The Local Grill

Since the inception of The Local Grill in 2002, they have been fortunate enough to share their beef journey with many farmers, butchers and customers.  Following strict “field to fork” principles means that the beef is sourced from the best producers they can find, aged on the premises and cut to order.

This collaboration with beef producers has meant that over the years they have been able to showcase different breeds, beef from different regions and improve the offering year on year.

Bao Box

What is Bao Box?

Bao Box is a result of passion, they are 6 individuals who have come together with no experience in the food and beverage industry, but with simply a passion to create something unique and help various social circles rediscover fun outside technology.

They are the premier board game café in East and Central Africa and are crazy about fun and also just plain crazy. They don’t do normal, because normal is not a wall dedicated to wine, normal is not a giant chessboard by our door and normal is not tonnes of chalk on the walls. The restaurant’s name originates from the traditional Kenyan game “Bao” better known as Mancala internationally; as is evident from our name, they believe in being as Kenyan as possible, which is why they provide Maasai Shukas for the chilly evenings, most of our furniture and fittings are built locally and all our ingredients are sourced locally.

The Talisman

The Talisman Restaurant situated in an old house in Karen was originally occupied by the famous wildlife photographer and author Alan Root in his youth. Talisman was created by Ian and Charlie Cameron as a small family and friendly kitchen restaurant. The new owners took over in 2012 with a promise to maintain the values of The Talisman.

Value for the environment is part of the most important cultures at Talisman. Evident from the ambience and the look of the restaurant itself.

The restaurant is 100% plastic-free zone, maintaining an organic garden that supplies some of their fresh produce. All their vendors are vetted and they conduct hygiene tests on supplier products. They use Bamboo straws and all their water bottles are recyclable.
