Dining In Nairobi: 1. Caramel Restaurant & Lounge

We had put the food club on hold for a while, until last week. What better location to kick off the monthly dinner plan other than at the Legendary Caramel Restaurant & Lounge, in ABC Place, Nairobi.

We had three options for the starter, four options for the main course, and two options for dessert. Allison took amazing care of us from the moment we walked in.

I opted for the Crispy Eggplant as my starter, having tried it before. I doubt eggplants have tasted this delicious before. Everyone who tried it loved it!

The other starter options were Seared Beef Carpaccio…..

…and the Caramel Veggie Roll…

Both of them are just as delightful. For the main course, I had the Herb Crusted Tuna Steak. It arrived as rare as I had requested it to be. In Africa, you generally have to request for rare or medium options, if you prefer it so, because meat and tuna are usually served well done.

The other main course options were Truffled Penne Pasta…

Marinated Grilled Chicken…

Beef Bolognese…

The reviews of the above three options were also really good. Everybody was pleased with their choices.

And now for dessert… I had the Key Lime Pie, which has always been a favourite…

I did get a chance to taste the second dessert option which was the refreshing Sorbet.

The dinner was loads of fun and we got to make new friends. For more information on what more Caramel Lounge has to offer, have a look at their Facebook Page here.

We are already planning the next dinner gathering in July!
