The Handshake team, Neema and Eric from WWF and Eric’s daughter all went out for lunch when our plans for lunch were cancelled with a local community. We ate at Coast Dishes, the only place I’ve heard of that serves traditional Kenyan food. Other restaurants around Diani serve Italian and Indian food. The menu consisted of many curry dishes including chicken, beef, fish or mutton. Other light dishes and snacks were available like; chapatis, coconut beans, rice, samosas and many others.
My first choice was the Mutton Biriani but mutton was off the menu, instead I had fish. Everyone was surprised by the large portions and most of us left a large amount of our meal as we were too full. The food was lovely and it was great to experience traditional food. I loved the way my fish biriani was displayed, check it out in the photo above.
