I didn't know anything much about Kenyan food before going to Swahili. I still don't know much, but I do know that I want to go back again. The food was inexpensive but excellent. It was a little spicy, but only enough to make it more interesting.
First I had a samosa (four of us were sharing these), a seasoned beef pastry with onion and cilantro-- and just right amounts of each for my taste.
Next was a goat dish with seasoned rice and spinach (the two sides were my own choices-- you get two picks with an entree.) I had eaten goat once before, in a very bland stew, and found it chewy and otherwise uninteresting. This was a baked preparation, and it was definitely terrific. My culinary "courage" was very well rewarded! The rice was a nice change from typical rice, and the spinach was very pleasing.
But wait, there's more: lots more! The portions were very generous; it was disappointing to leave food uneaten, but it would have been even more disappointing to suffer the effects of overeating. Really, the food was super.
Interesting decor. Friendly, helpful, efficient server. A decent glass of wine. This was a special night out for us.
