Take your tastebuds on a trip to Kenya.
It’s almost unbelievable that up until April 16, when Swahili Street Food opened up on Skånegatan, there were no Kenyan restaurants anywhere in Stockholm. Owner Rukia Mazera saw that there was nowhere serving the delicious flavours of her home country and set out to create a place for Stockholmers to enjoy Kenyan cuisine.
Whether you’re hankering for a taste of home, dreaming of a past holiday in Kenya or have never tried Kenyan food before, there is now a place for you to go and enjoy yourself.
So what kind of food are we talking about here? You can expect fresh flavours, including dishes like samosas, and fish with kachumbari, which is a delicately spiced salad made from chopped tomatoes, onions and chilli peppers. You can wash it all down with an authentic Kenyan beer, like a Tusker lager, which we can confirm is delicious.
If all of this sounds familiar, you may well have eaten Rukia Mazera’s delicious Kenyan food before because last year the team had a food truck in Haninge, and people were so fond of the food that they’ve now moved to a pop-up on Skånegatan. The hope is that they will soon find permanent premises in Stockholm. You can book a table on the website, but you’d better act fast because this place is incredibly popular right now, and so it should be!
