Kenyan Coffee-barbecued Beef Tenderloin with Sweet Potato and Corn Mealie Pap and Kachumbari Slaw – $6.00
The rub they season these steaks with gives it an odd tinge, but many taste testers raved about this. Like the other dishes here, it’s mildly spicy.
For $6, you can get yourself some steak tips with interesting sides, and that’s worth exploring.
Piri Piri Skewered Shrimp with Citrus-scented Couscous – $6.75
Another spicy dish, but at least this one was milder in the spice department. It was a good portion size, too. We were all surprised by how much large shrimp was on the skewer. For $6.75, you have a small, yet substantial meal.
Tusker Lager (4.2% ABV) – $5.00 (6 oz) & $9.00 (12 oz)
From Kenya Breweries Limited: “Tusker Lager is brewed from 100% African ingredients that are all locally sourced; the barley is from the Savannah and the Maasai Mara, the spring water is from the Aberdare Mountains and all the yeast is developed locally which means that you feel closely connected to the brand’s origins and roots.”
