Nyama Mama

After working as a cook in exclusive Safari lodges around East and West Africa, Mama has gone back to her childhood roots preparing home-style dishes with a modern eclectic twist.

Nyama Mama is an unpretentious, fun, modern day African roadside diner. Inspired by the taste of the continent, especially Kenya, Mama’s food is a burst of flavour; taking common dishes and transforming them into something contemporary. When Mama was on the dusty road, she would mix magical spicy and fruity potions for her friends, using fine African ingredients and special homemade infusions. Her cocktails are one-of-kind served in iconic metal Vikombe.

Nyama Mama’s aim is to provide a sustainable livelihood for this industry. The décor at her Delta Towers home is inspired by Mama’s travels across Africa, pulling together vibrant colours, fabrics and nostalgic adornments. From splashes of Kitenge fabric, old school leather couches to the series of artworks referencing the streets of Kenya, Mama’s vision is about creating a space that brings out Kenya’s vivacious urban culture and celebrating our roots.

And Mama wants you to feel right at home at your grandma’s place. Throughout the space you get a glimpse into Mama’s kitchen from packets of Unga (Kenyan flour), cooking fat, crates as well as pots and pans.

Karibu nyumbani, as Mama likes to say.
