Nyama Mama restaurant has proudly launched its second signature outlet. Located at the Capital Centre, Mombasa
Road, the establishment will become a focal point of the area serving both local residents and tourists connecting to the airport alike.
Nyama Mama is a new interpretation of the things we so fondly grew up with. An urban atmosphere with a nostalgic feel, it is as though you were sitting at grandma’s home. In fact the UK’s Evening Standard heralded it as ‘giving African food a much needed modern makeover’ along with famed American Chef Personality Anthony Bourdain making Mama’s a pit stop on his Kenyan Adventure.
After working as a cook in exclusive safari lodges around East and West Africa, Mama as gone back to her childhood roots preparing home-style dishes with an eclectic twist. A fun African roadside diner Mama’s food is a burst of flavour, taking common dishes and transforming them into something contemporary. And when Mama was on the dusty road, she would mix magical spicy and fruity potions for her friends, using fine African ingredients and special homemade infusions. Her cocktails are one-of-kind served in iconic metal Vikombe.
This opening comes on the back of Mama’s recent win at the 2018 World Luxury Restaurant Awards where she was awarded for Best African Cuisine, Africa Continent. Nyama Mama currently calls Delta Corner home in Westlands. At Capital Centre, Mama will introduce an area of fun activities and a shop of Mama’s collectables that have become so coveted.
