A Sneak Peek at Urban Gourmet Burgers Opening Later This Week at Westgate, Nairobi

This past Tuesday evening I made my way to Westgate upon Dekel’s secretive request. He is the young man in charge of Artcaffe Westgate. He allowed me to come plus one (Hannah) for this hush hush event they were hosting.

If you have been to Westgate in the past couple of weeks, you must have seen this door right by the main entrance, on the ground floor.

Sagi and Dekel invited a few close friends to sample the different burgers their menu before they open their doors to the public. Marek, Annabelle, Hannah and I take these things seriously  :-)

The staff taking care of us were friendly and quite enthusiastic about the restaurant. The chefs were pretty swamped…

After much eating and drinking, we gave our feedback and the following burgers were highly rated. The Texas burger, the Santa Fe (Shamim’s favorite) and the French Connection burger. This is not to say that the rest were not impressive, all the burgers were outstanding… Below is the Texas burger (my favorite :-)

I also had the onion rings which were delicious. The chicken wings also got two thumbs up from Marek and Annabelle.
