Nairobi’s food and beverage scene had come to an almost complete standstill, due to the coronavirus pandemic, but now, city dwellers and visitors will enjoy what it has to offer from its restaurants.
Then, most restaurants operated under strict measures; most at half capacity, early closures and only takeaway being allowed.
Thanks to Mastercard, in partnership with EatOut and Singleton, who are inviting the city dwellers and visitors to an exclusive sensory journey this November dubbed Taste of Nairobi.
Taste of Nairobi will highlight the very best of the city’s dining scene featuring 12 of Nairobi’s finest restaurants and 11 Pop-Ups that will showcase mouth-watering, one-of-a-kind tasting menus and experiences from November 4, 2021, for up to 6 weeks.
“These establishments are known for their exceptional food, sustainable approach, impeccable service, and priceless dining experiences, and with this campaign, we simply want to put them centre stage and showcase what Nairobi has to offer to the whole world!” says Joy Wairimu, General Manager at EatOut.
“The Singleton is a deliciously smooth and award-winning single malt crafted to be enjoyed from the very first sip. Unapologetically enjoyed especially in great tasting experiences. We bring good friends together through easy to enjoy experiences that let you DO YOU!! This partnership with Eat Out has us in our element and we cannot wait to showcase our brand’s taste and deliciousness in the next coming weeks. We await to open up a whole world of taste, experience and togetherness in Nairobi.
