Diary of a Diasporian:Lenny Kimani Samples “Mark Zuckerberg Special” at Mama Oliech’s eatery in Kenya

Mama Oliech’s eatery is located in  Yaya Centre near Kilimani area, an affluent neighborhood in the city of Nairobi,Kenya

Mama Oliech’s  eatery became famous after Mark Zuckerberg(worth US $74.2 billion )American computer programmer and Internet entrepreneur/CEO Facebook, in the company of Information and Communication Technology Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru and Principal Secretary Victor Kaylo  ate  fish and ugali at  the reastaurant when he visited Kenya in early September  2016

We had an opportunity to visit Mama Oliech’s eatery with two of my friends from the U.K, Ikram & Zubair

This was our experience

The restaurant had a calm atmosphere and was full of families  and friends gathering for a nice meal and a great place to hold a meeting

The eatery’s ambience  had an authentic African feel.

We sat inside,at a table  where Mark Zuckerberg sat literary the same table, same chair as it is a custom to many visitors at the restaurant

There was outdoor seating that looked very inviting however, we moved to the inside because it was too close to the parking lot.
Something to note the prices at the outdoor seating were 30% higher for the same food and the waiters did not inform the  customers of the difference in costs either outside or inside.
The ugali and local vegetables were delicious and the fish was tasty.

We ordered the very same meal Mark Zuckerberg ordered.

 

The meal is called fish special and cost  $10, it comes with two sides of ugali and kale ( locally known as sukuma wiki )

The fish was a good size for the price and the food was filling.

The waiters were friendly but too relaxed and casual,especially for folks used to larger, fast- food franchises in the west.                Pic: Facebook/Images

The waiter’s also gather in groups to converse which seemed out of place especially for new or returning visitors.

Mama Oliech’s stands for it’s name in delivering quality delicious food that took about 10-15 minutes to get to our table.

Parking is small and could be tricky during peak hours so avoid peak hours,like lunch and dinner time.

Overall my experience was excellent i would definitely visit again,very balanced,healthy foods, a must for every visiting Diasporian.

Not to mention,Mama Oliech’s eatery has free WIFI⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ .
