Eating and Outing: When East meets West Africa flavour

What you need to know:

  • UberEats delivered the burger surprisingly fast, in about 20 minutes, still hot and neatly packed.
  • At Sh1,200, it costs higher than your average burger in Nairobi, and I hoped it would live up to the hype.
  • At first bite, it was a delightful burst of flavour with a juicy patty, slight hint of chilli, the melted cheese and vegetables...I even tasted a hint of gherkins in there.

The owners of Mama Rocks Gourmet Burgers were featured on the YouTube platform of one of my favourite international food channels, Munchies, earlier in the year. I’ve eaten at two of their outlets so far, the first being the food truck in Westlands which caused quite the buzz on the Kenyan food scene in the year it opened, and the second being in Kilimani; a rustic vibrant space with good music and a lively ambiance. I had however never really known the backstory of the restaurant.
