Nairobi Restaurant Week 2016 Press Launch

The Nairobi Restaurant Week is back! Scream as loud as you can if you know what this means!

All together now!



I attended a really amazing press launch held at the new Brew Bistro in Westlands and organized by the lovely folks at Eat Out Kenya. I love it when a press launch leaves you feeling excited about an upcoming event. The Nairobi Restaurant Week launch was a prime example of this as it saw a number of media personalities, bloggers, foodies, sponsors and good vibe lovers congregate for an amazing afternoon of wine tasting, food making and fun!

Below are a few highlights from the event.
