Vegan Food Reviews
I have been trying some great new foods from places that offer vegan option in Nairobi and I thought it might be fun to share some reviews with you guys. I know a lot of my audience is not from Kenya and I thought you guys might be interested to see what a vegan Kenyan would eat when going out. I have been really impressed by how many vegan options are available in Kenya now considering that meat and dairy are a big part of most peoples diets here. However, I think more people are exploring veganism and vegetarianism these days and even if they aren’t fully plant based a lot of people seem to be trying to eat less meat and dairy products. Recently, I heard about this place called Falafel House and noticed that they had a lot of vegan options other places did not offer. In fact, it had the one thing I had been craving for quite a while now- the beyond burger! For that reason alone, my sister and I decided to get some burgers. They have two locations- one in Sarit Center and one in Village Market. Both menus seem to have different options so be on the lookout for that if you do decide to order from this place. Falafel House is fully vegetarian but offers vegan options.
The FH Classic Burger
I decided to get the vegan version “FH Classic Burger” since this comes with the Beyond patty. I got two and both with one regular side. The cost of each burger was KSH1,600 which I thought was pricey for a burger but I also understood since Beyond Meat products are expensive. It came with grilled onions, gherkins and what I’m assuming is some kind of vegan sauce (probably vegan mayo). The burger looked and smelt fantastic and tasted even better than I could have imagined. The buns were also really soft and delicious. I really liked the flavours although I wish they had more options for toppings for the burger because I really like my burger with pickles and tomatoes and stuff. This one was a little small and didn’t have too much in it for a burger that costs so much. As I mentioned, I got two burger and I picked regular potato fries with one and sweet potato fries with the other but unfortunately they gave me regular fries with both and gave my sister sweet potato fries by mistake when she had ordered the regular fries. It wasn’t a big deal and we just shared the fries anyway but I just thought I would mention it.
Get Beanie Burger
My sister ordered the “Get Beanie Burger” and she absolutely LOVED it. It looked so delicious and according to her it tasted fantastic too. She also really liked my sweet potato fries she had accidentally gotten and after trying them I have to say they were better than the regular ones even though the regular ones were great too. She had plenty of toppings which I was a little jealous of lol. Her burger cost KSH900 which was not too bad for a burger with a side. She did say that it was a little small though and a bit dry since they had not added any sauces or anything to her burger. I couldn’t try her burger because it had avocado and I’m allergic.
Overall, I did enjoy the food a lot but I think it was a little pricey so when I get it in the future it will be more of a treat rather than something I order often. I think this place is the only one that offer Beyond Meat options in my area so that is pretty great but they should definitely get some more toppings options lol! I will 100% order from them again though.
Have you ever tried a Beyond burger? Or any Beyond Meat products? If so, did you like them? Let me know in the comments below because I really want to know especially from people who have eaten meat burgers. How does Beyond burgers taste to you? I’m very curious to know!
