The Kenyan cuisine is like a melting pot of different cultures and traditions: Arabic, English and Indian. Is various and spicy but not too hot. Generally speaking during a holiday in Kenya it is suggested, to try dishes based on local fresh seafood. Among the meat dishes, famous and highly appreciated are those prepared with lamb, often with yoghurt, and not to miss, the grilled meat called nyama choma. Among the most common local vegetables there are: kidney beans, potatoes, peas and onion.
Kenyan cuisine often uses coconut milk to enrich the flavour of the local dishes, soups included. Not to miss is the coconut cream served in coconut shells and dusted with cinnamon. Banana is also used in meat and fish dishes.
Among drinks a special note should go to the local tea and coffee, as well as to palm wine, papaya wine and mango distilled liquor.
