#SquadDay at Tune Hotel

We all have busy lives!  There’s always something happening…if not work,  it’s school,  if you’re not attending a wedding it’s either a baby shower or bridal shower, for the ladies.  For the men, a game has to be watched,  the car has to be fixed some sleep has to be slept 😂 let’s just call them manly things. But we all have something that needs to be done especially over the weekend after a laborious week making money.

Unfortunately amidst all this, I feel like we loose track of making and maintaining the relationships we form. I am a big culprit of this 😥. But not all hope is lost,  the fat lady hasn’t sung the last line yet ergo #SquadDay.


I met this good people when doing my graduate studies and let’s just say they got me through the period where life was happening – school,  work, life, play, you name it. Most times we’d meet up after class at the parking lot or over some terrible coffee and chai in the school cafeteria till we’d get ‘kicked out’ cause they were closing up. School was done, but as I said life happens. So when I get a chance to meet, greet, probably eat and most definitely laugh with this lovely blend of friends, I’ll celebrate them.

Last Saturday, we (for those who made it) ended up at one of our friends ‘local’ (pronounced loko), let’s just say I have friends who demand a lot from a local but wow! I loved it. If I had a local,  this would feature somewhere on the list. The view from the rooftop bar and lounge at the Tune Hotel. It’s breathtakingly beautiful, gives you a great view of Nairobi, when you catch the sunset and there after into the night when the lights go on under a night sky all around.  Just that.  Beautiful!

My drink of choice for the day was the ‘dawa’ Cocktail and I got to sample their fries and chicken wings which we chowed down and if it wasn’t from the food we’d shared before we ended up here, I would have had servings of thirds and probably fourths because they were delish!

The lighting does not do the food justice but you trust me, right?

Great chill out spot for friends and/or with your significant other but be sure to carry a jacket cause it does get a little breezy at the open roof top although the warmers help and there is a dance floor to get you to warm up.

I’ll be back soon for sure, but wherever I am with this people is just great, even the parking lot 😊.

Where do you go for your #SquadDay or #DrinksDay? PS.  Tomorrow the weekend is here, if you didn’t have a spot now you do.  Thank me later




#RestaurantReview: Zucchini – The Eatery 

Ever so often, when I don’t  get the chance to visit my local vegetable vendor or the road side vegetable ‘kiosk’ within my home area and I happen to find myself in the mall Zucchini has always been my go to for a quick vegetable run.

Have you shopped there? Liked it?  Liked their pricing?

Did you know they have an eatery? Save from the breakfast serving I’ve heard a couple of people talk about,  they actually serve food…… And I love food. I can eat.

Girls and boys,  dudes and dudettes if you’ve met me, know of me, you know my love for potatoes!  Fry them,  boil them,  mash them,  bake them or stew them… For breakfast,  lunch,  dinner, tea time, snack time I can have potatoes all day every day.. So it goes without saying my order had to have them.

Order: Fries, Tikka lamb chops with a side serving of veges (read kachumbari).

Cost: KSh 900/-

My order was to go,  seeing as I was running late but food is a must people! If I don’t have fuel, I function at a dangerous low…

The fries were packed really well, super friendly for eating when on the go,  even when driving,  enough ketchup in the mini plastic cup, a serving for the kachumbari in a similar cup.

Maybe my expectations were, probably still are ridiculous, but for an eatery run by a grocer, I expected the vegetable serving to be generous, nearly half if not more than the serving of the fries…. But this is Africa, I am yet to meet anyone who follows the nutritionist’s recommended serving portions.

The napkin used to wrap the lamb chops was a turn off, I would have preferred simple parchment paper and dealt with any excess oil on my own or no napkin at all.  It absorb the moisture and had I waited any longer it would have been a task peeling it off the food because of the steam.

But all hope was not lost,  the fries and the serving portion did well enough to redeem the packaging and the lamb chops that were a bit on the chewy side given that I like my chips chunky (they tend to absorb less fat)  plus they make me feel like I’m having a plate of fries at home.

 Just looking at that 😋 makes me realise its lunch time! I sure will sample more of their menu soon….but if you have what would you recommend??

Hungrily yours,
