In Summary
  • I'm a sucker for a good brunch. Breakfast is the best meal of the day, but since I'm never awake in time to partake of it, brunch is the next best thing.
  • I don't know why the thought of waffles and calamari in the middle of my morning gives me such a delight, but such are the mysteries of the world we live in.

Wondering where to get the 411 on what's happening in Nairobi's foodie scene? There's a lot of places you could go, but here's where we want you to be – getting the dish on the dish. Get it? We knew you would.

Have you noticed that everything else they have ever made that is supposed to compete with brunch has never really succeeded? Brinner. Linner. Dunch. I mean, really? Lunch and dinner is the same thing, and if it's at six, it's just supper.

PERFECT BRUNCH

On this search of mine, for a perfect brunch, I couldn't help but delve into the inexpensive brunch option at Brew Bistro.

You see the thing is, all of my favourite brunches are rather pricey and can only be attended when payday has just come in, or it's my birthday, and definitely not in January. Brew Bistro's brunch was the perfect alternative.

At a supremely reasonable Sh1500 for an all you can eat buffet till 4 pm, the quality and quantity really couldn't be beat.

HERE’S WHAT I MEAN BY QUANTITY

When I say quantity, I mean everything that you think could ever make a brunch good for an urban crowd, even the music to make you feel like you're at a daytime rave. Attentive waiters, a wide selection of meats, waffle options and toppings, stir fries, desserts, breads, cakes, muffins... you want to go there right now, don't you?

GREAT WHILE IT LASTED
