I have been in Nairobi for over three years and I only just went to Carnivore. Why did I wait so long? There are a few reasons. First, it’s far from me. Second, I heard that the food was no longer good. Finally, I heard that it was played out and no longer a fun experience.
What I heard was wrong. Yes, it’s far, but it’s worth the trip. The food is very good! And the experience was great!
Yes, it’s expanded from the days that J. and his family would go there. But it’s not some kind of enormous Disneyland of food. It’s a nice, casual, churrascaria-type restaurant. (They do have vegetarian options.)
There is some “game” meat like antelope, crocodile, and ostrich. There is also plenty of chicken and beef and pork. There were also ox balls, which I have discovered to be delicious.
In addition to the great food, the setting was nice and the service was great. Oh, and their wine list is pretty good. I had a fantastic time there with friends who were visiting from home. Yes, they enjoyed it too.
I’m not going to wait another three years to go back!
