I was in Nariobi for a week and decided to splurge on eating out.

My Favorites

Maybe we’ll add these to Harry’s list when he’s tried them.

I decided to make chili the other day.

As I was collecting the ingredients, I realized chili is basically kachumbari and githeri boiled together.

It’s neat how tomatoes, onions, and beans are universal.




Sean, Hyunjin, and I went to the market today and I got some sweet bananas.

These are just little compared to regular bananas.

Sean says they taste much better, but I don’t think they’re any different.

They have jam jar and paneer pizza here!


Jar jam is one of the few wines I like and the paneer pizza rivals Tasty Subs and Pizza in California.

I feel so at home!
