1st things 1st shout out to all the locals one thing that we luck in Nairobi is McDonalds but guess what we don’t need McDonald’s unhealthy, thin, God knows what’s in the beef burger. For two years running now after a successful round of Nairobi Restaurant Week and Pizza festival, Nairobi has decided it’s time for its very own burger festival…like legit gourmet, flame grilled, juicy burger fest.


Now…any foodie out there will probably suggest that Nairobi is not really a foodie haven but this oh man, oh man, oh man… Nairobi burger festival is straight up fire!!! I’m talking giving Melbourne, Cape town and Philadelphia a run for their money…I don’t know why I mentioned those particular cities but for some reason I ate some pretty good burgers while visiting so…

Anyway back to Nairobi Burger Fest this is a perfect excuse for a cheat meal week, with just around 80 or so restaurants participating from the 30th of May to 5th June, this event is all week long so if you are in the country there is really no excuse. For you locals it might be a solid plan with the homies, for the East African community members if you happen to be in town during this week you can enjoy a quick lunch or a dinner before you hit the clubs at the various participating restaurants.

Super bummed that I will be missing in action for this one however some of my faves are participating and I highly recommend to take the advantage, the deal is claim a 2 for 1 deal by simply visiting www.nairobiburgerfestival.com to download your FREE BurgerFest Pass, visit any participating restaurant and show your pass to your waiter (on your phone, or as a print out). Most restaurants are offering 2 for 1 deals on Burger & Beer combos, however some do not stock alcohol and the 2 for 1 deal only applies on the Burger.
