Hot chocolate drink with cayenne pepper and other spices, which leaves a smooth spiced after taste. I really like it here with the unique African theme.

Somewhat like a cross between a chai latte and cafe latte, the Malindi Latte is a creamy milk-based coffee with hints of African spices. The spices aren’t super strong, so they don’t overpower the coffee but complement it rather well to bring out the nutty notes of Kafe UTU’s house blend. A nice change from regular latte when you’re visiting Kafe UTU.

The Bidibado is Kafe UTU’s version of mocha. Unfortunately, they don’t have skim milk here, but they do offer non-dairy alternatives soy and oat milk. I opted for soy milk at no additional charge, yay!

This is one really pretty beverage. I love the effort in the latte art, as well as the peanut butter-lined rim studded with spices, nuts and chilli flakes. This lends a nutty and spicy flavour to the beverage, which is honestly more chocolatey than coffee-like. The Bidibado will likely satisfy chocolate lovers, casual coffee drinkers and Instagrammers, but not those who need a serious cuppa. At $6, I think it’s not too bad for this gorgeous drink, so it’s worth ordering at least once :)

A creamy one from @kafeutu, if you are having it in the Kafe itself, they even give you two espresso cube to keep your coffee cold and strong! A good one to keep food coma at Bay.

This traditional fish curry with red snapper and coconut rice was pretty good - I really liked how rich and well-flavoured the curry was, and it packed a significant amount of spice (not complaining here, I love spicy food - but those who can’t tolerate spice, maybe you can consider other options). My only gripe is that the fish wasn’t in a large enough portion to match the price tag ($29) and the fish wasn’t mindblowingly soft or fresh either. Overall, a pretty good dish for sharing, but maybe not the most value for money.

We got this as a starter to share and it was pretty well done and also satisfactorily portioned. I really appreciated the unique dining concept here and the authentic recipes passed down by the owner’s mother from his time in Africa. It was refreshing having lunch in town that wasn’t a run of the mill brunch situation, along with attentive service and three floors of great ambience and decor.
