Here’s the low-down on what’s cooking

Oktoberfest may have its origins in Germany but when in Kenya, be sure to try the country’s most popular beer: Tusker. This beer by East Africa Breweries Limited was so named after the founder was killed in an elephant hunting accident. The very frothy Tusker has seen generations adore its crisp, refreshing flavour, and it is bound to be a hit this season.

Restaurant reviews:
Oktoberfest is upon us, and the one German phrase everyone should know is ‘noch ein bier, bitte!’ (another beer, please!). If this season finds you in Nairobi, here are two bars you should pop into:

1 Que Pasa Bar & Bistro
Nothing beats beer and sport! This bar is ideal if you’re looking to watch a football match with your mates over a pint or two in an upmarket environment. The space is warm and inviting and will meet your needs this season. Share a pizza, mussels and any of chef Anthony’s delectable creations, coupled with your favourite beer.
Que Pasa Bar & Bistro is located at the Karen Shopping Centre, Karen  www.eatout.co.ke/nairobi/que-pasa-bar-bistro

2 Brew Bistro
Craft beers, a jovial crowd and good music? If Brew Bistro is where you intend on starting your evening then don’t leave without tackling a hearty burger or steak. Come on Tuesday or Thursday evenings for live music. Pop in on weekend nights, after 9pm, order a few plates of tapas and tackle a round of Big Five Breweries’ award-winning beers.
Brew Bistro is located at Piedmont Plaza, Ngong Rd.  www.eatout.co.ke/nairobi/brew-bistro-lounge
