Happy Heroes day to my Kenyan readers!
I know we’re living in difficult times, difficult leadership and in as much as we may not always have a definite say, what we can say is that we are Kenyan.
Luckily enough, this look has the Kenyan flag colours on it and I definitely didn’t plan for this to happen.
I’m not so big on politicking because I have my own reservations but one thing I can say is that things will change sooner than later because we as the youth carry the nation.
I’d like to appreciate my favourite Kenyan Hero, Mekatilili Wa Menza not only because she was doing the unheard of, but because she fought for her people’s freedom and never gave up! Her story has always been inspirational and she really stood for her Giriama culture and din’t want her tribe to be eroded.
So because my mom hails from the Mijikenda tribe as well and has fought so much for my family, I also wanted to put her in as my hero for all she has done and I did that by wearing her work uniforms that are an identity of the Pride of Africa, Kenya Airways.
While we’re doing all these celebrations, I just wanted to share with you this amazing Japanese restaurant that I came across and I was in awe and would be perfect for a putlock kind of gathering.
The restaurant is called Chekafe Izakaya, a Japanese Sweets Factory located in Lavington.
First of all, If you know me you Know I always go for burgers and fries, so this was all 2020’s doing because I had to try something new.
I decided to have this experience with one of my favourite content creators Temina who I really had a great time with and you can get more of this on my Vlog which will be up soon.
The ambiance was so amazing, the open air sitting arrangements reminded me of the Japanese cultural way of saying Itadakimasu before eating and how they usually eat together in gatherings.
I walked in not knowing how to use chopsticks and by the time I came out, I was a pro bender! lol ( Avatar fans relate)
The meal portions were also very amazing, because I had a glass of virgin mojito for four hundred, the quantity and quality was just ELITE! I really can’t wait to go back there again.
I was also pleased with their service, they attend to you so well, they’re very warm and the owner Yuki trying to say some courteous Swahili words was so kind. I felt like I needed to have mastered a word or two in Japanese to show my respect and appreciation. ( next time I will)
We had sushi, dumplings, a pork noodle bowl and it seems a little but the way I was satisfied I had to get a take away. I’m just going to throw it here once more that I was a pro when it came to using the chopsticks! (not to toot my horn or anything but maybe it’s because I’m a fast learner and with the help of google I did good)
I’m going to share more info on the Vlog, the amazing band that was playing as we ate made the experience more magical it would only make sense for you to experience it yourself!
I really am a sucker for experience so I would really love to do more of Japanese, Korean and other cuisines to give my taste buds a run for their mouth. lol
Well that’s pretty much it for this week, I hope you enjoyed this post, do stay tuned for more and most importantly, stay safe!
