The rub they season these steaks with gives it an odd tinge, but many taste testers raved about this. Like the other dishes here, it’s mildly spicy. For what you pay, you can get yourself some steak tips with interesting sides, and that’s worth exploring in our book.

Another spicy dish, but at least this one was more mild in the spice department. It was a good portion size, too. We were all surprised by how many (large) shrimp was on the skewer. For the money, you have a small meal.

Tusker Lager (4.2% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 o.z., $9.00 for 12 o.z.

From Kenya Breweries Limited: “Tusker Lager is brewed from 100% African ingredients that are all locally sourced; the barley is from the Savannah and the Maasai Mara, the spring water is from the Aberdare Mountains and all the yeast is developed locally which means that you feel closely connected to the brand’s origins and roots.”
