I love food. Good food anyway. Literally, if anyone invites me to their place or for a house party, the first question I usually ask is, will there be food?
Arriving At Bean & Cream
We got there a little past 6 PM. I can’t recall the exact time. The cafe or is it a restaurant, has taken up residence at Sirgoi Plaza along hio street ya Yako Supermarket just before the Milk ATM at the roundabout.
I have to say that was a big plus for me. I really hate having to wash my hands. The water is cold, and I have to find somewhere to place my phone and handbag so that I don’t get any water on them. Aargh, it’s so annoying and inconvenient?. So I was very grateful for the dash of sanitizer on my hands. Sisi hao upstairs straight to the balcony.
I have a thing for balconies. You can, however, sit downstairs
Our Dining Experience at Bean & Cream Coffee House
It didn’t take long for the waitress to bring us menus compared to Keno Coffee house. I ordered rice and liver and my boss ordered chips masala. Bean & Cream prices are very favorable if you are to factor in the quality of service and the lovely ambiance.
I think wanauza chipo 150 or 200. Chips masala was 250 which is the same price you’d buy it at your not so fancy go-to restaurant.
Unfortunately, there was no liver so I changed my order to pilau. We also ordered coffee because we are sophisticated like that?. His was a latte
and mine a Caffè macchiato .
The food came shortly after and boy was it a sight to behold. My plate had a mound of pilau beautifully shaped, a cup of real sauce, salad on the side, and a huge chunk of meat.
His looked good too.
So inviting that I found myself digging in 2/3 times. I’m pleased to inform you the food tasted even better than it looked. The amount was also good coz I couldn’t clear my plate so I got the waitress to pack it up for me as take away.
My Two Cents
Overall, it was a good experience. I’d definitely go back. The lighting is beautiful, the ambience is lovely, the seating arrangement is nice, the food is impeccable, and the view & breeze from the balcony is just something to behold.
