Talisker Storm Whisky
Whisky lovers in Kenya now have one more reason to celebrate: East African Breweries Ltd have recently introduced a new single malt Scotch whisky brand as the brewer seeks to broaden the category to meet demand from the growing band of whisky lovers in Kenya.

For You Restaurant
No, really, it’s for you. Most know of their branch along Gitanga (at the corner of Gitanga and Ole Dume Road). Simply the best Chinese cuisine in town. If you go late you won’t find a table for lunch or dinner. To cater for more clients they have opened another branch just up the road; bigger gardens, more sitting space and a better children’s playground. The food is still excellent.

C-Class makes an entrance
Car dealership DT Dobie recently completed the introduction of the new Mercedes range in Kenya by launching the C-Class. For guidance in bar-conversation, the C-Class has two versions, the Avantgarde and the Exclusive. The latter has the traditional Mercedes Benz grille and the former is designed to appeal to motorists who like a sporty front-end appearance.
