The heavy afternoon down pour turned into a very chilly evening. But that could not deter the determined Kampala foodies and partiers as they turned up in big numbers for the September edition of the East African Meat Carnival on Saturday.
The guests who graced the event were left fully satisfied by super Chef Mark Kaheru’s meaty treats inspired and cooked with delicious East African recipes as he did his thing on the kitchen table.
While on the turn tables, DJs Benon and Mujo were doing their magic spinning music from across the region with the oldies warming up the fans the more as it brought back memories while waiting for their Nyama choma.
This time round, the fresh twist to the September edition was that Chef Kaheru and his troopers cooked up a mouth-watering storm with chicken straight from the popular food spot, Namawojjolo and goat meat from Lukaya along Jinja high way.
The aroma for starters was pulling guests in large numbers to the serving point where the servings were in plenty as food inspired from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda powerfully took over the breathing atmosphere.
This caused a storm at the Nyama Choma serving are as at The Gardens, Najjera turned out to be big fans of the ‘Mutura’ a Rwandan delicacy and the ‘Pig Ears’ that ran out before sundown and were washed down with a cold Tusker Lite, a first as revealed by Kaheru.
The main item of the delightful evening was of course munching and drinking and we can tell the Najjera chill spot has now become a favourite for revelers looking for a good time with friends and family.
“When people come out to The Gardens, they get a chance to relax and enjoy themselves with great Utake music and also try out different foods and drink, it’s always a delightful and cheery experience,’ said Kelvin Gumisiriza, Tusker Lite Brand Rep.
And with music still blurring in the wee hours of Sunday morning, sounds of East African music spiced with some Congolese Rumba and Zouk still continued shaking the grounds as the party continued.
