Wine and Spice and all things Nice

Posted on April 10th, 2018

For a wine lover such as myself, it is always a pleasant surprise to find a classy, trendy, well equipped yet reasonably priced wine shop in Nairobi. And its not just wine! From good quality and exotic spices to paella kits to gin and whisky to artisan olive oils, from detox tea to “youth” tea, from entry level wines to Cavas to premium wines, and since I never grow up, my favourites – gin fusion teabags, gin botanicals and cocktail making gift sets… Makkin Gourmet shop has it all! It’s a lovely place to browse; I felt like I was in a European or South African shop, and the temptation to buy, well frankly most of it – is huge!                             After browsing for a bit, I met with the brains behind the concept – James and … Continue reading

From Suzie – pet grooming with love

Posted on April 10th, 2018

  Well – I think that the before and after photo says it all! I heard about Suzie from a friend and decided that my poor, shaggy 13 year old terrier desperately needed some TLC. At the cost of Ksh 4,000/= one of my family members was very sceptical, muttering “but we can just wash her”, under his breath. His tone changed 100% when he saw the result.

The Vietnamese Kitchen at Nothing Like It Hardy

Posted on March 6th, 2018

The Vietnamese are here… cooking, cutting, colouring, contouring – its all happening at Nothing Like It Hardy! Cut & colour? Some microdermabrasion or a tattoo? A blow-dry which will make you feel a million dollars? Why not throw in a Vietnamese foot massage, and top it all off by some delicious Vietnamese food?  I went for an early supper to try out the latest venture of the Vietnamese “gang” at Nothing Like It last week. In between cutting and colouring, blow drying, foot massaging and tattooing, the resourceful David is managing a Vietnamese kitchen with Chef Luam. The food is incredibly tasty, simple but authentic, fresh and healthy. We had some Vietnamese “pies” to start with, deep fried but filled with delicious vegetables and served with yummy dipping sauces. For main course our party tried different dishes, from curries to stir fries to Nam Pho soup with noodles and beef. … Continue reading
