Kenyan cuisine

Last week, we went to the Masai Lodge restaurant near ANU. It was buffet style. Here’s what my plate looked like:


The chicken was tasty, as were the chips (French fries). What resembles brown tortillas are actually chapatis, an Indian favorite. (There are many of Indian heritage who live in Kenya). Next to the chicken is Sukuma wiki (literally, “push the week”), similar to collard greens. When money is running out for heartier fare, greens it is!

Tucked away at the back of the plate are green potatoes mixed with peas. This is a Kikuyu staple known as Mukimo. If you’re adventurous, you can try your hand at making your own by clicking here for a recipe.
