Proudly Kenyan; Snack Edition
A little bit of salt, a little bit of sweet, a little bit of savory… there’s nothing like a snack to hold you down in between meals or keep you company while you catch a movie. We have a few favourites;
Top of our list is corn on the comb, grilled over an open fire (or on a grill if you’re feeling a litu fancy). It’s fine if you don’t have a grill though, hehe, or a jiko… there’s always a mahindi choma guy around the corner. We like ours with a sprinkling of pepper and a dash of lemon. Talk of tangy deliciousness.
Smokie | boiled eggs
We have to agree with us, the Kenyan experience is not complete without either or both of these snacks. The best part is that there is always a vendor around serving warm smokies and eggs, with a nice serving of Kachumbari. Kachumbari can uplift even the most bland of meals, but in this case elevates this protein rich snack into heavenly status.
Every successful butcher knows a little mutura goes a long way after a hard day; which should explain why you will find him grilling this snack (intestines filled with mince meat) as you head home from work. We like our mutura served with a little chilli. How do do you like yours?
ProTip: buy your mutura in smaller servings instead of one large serving, this way you get great value (read ‘quantity’) for your money.
