How Nairobi's buzzing food scene is starting to rival London's 

Evening Standard logo
A cluster of filament bulbs swings above a table of scenesters busily rearranging their octopus baos for an Instagram picture. It's a scene that hardly surprises these days. Except that I happen to be in a Nairobi shopping mall - albeit at the award-winning seafood restaurant Seven. "When people think of Kenyan food it's probably of nyama choma, which is basically barbecued goat, and also ugali, which is like Swahili polenta," says Nairobi-born Kiran Jethwa, star of Channel 4's Extreme Food and Seven's owner. "When we opened this place in 2010 it was the first of its kind; the standard of restaurant you'd find in London just didn't exist over here. But there was a real appetite for good food, and over the past few years some really exciting things have started happening." Jethwa could be the Kenyan Jamie Oliver - he's effusive and charming and currently working on a project to get vegetables into the diets of Nairobi schoolchildren. The Kenyan capital has shaken off its perilous image (it wasn't called "Nairobbery" for nothing), and is fast gaining a reputation for its exciting food scene. Social media, the large number of expats based here and the rise of a well-travelled Kenyan middle-class mean Nairobi is now a city where you'll find a cornucopia of culinary experiences. You can pick up a freshly baked sourdough loaf from bakery Bbrood, order a cold-brew coffee and avo on toast from brunch spot Wasp & Sprout, and browse handmade nut butters at the Organic Farmer's Market in the suburb of Karen. Tapping into this food revolution is Nyama Mama, a new restaurant which aims to give traditional African food a modern makeover. Cocktails are served in copper mugs and the vintage car posters, wall-mounted woven fans and artfully arranged bright, geometric-print cushions could be straight out of an interiors magazine. Food is served until 4am - catering to a young, work-hard-play-harder crowd - and the menu is mainly sharing plates offering a twist on classic Swahili fare, such as ugali fries with garlic sauce, chapati quesadillas, sautéed sukuma wiki (a Kenyan version of kale) and barbecued pork belly marinated in Tusker - the local beer. "We wanted the restaurant to be an unpretentious, fun, modern-day African roadside diner," says Priyan Kolapara, director of operations at Nyama Mama. "We have a few more restaurant concepts opening in 2017, with the aim of making Nairobi the London of Africa." Nyama Mama Talking of London, Nairobi night spot The Alchemist wouldn't look out of place in Shoreditch. This outdoor bar, club and food court is strung with festoon lights and liberally sprinkled with cool kids. There's a brightly painted Routemaster, a tattoo parlour, a boutique and now a host of food trucks parked on-site. The most interesting might be Mama Rocks, set up by two Kenyan-Nigerian sisters raised in south London. They're dishing up gourmet burgers "African style", which come with chilli mango sauce or kachumbari (Kenyan salsa), and coconut chicken wings in a guava reduction. Hopping aboard the food truck trend is J's Fresh Bar & Kitchen. This is a great spot to sink a Dawa or four - Kenya's national cocktail of vodka, honey and lime juice means medicine in Swahili, so drinking several of them must be good for you. J's Fresh Bar complements its gastro-pub menu (devised by Julian Nicholls, who trained under Gordon Ramsay) with a Mexican food truck outside, and the tacos have been so popular that J's Northern Irish owner Johnnie McMillan has plans to open a Mexican restaurant in the city later this year. The Alchemist Nairobi's modern, multicultural outlook is reflected in the diverse cuisines on offer. Sushi-lovers can head to Japanese-Korean favourite Furusato, while much-loved Asian-fusion restaurant Talisman is worth a visit for its feta and coriander samosas and Chilli Passion martinis. Kenya is also known for its world-class Indian food, a legacy of the Indians who came here a century ago to build the railway linking Uganda and Kenya. The Diamond Plaza, in Nairobi's Indian Quarter, is a real gem. Chowpaty's tangy chana masala, plus a chewy, buttered naan from Anils, and a fresh ginger sugar cane juice from Fresh 'n' Healthy will keep you happy. Read more Why the Serengeti migration in northern Tanzania is unforgettable Anyone interested in the journey from farm to fork should take a day trip to Brown's Cheese, 45 minutes from the hustle of the city in the hills of Tigoni. Tours of this family-run dairy are offered Thursday to Saturday by Delia Stirling, whose parents set up production in 1979 because they missed being able to get a good brie (they were born in Kenya but their grandparents were British). Her parents brought the starter cultures over to Kenya in their suitcase and now their award-winning cheeses are sold all over the world. After a pungent tour of the factory, you sit down to a cheese-tasting lunch with organic salads. Save room for ice-creams in flavours such as salted caramel, coconut and lime. The first thing to bear in mind when eating your way around Nairobi is the traffic; set off well before you're hungry. And don't be disheartened when your Uber pulls up at a mall - this is where many of the city's best restaurants are found. But that's all part of the charm. As Kiran Jethwa points out, the Nairobi food scene has not yet hit peak hipster. "It's not like people are doing mandazi cronuts," he jokes - mandazis being deep-fried Swahili doughnuts. But it might only be a matter of time. Details: Nairobi True Luxury Travel (020 3137 1247; trueluxury.travel) offers food tours of Nairobi from £1,450pp, based on two people sharing for three nights. Includes B&B, transfers, private guiding, lunch, dinner and return economy fights from London with British Airways. magicalkenya.com Kiran Jethwa's Extreme Food returns to Channel 4 in the spring... read more

Teatum Jones opens London Fashion Week with runway celebration of diversity and disability 

Evening Standard logo
A show which sought to redefine the conventional definition of beauty opened London Fashion Week today with design duo Teatum Jones calling on a diverse cast of models which included two amputees. The dynamic line up, which also included men and women and models with fuller silhouettes as well as a host of ethnicities, were a means through which the emerging label could question mainstream image ideals. Inspired by the work of Thirties artist Hans Bellmer, designers Catherine Teatum and Rob Jones set out to examine our relationship with the human body with a collection which combined exaggerated shapes and a playful approach to silhouette. Citing the imperfect dolls and jarring imperfections of Bellmer's vision, the designers showcased bias cut dresses with uneven hems and flute sleeve blouses which were tied at the cuffs.

Sigala, tour review: Shy king of his carnival 

Evening Standard logo
Too shy to appear in the videos for his top 10 singles, Bruce Fielder was also a largely peripheral figure at his own gig. When the DJ and producer from Norfolk known as Sigala emerged on the beach shack stage set, he promptly took his place behind the keyboards. For anyone expecting a glorified DJ set, though, his club show was a revelation. The performance boasted lively dancers, several vocalists, a stern MC and a band that transformed the house tunes into a carnival-style celebration. It got off to a misfiring start with Only One, a surprise flop that's brought an end to Sigala's run of hits. But that soon felt like an anomaly when teenage singer Imani Williams shimmied her way through their sunny collaboration Say You Do. For the DJ interlude, Fielder whipped up the crowd by raiding the Nineties with blasts of Jump Around, Insomnia by Faithless and even Nirvana, though Kurt Cobain may have been turning in his grave when the raving audience were pelted with beach balls during Smells Like Teen Spirit. When the band reconvened, Fielder showed off his ability as a pianist alongside vocalist Bryn Christopher on a smouldering Sweet Lovin'. The No 1 Easy Love, featuring a Jackson Five sample, was a feelgood finale that had Fielder out front and high-fiving fans. As the mastermind behind this uplifting performance, he deserved his moment centre stage.... read more

Fashion must unite to show London's still open to the world, says Caroline Rush 

Evening Standard logo
The fashion world must put on a "united" front in the wake of Brexit and divisive politics around the globe to prove that London is a city of "openness" and "multiculturalism", an industry chief urged today. As the biggest names in fashion descend on the capital for London Fashion Week, Caroline Rush, head of the British Fashion Council, said while the weak pound had boosted "shopping and spending", she was concerned about the wider impact the referendum vote could have. She said she "very much hoped" London would remain a centre for fashion and creative arts but insisted "unity was key" in times of "uncertainty". The BFC chief executive said: "I very much hope that Brexit will make no difference. London is very culturally open. We are known for that around the world. We have to, above all else, ensure that message of openness and unity is heard and resonates. As long as we continue to be culturally open, I hope we continue to attract the level of international talent we have done for years." Asked if London was an "unstoppable" fashion force despite Brexit, she said: "I very much hope that is the case." Read more How fashion became a political soapbox for anti-Trump protesters Five thousand guests - including press and buyers from more than 49 countries - are expected to attend Fashion Week, which runs until Tuesday at The Store Studios off the Strand. There will be 51 catwalk shows and 32 presentations, with 50 per cent of the designers on show born outside the UK. Rush said unity was also an important way of standing up to the Trump administration, adding: "Fashion wants to show that we are united and we are as one. London is one of the most diverse and multicultural cities on Earth. We want to show that off." Opening London Fashion Week this morning Natalie Massenet, chairwoman of the British Fashion Council, announced the BFC's support of the Business of Fashion's Tied Together campaign, calling on all involved in LFW to wear a white bandana on their wrist to show unity and togetherness in "a time of political uncertainty". Dame Natalie said: "We are here to kick off London Fashion Week and to celebrate the collections and showcase creativity turning the wheels of our fashion business. "In a time of political uncertainty, that creativity will be channelled into fashion statements of a different kind. It is an understatement to say that we are living in a time of upheaval. We are seeing seismic political changes, not just here with Brexit, but in the US and in Europe. Change can be challenging at times but in this time of extraordinary innovation, we will thrive." She added: "Putting a spotlight on creative businesses at London Fashion Week is essential. Creativity, innovation and business but also inclusiveness are at the heart of British fashion. "This is the start of London Fashion Week where all eyes are on London. We encourage the industry to show the world we stand for inclusivity and humility. Let's make some positive fashion statements together."... read more
