Long for NRW. What is this you ask? Something I discovered a little too late into the year to my disappointment. It’s a tradition amongst several major cities around the World including Cape Town, London, New York and since 2014, Nairobi. This is an annual event from the 22nd of January, where all restaurant menus are priced at Ksh 1500 and 2000. This event lasts for about 10 days and participating restaurants include, Villa Rosa Kempinski, About Thyeme, Adgeda, Asmara, among many others. There’s always next year however, so don’t go spending all your money this coming Christmas and New Year.
Seems like a long shot, probably, but not impossible to win. I speak from experience. There’s always a competition provided for on a magazine or social media, with the opportunity to eat out at an established restaurant. You’d be surprised how many people don’t take the opportunity, meaning less competition. A little motivation for you; I managed to bag a free diner for four at Ocean Basket with only 20 likes for a picture on Facebook. All you have to do is keep an eye out, and participate.
From websites and applications such as Hello Food and Yum Kenya, to simply calling the restaurant you want a delivery from, there are several methods of getting your food to you. This removes the hassle for fuel or matatu money, while you enjoy a meal in the comfort of your own home. You must be thinking…this probably beats the purpose of eating out. Well, there are only so many ways you can look to reduce on your eat out spending.
Eating affordable in Nairobi is possible with just a bit of research and some fortuitous circumstances.
