One of the most recent participants into Nairobi's food scene having opened in mid-December, something like that, is Shokupan Japanese Pastry kitchen, situated in Sarit Center, Westlands. I had a companion, a devoted foodie, visiting from London having been away from Kenya for a very long time, and my objective was to organize the ideal experience for them to get a genuine preference for Kenya, and we in this way wound up looking at various cafés around the country. Shokupan is really an umbrella term for a Japanese-style bread, and the word freely means "eating bread" in English. The café (it's more similar to a bistro, really) at Sarit itself isn't completely Japanese, in the event that the menu is anything to go by. They really do have an extremely strong and dynamic pink cherry bloom tree smack in the center of the café, the ideal scenery for a date, early lunch with a companion and unending online entertainment photographs. For such a little space, the climate is extremely enchanting.

At the pastry kitchen, which is somewhat eliminated from the indoor feasting space, you can find things like four assortments of swiss rolls (they even have a matcha one which I'm passing on to attempt sometime later), three assortments of croffles which are a half breed of a croissant and a waffle, some tiramisu, milo mille crepe cake, strawberry shortcakes and that's just the beginning.

The menu is for the most part vegan and the morning meal segment midpoints Sh1,000. I was very conflicted between the souffle flapjacks (presented with strawberries, margarine and maple syrup… my mouth is watering simply fantasizing about it, yet I'm attempting to dial back on the carbs) and the acai bowl, at last choosing the last option. It was a sight to behold, that acai bowl-a frozen coconut smoothie bowl stacked with berries, banana, chia seeds, coconut shavings and broiled nuts. There's a period before the pandemic when Instagram was overflowed with pictures of acai bowls so wonderfully lovely you considered how one really might bear to eat them, and I might have quite recently seen as my new go-to detect in the city. My companion went for the avocado on toast which came presented with mixed tofu and sautéed asparagus. The plating at Shokupan is surely improved by the exquisite cutlery.

You can likewise get soups, mixed greens, sando, dumplings and mains which range from udon noodles and cushion thai to teriyaki, for a normal of Sh1200.
