Jason and I
The hub is a large modern mall located in the suburbs of Karen in Nairobi.
It opened towards the end of 2016 and has literally become the talk of the town.
Everyone I know and their mothers, have been there. I wasn’t particularly interested in going as there was nothing pulling me in that direction. It generally takes a LOT to get me to go to Karen in the first place and I can tell you for free, a mall won’t be it.
Till very recently 2 things happened; I was asked to house sit in Karen and at the same time, got invited to lunch by my friend Jason.
For my main course I had the Dal Makhni Mayura which is slow cooked lentils in a combination of spices and topped with butter and cream. Now listen folks, I don’t often eat dal at indian restaurants, I usually just prefer my home cooked version. But let me tell you, I felt like my mother made that dish!! And that’s to say A LOT. I ate sooo much, I was so embarrassed when a button almost came off my skirt. It was just perfectly blended, well cooked so the dal was’t too soft or soggy just the right consistency and the perfect amount and combination of spice. Rajiv swears by the dal.
I didn’t want to hear the words desert at this point, but let me tell you, those guys were not about to stop feeding us. Can I hear a gym calling in the distance?
Next ee were served lassi’s. One tree tomato and one mango. Nothing can quench your thirst in the hot December sun like a good and well flavoured lassi. Be sure NOT to order the chaach (salty lassi). It’s a VERY acquired taste. Then one plate of dessert, a kulfi topped with crushed pistacho’s for Jason and I to share and off into a food coma we went.
The restaurant is beautiful and the food is really good, I highly recommend it weather or not you’re in the Karen area. It’s worth the drive.
I’d say 4/5
