Weekend Discovery: Picazzo

By show of hands; how many of you like Italian food? Personally I’m not crazyy about it though i do admire their attention to detail when it comes to bringing out flavors. However, i find the mixture of ingredients a bit overwhelming, say a boiled egg in the middle of a pizza ๐Ÿ˜ (yap!!) 

So i was out on Saturday with a friend of mine at a mall and we decided to go for sundowners, we quickly skimmed through the restaurants within the vicinity and settled on this one. It’s so easy to see why ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

When my friend went to the washroom I decided to play him and instead of getting alcoholic drinks i got us juice ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ –should have seen his face when he tried it-  They turned out to be pretty good! They even threw in a few bitings as we waited for our drinks to be served. 

Piccazo is a beautiful and intimate place especially for family dinners and dates. The ambiance was all sorts of amazing and not forgetting the impacable service from the staff. I definitely recommend it ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐ŸฝShall visit them again soon and do a menu review. 

Here are a few pictures i took at Piccazo, which is located at the hub Karen. 

Comment below and let me know how your weekend was . ๐Ÿ˜Š

MOCA LOCAย 

Hi loves, 

How is the second week of January going for you? Personally I’m stocked. Between early morning classes, gym and volunteer work within school i feel overwhelmed ๐Ÿ˜… I’m just praying that time flies and i get over with this semester. 

This past Sunday a friend and I decided to go watch Star Wars: Rogue One at the theater, we got there a bit late therefore had to wait for the next showtime which was in like 2 hours. To kill time we decided to chill at this cosy cafe inside the mall called Moca Loca. 

The cafe has a rustic feel to it which makes it stand out. Their menu also had a good range, from pastries to breakfast dishes. I opted to try the fish fingers as it’s a light snack. They didn’t disappoint ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜Š

The fish fingers came with a side dip of mayonnaise which was soo good
We also tried their cocktails, i had a Cosmopolitan which was tasty and my pal had a Flaming Russian

I’ll definitely be going back to this cafe, especially after a long day at Uni ๐Ÿ˜ 

LOCATION: Garden City Mall, Third Floor (Nairobi)

NEW YEAR, Same Appettite

Happy New year loves!! How i missed you all so much. My reading list was rather empty lol I hope that the holiday season was fantastic? Mine sure was. How did you all usher in 2017? I’d love to know. Comment below ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽˆ

So 4th January was my younger sisters birthday and we decided to take her out for a simple family lunch. We went to Westgate mall (Nairobi) where we discovered the cutest noodle bar. Noodle bars are rather a new thing in Nairobi. This is the cities first Noodle bar & South East Asian ‘street food ‘ outlet …

I can never have enough of Asian food. I’ve sampled alot of Asian dishes in Nairobi but this noodle bar tops ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐ŸฝI’ll definitely be going back for more 

The prices range from around 3$ to 9$. They also have a Build It Yourself section where you get to choose your own base, vegetables and sauce. 

OhCha opens 11am to Midnight everyday.

Taste of India at The Concord

Hi loves!! 

I hope you’re all doing great as we countdown to 2017. Amazing and scary at the same time how time flies right?! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„

On this blog i wanted to showcase one of my favorite cuisine; which is Indian. I cannot emphasize enough as to how much i loveee Indian food!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š

Honestly we could not even pronounce the names of the dishes, but loosely translated the rice dish was Biryani and the other dish was naan and butter chicken. (Ps naan is a type of flat bread)

The food was amazing. Would love to know what your favorite holiday dishes are? Feel free to comment

BIRTHDAY BLUESย 

Birthdays have always been special occasions in my family. My dad would go out of his way to make sure that his little girls had the best time. Our birthdays normally consisted of cake, drinks and food, and, that is a tradition that my sisters and i have carried on with ๐Ÿ˜Š 

I’ve had two amazing birthdays in my adult years: one which this guy i was dating (now my ex, no names ๐Ÿ˜)went out of his way to make sure i had a blast. This years is two.

I love people who go the extra mile, because I’m one of them myself. Im shamelessly selfless and therefore get easily hurt when i encounter selfish people. 

This year, this group of people that i spent my birthday with proved to me that genuine love does exist. It wasn’t about the gifts or venue, what hit home with me is the fact that they were more excited than i was ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ 

Here are a few pictures from the day. 
Ps. If you have people who stay in your life even when you have nothing to offer them, keep them!!

Sunny Days

Hey loves I hope you’re all having a kick ass week. I found myself reminiscing of the sunny days when I didn’t have to drape myself in a scarf and jacket like ย an Eskimo. I’m not too fond of the cold (Can’t imagine myself surviving a winter if I ever have to someday). With that said I decided to share one of my best memories of the sunny days, which involves food of course! ๐Ÿ˜€

My sisters and I had lunch at News Cafe which is a contemporary cafe/bar chain with an upbeat vibe and an amazing ambiance.

Enjoy the post. xoxoxo

This is ย a section of the indoor dinning when it’s all lit up at night. Looks quite romantic if I must say. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The waitress who served us was quick and surprisingly had a smile the whole time she catered to us, which is quite rare with most service people in Nairobi.

Shortly after our food arrived. I had their barbeque wings, my younger sister had shrimps and the other had chicken breast stuffed with cheese. The food was mouth-watering and portions were fairly on point as you can all see.

On our way out, I took this shot of the front seating area which is more of a lounge for the internet and coffee lovers. It blew my mind.
