Nyama Mama, Westlands

Delta Towers, Nairobi, Kenya

Nyama Mama is a fun spot in Westlands serving homey Kenyan and African cuisine. The decor is hip and funky: bright yellow sofas adorned with colorful kanga cushions, chunky metal lights, and the kitchen set within a shipping container. One of the best items on the menu is the lentil dal served with chapati and a side of your choice, from fried plantains to kachumbari salad (chopped tomatoes and onions) or sautéed sukuma wiki (spinach). Nyama Mama also offers a limited late-night menu until 4 a.m., convenient for those lingering at the cocktail bar upstairs.
