Colours. Almost all of them in the rainbow. The Gai Phad Pak or Stir fried chicken with vegetables, for those who can not read Thai, came with a helping of noodles. That made for an interesting contrast. All these colourful veges against the stark white. (Arya for the win...sorry, couldn't resist.)
Google cow hoof and you might be directed to something called cow's trotter's instead. Wikipedia actually says it’s a delicacy in Uganda. Which, true, except we call it Molokony. It is so loved that now you can find it being sold on many street corners which in itself wouldn't be a surprise except that the beauty … Continue reading Have a taste of Molokony AKA Cow hoof
Kampala people are very mobile. So it makes sense that the food is evolving to keep up. Some people have taken this literally by setting up food trucks. The basic DNA of the food served is 'fast food'; things that are affordable and can be prepared (and delivered) in time. And it looks like there … Continue reading A run down of food trucks in Kampala
Remember this promo ? Faisal and Joan won and they had a blast with Yujo's special Valentine's menu. And they tried this beauty.

We instead import boxes of corn flakes from miles away with food colourants, additives and preservatives whose long term … Continue reading Aunty Mo; The first Ugandan made organic breakfast cereal.
So I visited Ethiopia the other day…Ethiopia in Kabalgala, Kampala that is. Khukyenda might not fully agree but there are ways to travel without packing a bag. A good book, a good film, a song, an orgasmic experience can take you places. Now imagine what a multi-sensory experience like eating can do. Yes i had a good … Continue reading Enjera at Dukem
In a way, the calzone is very understated. Just 3 ingredients. The pulled pork is extra juicy, the cheese adequate and stringy and the mushrooms chewy so you will get that um, range of textures. Hats off to the chef because those ingredients are very carefully calibrated. You will NOT take a bite that does not have all of the 3. I also tried my friend’s portion and the same was true.
If you love someone let them go? No, if you love someone post a picture of them, or you and them and stand a chance to win a free meal at Yujo Izakaya. Make this 14th of Feb extra special and dine out at the best Japanese restaurant in Kampala™. If nothing else, take this … Continue reading Love and food go together this Valentine’s
By now, a lot of people know why boiled food is good for them. But what a lot of people haven’t figured out is how to make boiled food that actually tastes good. Sometimes it’s so bland it just makes you sad. The poor thing gets drowned in a pool of water that washes all … Continue reading Go to Yaya lounge for healthy boiled food that doesn’t suck
Here’s a compromise, how about you work out a little and then follow that up with really tasty beverages. That is the formula for healthy living; exercise combined with clean eating. But Ref Living raw embodies it in store that literally does both. As the sports shop, they look out for the physical, as the … Continue reading Start off the new year healthy, with a visit to REF
