When Ethiopian and Eritrean food is mentioned in Nairobi, Habesha restaurant is the first to come to mind. Most visitors who go to Habesha crave for their savory Injera meals. The meal consists of a soft edible sheet of fermented rice with vegetables, meat and legumes on it. It is eaten with the hands and is a favourite delicacy for many. Habesha is also very affordable. In the recent Inaugural Taste Awards, Habesha was voted for best Value for Money Restaurant. Those who would like to taste the Ethiopian coffee, Bunna (boo-na), will find Habesha the right place to do so. The restaurant 's visual presentation is also replete with Ethiopian culture.
If there is an eat-out joint that defined Kenya's food culture, it is Amaica. Amaica is borrowed from the western Kenya tribe of the Luhya. The word means 'the cooking stones'. African culture is known for placing three stones in a triangular position and using them as a stand for the casserole (usually a clay pot) as the cooking fire combusted underneath. This is still practiced. Amaica serves at least two meals from every region of the country. Their best cooks are experts sourced from the traditional African villages. Their food is the most natural you will find in the city. They rarely use manufactured spices to flavor their food. Their food's exquisite taste comes from naturally grown herbs and spices. The prices are mid-range.
