Tasty Tuesday – A Coastal Street Affair

As the sun set in Mombasa town that evening, 2 ladies and one guy(see how i’m talking about us in 3rd person…cool huh? haha) made their way to this street joint whose name I can’t remember to break fast with the muslims. It was during the holy month of Ramadhan you see. We were so hungry and it was only 5.30 but we agreed to wait because the guy at the food stall said they only start serving after they break the fast at around 6.30pm. We shared a small meal of potato bitings and dates that are put out in the open for anyone to share as they break fast.

That done, we dug into out open flame grilled chicken, street style.

Meet the chef himself…ok, the cook!! (I can’t remember his name)

And the streets of  Mombasa turned it’s lights on as we turned our faces to stuff them with food. What happened that day was not eating, it was gluttony(sorry God). We needed some rest after ward.

    The ‘coastal Affair’…. by Mutua Matheka showcases Mombasa(Kenya’s coastal town) in its real sense. Most of my friends from Nigeria and diaspora who want to come visit dont have the ‘down to earth’….’community sense’ aura idea of the town….and i guess if u are looking for the homely side of Mombasa…then this pictures will help u connect ….


    Love light and most importantly EXPOSURE..
