Helloooo foodies! Being spoiled for choice on a 10-day feast doesn’t even get close to the heart of the matter.
With Nairobi quickly becoming a foodie’s paradise, the city’s biggest culinary event of the year, Nairobi Restaurant Week is back with a bang! This 3rd edition promises to be even bigger and better.
#NRW2016 is a culinary promo week celebrating fine dining at restaurants in the heart of the city & its outskirts at an affordable price. In these exclusively yumm’ days (Jan 28th – Feb 7th), tickle your taste buds on menus from 1,500sh – 2,500sh on special 3-course meals & 2-course lunch menus from 1,000sh – 1800sh (all tax inclusive).
This year, NRW features 61 of the city’s best culinary spots including some of our favourites like Larder, Jiko, Urban Gourmet, Urban Eatery etc. To some good news for the wine lovers, #NRW2016 has teamed up with South African signature winemaker, Nederburg to offer tasting menus with special offers on selected Nederburg wines. Uber, is also offering complimentary rides to patrons during the week to various participating restaurants.
Restaurant Week is an annual tradition on the culinary calendar globally and is all about fine dining at the best for less within a given period. This is a week for food lovers, couples looking for a reason to go out, or even family hangouts and trials on culinary experiences that always seem expensive.
Currently, Restaurant Week is cultured in the world’s major cities like New York, Amsterdam, Cape Town, Frankfurt, Beijing, Italy & Hong Kong, with Nairobi having recently joined this foodie bandwagon in 2014 after resounding success.
“Nairobi is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Africa and this is the most visible in our ever growing, diverse culinary scene. #NRW2016 therefore aims to celebrate the very best of food and drink in our city,” said Michelle Slater, EatOut General Manager.
Massive shout outs to Eat Out Kenya for hosting this week & to the following sponsors as well for making Nairobi worth-a-dine: Amarula, The Wine Shop, CFC Stanbic, San Pellegrino, SHK Consulting, The Star Newspaper, Moyo Holidays, UP Magazine, Wrigley, Uber and Yummy Magazine.
