"All you can Eat" Game meat Jul 31, 2009
Nairobi also hosts one of th worlds only "Canivore" restaurants called the Canivore: It is known as Africa's greatest easting experience. Here you can eat all the meat you want from all kinds of game animal. The meat is as tasty as the expectation of it. On arrival at the Canivore you have to walk down a ramp to the reception area where the welcoming team dressed in colourful African attire will welcome you and find you a seat. To dine at the Canivore one must love meat because that is all you will have here, the meat is roasted in huge charcoal pits or grills if you want to call them so, the smell of the different meats fill the air as one anticipates the taste. The roasted/ barbequed meats are called "Nyama Choma" and most of the people who come for this experience will choose the "all you can eat", I recommend you do so to get the best for your money. The sitting are is out door under a huge tented shade, the chairs specially crafted for canivore. The selection of meats include Zebra, Pork, Buffalo, goat, impala, kob, crocodile, Waterbuck, Hartebeast, jiraffe . . . much of the attraction is in th elocal game meat. For the fussy eater, there is plenty of chicken, lamb and pok to choose from. The waiters bring the hot roasted meats on skewers right from the fire to the table and is sliced on individual plates. The plates are cast iron plates that are kept warm to keep the meat heated up as you eat. Canivore is one of the most popular restaurants chosen for safari experience in Kenya. The lunches are cheaper than the diners at least the last time I was back in Nairobi I at Canivore twice. My luch cost a little over $25 including taxes and at dinner it was a litttle over $28 with taxes, this was for the "all you can eat" platter.

For a dinner place it is on the pricey side for the locals, but for the tourists it is worth every penny, you have never easten like this: I remember eating so much that I di not eat meat again for a month after. But each time I return to Nairobi and over night, I make a stop at Canivore.

It is a very busy reataurant day and night, no special reservations needed, they will seat you as long as you are patient. There is no hurry in Africa, the swahili say.
