And here it is, a description of our lunch at Zapata, the first official Mexican Restaurant in Nairobi. Previously, if you wanted to try some mexican food, you would have to look at a tiny section of the menu at Havana or Sohos in Westlands. Now there’s an entire restaurant ready to be explored 🙂
Lucy, the restaurant’s head of marketing invited Miranda, Jean Michel and I thanks to Monica (Identity Partner) for lunch. Zapata is open for business but are in the testing stage. Eventually they will have their grand opening.
I must apologize for the picture quality. I got my fabulous camera a few days after this lunch. I used Miranda’s iPhone to document our culinary journey…..
To kick start the lunch we had the cream corn soup which really good (as you can see I remembered to take a picture when I was halfway through it)
Then came our main course which was chicken fajitas accompanied with beans.
I believe these are the first corn tortillas I have had in Nairobi. All other restaurants serve flour tortillas…..
We must have gone through 5 baskets of these lovely tortilla chips….
Our dessert was ice cream and pie. The reason my ice cream is partly melted is because I was still getting over my surprise after meeting the chef, Omar from Mexico….
At a very tender age of 23, Omar has 7 years of cooking experience and is very excited about working in Nairobi.
Here are more pictures of Zapata.
As always we had fun 🙂
