360 Degrees Pizza- Review

Hey guys, today’s post is going to be…a restaurant review.( It’s in the title…don’t know why I did that; just go with it) Today’s restaurant, 360 Degrees Pizza at Rosslyn Riviera. Today was my first time dining at the restaurant and I have to say, I had a wonderful experience. The restaurant had a homely, cozy aura; the staff were the very hospitable, the food scrumptious, not to mention  jazzy tunes filled the air as we enjoyed our meal.

I had an iced tea for my drink and it was beautifully zesty as well as refreshing. My sister had a salted caramel shake of which when she had a sip, couldn’t speak. We asked her how it was and all she let out were sighs and facial reactions trying to express how amazing she found the drink. I’m still laughing about it…😂😂

 

 

For our meals, we got 3 pizzas and I had…Pasta. *gasp* ‘ You went to 360 degrees pizza and didn’t have pizza?’ …yup. I had their new menu item, the bacon and Gorgonzola pasta. It was delicious but  I felt that it could have had less currants. Everyone else shared a pepperoni pizza, spicy lamb and a ham and mushroom pizza which they enjoyed. The favourites were the spicy lamb and pepperoni.

As I mentioned earlier, the staff were so friendly and even posed for a few pictures. Shoutout to the Rosslyn Riviera chefs and waiters today!

 

If you have been following this blog from the start, you would know that I am obsessed with aesthetically pleasing places. Therefore,  I had to take some photos.

Sunday Lunch: Hob House

Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog. If you’re new, Hi! Today’s post is another restaurant review. Today we paid Hob House a visit. If you’re looking for authentic, Lebanese food cooked from the heart, you should need to go to Hob House. The restaurant is owned and run by a lady named Kelly- who is the sweetest person ever- and her husband. The cozy atmosphere accompanied by their scrumptious meals, make for a perfect Sunday brunch. Because I am obsessed with aesthetically pleasing places, my eyes were also made very happy. Everything was ‘insta-worthy’ and of course very ‘tumblr’. Kelly, who explained to us the concept of Hob Place, was such an amazing host and helped us choose our meals.( Thanks for the great suggestions!) With all that said, here’s our experience in pictures:

  • Drinks: non-alcoholic mimosas

  • Hob Place is also a guest house, so if you’re looking for a place to stay while visiting Nairobi, I would recommend staying here. Here are some rooms and places around the house.

If you couldn’t tell, I had a really great time today and I would definitely recommend visiting Hob Place. The service is amazing( I forgot to mention how fast our food came), the hospitality is great and most importantly it’s authentic Lebanese cuisine that takes you to  Lebanon.

Shoutout to Angeline for being such a fun tour guide ;  to Cindy for taking me such nice pictures ( you always take nice pictures of me to be honest) -thankyou so much ; To my parents for bringing us here and last but not least to Kelly, for being such a lovely host.

Live Inn- Park Inn by Radisson Blu

Hey guys! Hope you guys had a great week. Today’s post is going to be about my experience at the Live Inn which is one of the restaurants at Park Inn. Yesterday was my dad’s birthday so we my mum paid 😂- thanks mum) treated him. Anyway, our dining experience was great with just a few issues with the service and portions. Here’s our experience in pictures:

  • Here’s the menu:

  • Here are some drinks we got:

  • For a starter we got two classic ceasar salads. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend ordering this for anyone who wants to have JUST a salad. The portion was quite disappointing. Yes, I know we ordered it as a starter but we felt the serving could have been bigger and better presented. Nonetheless, the flavors were great, we were left wanting more.Literally and figuratively

  • For mains we got three different items; We had lamb, chicken and fish;My sister had a burger. Again, the portion of the fish could have been better. My parents got one prawn in a dish that was supposed to contain PRAWNS.( Multiple, not one.) So again a bit of a disappointment. The lamb on the other hand was a VERY generous portion so I would definitely recommend ordering this to share between at least four people.( We still had leftovers) The highlight of the lamb for me was the way it was presented.

After the main course, we were stuffed. And of course I had to have a little photo shoot because the hotel and restaurant was so aesthetically pleasing, I couldn’t handle it. If you go places just to take Instagram photos, Park inn is most definitely for you.

Overall, our experience was great and I’m looking forward to visiting Park Inn again. I would definitely recommend visiting the Live Inn restaurant. Just as long as you don’t mind waiting for some time before your food is ready. With all that being said, I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. As usual, feel free to leave comments, like this and share(please tag me in your posts so I can see them) I also made a facebook page for my blog so give that a like here .

Ololua Nature trail & Hemingways Review

Ololua Nature Trail.

Hey guys, happy new year!! I’m three days late though. Today’s post is going to be about my experience at the ololua nature trail and the hemingways hotel at Karen. My day started off with a walk at Ololua and it was quite interesting, we enjoyed the walk, that is,  until we got lost and kept going round in circles due the fact that the trail is not labelled. It became very frustrating but we burned some calories so not all was in vain. Here are some photos we took. Overall, the forest was beautiful but needs labeling.

Hemingways Hotel Karen.

The next stop was Hemingways hotel for lunch. And after the walk we were all highly appreciative of the beauty of the hotel. We had lunch in the outdoor area of hemingways and it was amazing, both the food and the landscape.

Here are some pictures of our meals:

  • Starters
  • Mains:
  • Desserts:
  • Drinks:

  • For mains we had:

Shrimp pad Thai, BBQ chicken & mushroom pizza, Goan prawns and I had the Cuban pork

The food was amazing and I would definitely recommend the Goan prawns for anyone who loves spicy food. The Cuban pork was beautiful and i would also recommend trying that.

  • Drinks:

I had a pineapple strawberry slushy and my sister had the mixed berry slushy. My slushy is on the bottom right.

And finally, because Urban eatery has such a great space I had to take a few photos with my sister:

The walls in Urban eatery are also really beautiful and have beautiful food-based puns and quotes. I would definitely recommend visiting this restaurant.

Where does what you eat come from?

Today I had a chance to visit the Organic Farmer’s market at Kilimani primary school. The market was filled with fresh produce including vegetables, cheese ,bread, meat, ice cream, wine and much more. There were also a few stalls selling local bags and material as well as fresh hot meals.

 

The above photos show some of the products on sale as well as the vendors and buyers. I would definitely recommend visiting this market for the fresh produce as well as the environment. The open area makes shopping much more fun and buying your vegetables this way helps you interact with the farmer directly and know where what you buy comes from. The market begins at 9:00 am and ends at three. For more information, you can click the links below to view their

Have a great Sunday and maybe next week you can visit this farmers market. Know where what you eat comes from!

 

Golden Spur: Sunday Lunch

Hey guys! Sorry for the delay; school got in the way but nonetheless, it’s here! Today’s post is a review of a restaurant I’ve gone to for as long as I can remember… always on a Sunday after church. I would definitely recommend going there for the Sunday buffet because of the variety and the tarts….definitely the tarts.

Here are some pictures of the things we always have and have always loved.

  • First, the variety of salad options.

Salad bar

  • Next, the choices of the mains. My all time favorite has to be the roast pork with the sweet and spicy sauce; I can never have enough.
  • Here’s a some photos of what our plates would usually look like
  • This final reason is something I MUST have EVERY SINGLE TIME! When we get there I always ask them if they have….tarts. If you have never had these, first I need to ask you where you’ve been and why you haven’t tried them yet. Dessert dear readers is very important and I would very much recommend the cheesecake and strawberry tarts.

Thank-you for reading this post. You can follow Golden Spurs here. Have a great day and don’t forget to like, share and comment. Enjoy!
