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!).
