Thank you for watching this ultimate Kenyan street food tour in Nairobi! I met up with my friend James who took me around to a few of his favorite spots to eat.

Kawangware, Nairobi, Kenya

Here’s most of the food we tried on this amazing tour of Nairobi:

Ann Restaurant – Dagoretti Corner – This small street food stall on Dagoretti Corner in Nairobi serves all sorts of Kenyan / East African foods. Their chapatis are especially good, and their Lake Victoria sardines fried with tomatoes.
Dagaa – Lake Victoria sardine
Matumbo – stomach stew
Githeri – beans and maize
The guy sitting across the table – “you should not eat beans and sardines together, or you’ll have gas.”
Total bill – 1,050 KES ($10.39) – we paid for 4 or 5 guys eating there

Stomach Clinix – This was the best food stop of the day, a neighborhood meat shop that James took me to that specializes in cow head soup. The grilled tongue was also spectacular, but the soup was the best.
Total price – 200 KES ($1.98)

Dagoretti Market – After the meat, we took a walk over to Dagoretti Market. After browsing around for a while, we stopped for another plate of mixed Kenyan food, mostly dengu, which are mung beans. It was simple, but quite good.
Dengu – mung beans
Total price – 300 KES ($2.97)

Unity Cafe Hotel – We met up with some of James’ friend in Kawangware, and went to eat across the street from their shoe shop. The mandazi mix was the highlight of this Kenyan meal.
Total price – 600 KES ($5.94) for all

Cow foot fry – Next we headed over to Oscar who makes cow food soup, fry and boil. He was a very friendly man, and showed me his entire process of making cow foot soup. It was delicious!
Total price – 450 KES ($4.45)

Kenyan street food – To end this Kenyan street food tour of Nairobi we had to eat one of the ultimate Kenyan fast food meat treats. You’ll see these types of grills all over the streets in the late afternoon throughout Nairobi. You just choose what you want, it’s cut on the chopping board, and you stand and eat.
Mutura – minced meat sausage
Mutura – blood sausage
Total price – 200 KES ($1.97)

Thank you for watching this ultimate Nairobi street food tour!

    I loved the video but i also feel like some other Kenyan street food like mahindi choma, mayai pasua, smokie pasua or chipo mwitu( street fries) were left out . If ever Mark visits Kenya again then I'd love to see his take on those foods

  27. Simple Truth
