Kenya does not seem to have a strong food culture, but we ate well in the eco-lodges we stayed at on our trip. We had a day on either end in Nairobi, and the best meals we had were lunches at Talisman, in the posh suburb of Karen. The food was quite good, the setting pleasant, the service friendly, and the prices reasonable. If this place were transported to one of my cities, I’d be a regular.
Moroccan spiced beef with hummus, mango chutney, minted yogurt ($19 USD).
Tuna poke bowl with kohlrabi slaw and spiced brown rice ($15 USD).
These mains were a filling lunch without appetizers or dessert, though the choices there looked good as well.
