We had the Nigerian Fiery Pork Stew (super spicy, but the mango salsa and coconut rice are a perfect pairing, ~$30), cauliflower (my favourite item - it was paired with a fantastic sauce, seasoning and nut garnish, ~$12), pulled pork brekkie and Utu brekkie (~$26-$28 each? might have been cheaper), soft serve (light, generous serving and delicious - but watch out, it melts fast! $12) and 4 coffees and it came to $150 total for the bill - pricey! The bold flavours are interesting, but they don't take reservations so prepare to wait. IMO: Worth a visit to try something different & decide if you like it enough to come back, but prepare your wallet and your feet.

4 ristretto extracted onto chilled Hokkaido milk. Ever tho it’s cold, it’s aromatic, and you can taste the profile of beans, strong, earthy, nutty, deep

Can’t decide between getting a cup of coffee or a chai latte? Well, worry no more, this Malindi Latte will solve your dilemma and satisfy your cravings for both beverages. Trust me, this drink is a happy marriage between an aromatic cup of coffee and an exotic chai latte. There isn’t any better way to describe it. What it actually consists of - Ubuntu espresso, softened and sweetened with creamy Hokkaido milk, spiced up with the cafe’s homemade Malindi spice syrup.

Being a fan of both chai latte and coffee, this drink was right up my alley. I liked how the drink had many layers - bitter and slightly sour from the espresso, yet sweet, milky, and also spicy, all packed into one cup! Every sip you take will hit you with so many tastes. Mmm.

The cafe was beautifully done up, you can tell a lot of thought has gone into each and every detail of its decor. I loved that the staff were also dressed in African-print clothes too. It’s great that they are quite serious about the whole African theme and are sticking to it. Though, it was a pity there was no African music playing in the background, that would’ve added the cherry on top.

We visited on a late Sunday morning and was lucky to get seats with no waiting time - we saw a little bit of a queue as we were leaving in the early afternoon. Best come a little earlier to avoid having to wait in the hot sun. Cafe is dog-friendly too with a few seats outside.

Kafe Utu’s Pulled Pork Breakfast was a very strong tasting yet refreshing twist to the usual breakfast platters we’re used to. Familiar yet unfamiliar, the usual ingredients of pulled pork, avocado, potato hash and salsa were all spiced up for that extra flavour and kick of spice. I liked the house smoked bbq sauce, it was really tasty with the pulled pork shoulder.

This is an East African spiced coconut bean stew that was super filling and extremely flavourful! Spices were quite strong (could be a little bit spicy for those with a lower spice tolerance) but its heat was softened with coconut cream, as well as the accompanying paneer and egg. It was really delicious and reminded me of a cross between curry and chilli con carne.

The large amount of beans made the dish very substantial, I couldn’t finish it on my own. You can choose to pay more to add smoked pork sausage and bacon to the dish too.

Overall - a pretty good pick if you’re feeling something spicy but want something a little bit different. Of course, if you like curry and chilli con carne, this is definitely something you should try!

The cauliflower was excellent, the plantains were flavourful but slightly soggy.
