Sierra Wine Bar + GrillYaya Centre, Argwings Kodhek Rd, Hurlingham, Nairobi
The snapper on a bed of lentils, the CHICKEN WINGS, the beetroot and goats cheese starter, the chicken breast, all of the deserts...But the burgers...they went to town on their burger selection and they taste heavenly. Once you find what you love at sierra, its addictive. Beer is really really good, and their bar man is a great mixologist.
Originally went here with a few friends due to the burger festival, was a bit disappointed that it was not participating but we decided to stay anyway, had a blue cheese burger and it was amazing. It is without a doubt a great place, fairly quiet and enjoyable to go with a small group, a bit of a shame we didn't get a table outside but you cannot get everything in life. The menu is a pretty nice, a bit pricey but mostly holds up in terms of quality.
My dear friend and I had a lovely dinner experience during the Nairobi Restaurant Week 2017 :) The food was very tasty as we enjoyed the starter; a twice cooked pork belly with carrot and cashew nut puree, orange miso glaze and pickled onions! I would recommend the red wine braised oxtail of beef as the main course any day! My friend had the pan roasted nile perch but we were both disappointed on how dry and unpalatable it was. The chef must have been very exhausted because we hoped that this wasn't standard practice.
For dessert, we both had the lime steam pudding with coconut ice cream, lime and lemongrass syrup & chocolate ice cream with peanut praline and peanut butter ice cream. I would however recommend the latter. **
I am not a fan of beer so the complementary glass of belgium amber ale did not really appeal to me so I had their wonderful cocktail juice :)
The ambiance & value was worth every penny we spent there. We did not like the service since our waitress was a bit cold and this made the lead time between our orders very slow. Loved everything else though! Definitely going back!
I absolutely loved this place. Popped in there on a random saturday for lunch and despite it being a terrible day, our waiter made it so much better. The staff are amazing, very efficient and pleasant. the food was great, there is really nothing i can complain about. Will definitely be going back.
