Jikoni晚餐——怀旧之夜,友谊和美味佳肴

Jikoni晚餐——怀旧之夜,友谊和美味佳肴

在肯尼亚长大,在家里一切都围绕着Jikoni,意思是斯瓦希里的厨房,你会花很多时间在这里,watching as your mum prepared food while you chatted away.

坐在厨师桌旁,拉文德尔·博加尔,她的厨师同事们做的菜真是太棒了,就像家里的一点东西。事实上,整个经历使我们处于一种幸福的状态。我们大多数人,par 2 other halves,在肯尼亚长大,我们从小就认识。赶上肯尼亚朋友总是很有意思的,因为你会在你离开的地方找到他们。


The beautiful setting,东非的接触,and complete with lots of tupperware filled with various spices,草药和配料,太可爱了,餐厅内的休闲空间可供用餐。

This is Ravinder's first restaurant venture and as you walk into the gorgeous restaurant,感觉就像你走进了别人的房子。非洲印花靠垫,the decor and even the music is all just so lovely and you feel instantly relaxed.

这道菜是多元文化的,带着肯尼亚的暗示,由于受到她混合文化遗产的影响,which is similar to ours,以及她旅行的各个方面。它主要是融合食物,令人惊叹!!

PS: Kenyans please don't walk in and expect Kenyan food but hints of it,and trust me you won't be disappointed but instead in awe.Jikoni is not trying to be a Kenyan restaurant 🙂

当我们和Ravinder聊起蒙巴萨著名的SheraDamji蛋糕时,我们立刻感到怀旧。从我们第一个生日开始,我们都是和这些蛋糕一起长大的,没有人会忘记那些巧克力蛋糕上覆盖着那些美味的玫瑰。原来Ravinder的另一半和Shera Damji有关,and we got to meet the lovely Nadeem later too.

饮料,the majority of us went for Dawas because why not?These are the best cocktails for sundowners in Kenya and if you are ever visiting Kenya you must have this as you watch the sun set.拉文德的版本同样美味!!

The great thing about going for dinner in a big group is you get to try lots of different dishes.From the Kazuri section of the menu,we tried the Carom Seed Mathis with Apple Achaar (pictured below),很可爱,又脆又有香味,and the Pondicherry Prawn Puffs.

The prawn puffs caused another bout of nostalgia with J saying that it reminded her of a dish that ASN's grandmother used to make.它很好吃,是这顿饭的亮点之一。

从小板部分,我们从甘薯开始,bhel棒极了,从通常的bhel升级的很好,扑朔迷离,甜美的,酸味和水果味,生芒果,这是我绝对喜欢的,而且会把一切都磨碎!!

烧焦的手风琴鱿鱼配上洋蓟和蒜味面包屑,味道很好,但不是我最喜欢的菜。然而,充满味道和蒜味面包屑是新颖和伟大的触摸。

辣椒花椰菜爆米花,洋葱和大蒜是绝对神圣和上瘾。I loved the crispy exterior and the soft interior and the dipping sauce that it came with.

The final choice from the small plates was the Beetroot and Shanklish Croquetas,which was just outstanding.酥脆的外表上有一层香料,and you could get the aroma of cumin seeds,one which intoxicates me.The interior was soft,像甜菜根一样的液体让我们惊讶,我们想知道她是如何做到完美的!它很好吃,是一道必须点的菜。

对于大盘子,we decided to each get our own.我和阿斯恩被夹在羊肉基玛和腌洋葱之间,薄荷和芒果酸辣酱,烤奶油蛋卷和油炸土豆条,以及龙虾开胃菜配莫利肉汤和椰子酸辣酱。我们决定分享,这样我们可以尝试两者。

羊肉基玛马虎乔(见下图)真是太好吃了。太多的味道了,我很想把它当作舒适的食物吃,因为它让我很开心。喜欢它旁边的油炸土豆条,奶油蛋卷非常柔软,和辣味的基玛完美搭配。

龙虾“khichdee”同样诱人,肉汤也相当上瘾。I love Lobster generally and I would come back for this dish!!

我们点的其他主菜还包括阿拉伯之夜普桑和传统番茄和洗手液沙拉。漆树,还有青芒果和澳洲坚果的鲭罗杰克。这些盘子都擦干净了,所以我猜他们也喜欢这些盘子。

我们从侧面订购了绿豆和腰果胸肉(如下图所示)。真的很愉快。

Caramel Chips were just indulgent and tasty too!I know we ordered a lot of food but we got through all of it and still had space for dessert!我们在笑,抓紧记忆,计划新的记忆,and time just went by.

IMG1212

We all miraculously had space for dessert and we started off with some Kenyan Chai.Another wave of nostalgia hit,因为这些舒缓的香料让我们想起了你的妈妈们,每当我们心情低落的时候,就给我们一杯热柴。这杯柴让我们笑了,太棒了。

The majority went with the Banana Cake with Miso Butterscotch,Ovaltine Kulfi,花生脆,坦率地说,离开这个世界。I will be back for this dessert too!!

A去了帕安马德琳,它自带一杯肯尼亚茶,and he loved it.Paan is a popular choice after a meal as it is like a digestive and mouth freshener.Loved the novel idea of infusing Madeleines with the flavour!!

IMG1236

If you haven't been you need to make your way to Jikoni as the food is just fantastic.如果你是一个大团体,厨师桌(如果有的话)很有趣。

他们也开始在周末吃早午餐,所以如果你想找个新的地方吃早午餐,这是一个很好的选择。

    我和几个朋友有个预约要到这里来,我对此很兴奋,但是当我把菜单给哈比看的时候,他说的第一件事是是吗?鸡在哪儿?!"I tried to point out that it should be quality over quantity and there is more the food world that just chicken and I'm keeping the reservation for now but am going to show him your blog post to prove that I was right to book it for our long overdue meet up with our friends 🙂 The keema sloppy joe looks fab and I love the idea of ending a meal with masala chai.我们在Gymkhana做的,真是太好了!!
