One day during my trip to Mombasa, Kenya, I had a chance to hang out with Chef Ali Mandhry, a local from Mombasa, host of a variety of tv shows, writer, and an all around amazing guy to hang out with and eat with!
We first stopped off at Mama mbaazi, a lady who sells Mombasa style pigeon peas in coconut milk to be eaten with mahamri. We saved it for later when we returned to the house, but it was excellent, and amazing combination.
We then continued on to the main market in downtown Mombasa, a bustling fruits and vegetables market, full of friendly vendors, and all the ingredients you need to cook Kenyan Swahili food - which is a mix of Arabian, Indian, and local dishes. The main dish that we bought all the ingredients for was to cook a dish called samaki wa kupaka (grilled fish with coconut sauce). The fish was grilled first, then Chef Ali cooked a coconut milk sauce with garlic, curry powder and lime juice to baste onto the grilled fish. It was sensational.
Azad Ice Cream Shop - First, before getting back to the house to start cooking, we stopped for a classic Mombasa faluda.
The entire meal Chef Ali and Fiza cooked was incredible. I especially enjoyed the Swahili grilled fish and the rice pilau.
Huge thank you to Chef Ali Mandhry for this amazing day of Swahili Kenyan food in Mombasa, Kenya! Again, check out Chef Ali’s channel ( and Instagram (

    my advice to chef ali to cook the fish, you have to marinate the ingredients together with the lemon juice to make the Spices mixed as a morocco way .

    Mark I loved the fact that you explored kenya, but you're yet to visit the South Side of Kenya, the Highlands of kisii, lakeside of kisumu, Lake Victoria, Western Kenya for the luyha culture and food. Their's a lot to explore in Kenya. Next time you are around, let me know i would love to host you in the kisii Highlands and on our way their we can stop at narok for the masai authentic food. You will love the experience

    it got to me that he said coastal kenya has so much culture...why do we other tribes in kenya hate our culture so much we do our best to bury it..there's nothing in mainland kenya except from wildlife that makes you feel like you are in africa to experience african culture..then we cry when an israeli politician insults us that we have no culture....we lost our sense of community architecture, we dont even eat our traditional food....we should aim to be more african than a poor rip off america...tourism dropeed cause we dropped our culture..we arent the only continent that has wildlife and beaches

    How do you stay so thin?: I weigh over 300lbs, I am 6'2" but if I was eating like you I would be rolling from food stall to restaurant. I have seen you eat many of the foods you eat in Thailand. I was stationed there in 1973-74 and absolutely fell in love with the food. I have made it to quite a few of the countries you have been and you and you wife and friends eating remind the wife and I of our many travels.
