9/27/09: Nairobi, Kenya
Tonight we ate at Carnivore. Though it doesn’t call itself a Brazilian steakhouse, that’s pretty much what it is. Kevin ate his body weight in meat, and I ate just a tad more. We had: sausages, spare ribs, steak, turkey, chicken gizzards, chicken wings, chicken legs, pork chops, more pork, lamb chops, more lamb, and ostrich meatballs. And then! We had dessert. Strawberry sorbet for me, chocolate ice cream for Kevin.
[Side note: I never realized how cheap Kevin really was until today, when I literally had to take his fork and knife away from him as he kept sawing through his last piece of steak, simultaneously chewing and announcing to the table, “I think I’m going to barf.” He was that determined to get his money’s worth. Disgusting, and yet, somehow admirable.]
I also had a Sprite, which means that my soda intake for this year has doubled since we started the trip. Ok, ok, fine, I admit it. I had a Coke in Jinja. Ok, two. And maybe I split a Coke with Kevin earlier today. So really my soda intake for this year has quintupled since we left. I don’t feel guilty. No, not at all. That’s why I’ve spent the last five sentences talking about a subject you care nothing about – because I don’t feel guilty at all.
Anyway, our three-course meal (we started out with some kind of soup that came in a cup with two little handles – very cute) plus a drink each plus tax and tip and whatnot came out to the shockingly low price of $62. That means once we finally finish digesting all of this food sometime next year, we’ll be back.
Picture of the Day: This is for all you New Jersey-ians – there’s ShopRite in Uganda!
