think makes Nairobi unique. Among them was Nyama Choma. We should note that Nyama choma is not just a Nairobian thing but a Kenyan thing. If you are Kenyan, you’ve had Nyama Choma and if you are visiting you’ve been told to try Nyama Choma in Nairobi. It is part of the Kenyan culture, ranking high as a favorite Kenyan food. If by some strange reason you haven’t tried it, you are missing out. Trust us. For the unlucky ones who do not know what Nyama choma is, it is grilled meat. It’s popularly eaten with ugali (corn meal), although it can be eaten with pretty much anything. (Try with fries, it is yummy!).
Since Kenyans love Nyama Choma almost as much as they love Friday, we’ve decided to bring those two together. The only way the end of the week could be any better is if you celebrated it with Nyama Choma. It’s a match made in heaven, well in the kitchen. We are suggesting a couple of restaurants and hotels where you can find Nyama Choma in Nairobi.
Along Milimani Road is a paradise, a nyama choma paradise. Sagret Hotel is famous for their meat and is definitely among the best places to have Nyama Choma in Nairobi. They have mutton and chicken served with ugali, rice, fries, chapatti or even veggies.
The hotel, which is juts ten minutes away from the CBD is usually filled especially on Fridays, with patrons hoping to indulge in their delicious nyama choma. Lucky for you, they have plenty of space and parking is never a problem. You can save yourself the trouble of getting a table by making a reservation early enough. Get their contact information and details on their profile on Yululate.
You know what would be great? An unobstructed view of the beautiful Nairobi skyline, some mouthwatering nyama choma and some friends. Well, Herisquare can help with at least two of those.

Come to think of it they can also help you with the friends’ situation seeing as hundreds of people (potential friends) visit the establishment.

At the corner of Mtama Road and 5th Parklands near the Aga Khan Sports Centre, is Legends Restaurant and that, ladies and gentlemen is where you should be on a Friday. Their nyama choma cuisines are legendary, living up to their restaurant name. We have their food menu on our website so have a look and decide what you’ll have.
