Kenyan Food Rocks the World in Dublin

Kenyan food rocked Dubliners and the rest of the world during African day celebrations held in Dublin on  May 16th 2010.

It was the first time I saw real Kenyan food served by true Kenyans in Kenyan style and enjoyed by all and sundry.

Although the menu was not very diversified, it was pleasing to see typical Kenyan foods on the menu. The fact  the Kenyan staple food and my favourite;Ugali was missing was really inexcusable.

The foods served were:
Pilau  –           € 3       = ~Kshs 300
Mukimo-       € 5       =~Kshs 500
Tandori-        € 4       =~Kshs 400
Mandazi (3) -€ 1       =~Kshs 100
Samosa (2)- € 1.50  = ~Kshs 150
Tea/Coffee – € 0.50 = ~Kshs 50

Pricing
The foods were priced to reflect typical down town prices in Dublin. I felt they were slightly selling them cheaply. The cheapest meal in any cheap down town restaurant is at least  Kshs. 1000

Drinks.
I do not drink any alcoholic drinks, but it was refreshing to see authentic Kenyan drink on the menu. Those who are not aware, Tusker is an original Kenyan beer brewed by East African Breweries.
