Here’s the low-down on what’s cooking!

TasteDid you know this about dark chocolate?
Although not a scientifically proven aphrodisiac, dark chocolate is a tried and tested way to win most any heart – that is, if you can handle its delicious bitterness. Aside from its alluring and mysterious appearance, it is packed with potassium, iron and antioxidants that work to improve general cardiovascular health and brain function!

Restaurant Review
During the month of love, local restaurants respond well to cupid-struck city dwellers. Try one of Nairobi’s most romantic eateries.

Pango Brasserie
In the charming setting of the stone-clad Fairview Hotel lies Pango Brasserie. Pango’s distinguishing quality is the underground wine cellar. Take a tour of the oaky-scented cave and hand-select a special bottle from their worldwide collection. Pango’s menu is a robust journey through gourmet renditions of hearty European cuisine. The Goose Liver Bavarois and Vacuum-poached Red Snapper are evidence of their culinary prowess. End your meal with any of the chef’s famous chocolate-based desserts – we suggest the Chocolate Buche with Paw Paw Cream.

The Mandhari
The Mandhari Restaurant is the flagship restaurant of the Nairobi Serena Hotel. Sit inside where the velvet and soapstone finishes and tinkling piano keys get you swooning before the meal’s begun. Mandhari’s seasonal menu features tender cuts like Highland Beef and Chicken Roulade on Mango Coulis. Create the perfect finish to the romantic night out with their chocolate truffle tarts, smoky espresso and more.
