International eating isn't a dangerous adventure through customs, where the customs officer asks you to open your bag, and you refuse, which prompts him to teach you about manners by reading select Goofus and Gallant comic strips. Experience international travel the easy way with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Kenyan fare and drinks at Kenyan Café and Cuisine in Anaheim.
Kenyan Café and Cuisine expands palates with an authentic menu of traditional Kenyan fare, accompanied by a handy glossary to explain Swahili culinary terms. Start with a pair of samosas, triangular treats that airmail seasoned ground beef to waiting mouth hangars in a crusty pastry envelope ($3.50). A succulent goat stew expands tongue horizons with a blend of Kenyan spices and herbs ($14.50). Barbecue connoisseurs can check Kenya off of meat-filled bucket lists with the ng'ombe choma, barbecued beef served with an East African salsa ($11.50). A choice of two sides such as collard greens, cabbage, and cooked rice escorts mouths on African sojourns while bodies wait wordlessly at libraries and mime dinner parties. Vegetarians have plenty of options (priced at $8.50 each), which pile vegetables and lentils onto foundations such as chapati flatbread or a hearty cornmeal mush called ugali, a Kenyan menu staple. Wash down new culinary experiences with the familiar comfort of chai or green tea by the cup ($1.50–$2) or pot ($3–$4).
Kenyan Café and Cuisine
At Kenyan Café and Cuisine, chefs craft authentic Kenyan recipes from scratch, flavored with aromatic spices from Africa, India, and the Middle East. Crispy samosas shine in the menu's appetizer section, followed by main courses such as stews studded with lamb or fish and vegan collections of lentils and greens. Diners can eat with their hands, using polenta-like ugali as a malleable utensil, or dine with knife and fork as they avail themselves of the restaurant's Kenyan beer and flat-screen TVs.
