Lamu's kitchen is well renomated. Fresh fish is the thing to eat. So fresh!

Chapati in the Lamu way and dishes cooked in Coconut juice
and fresh lime juice is something to long for.



Sometimes we set the "table" in the court yard the swahili way.
Lovely to eat under Orion!




We grow our own coconuts



Here is the garden dining place.



Or we set the table outside in the court yard under the starry sky.


bakery

Lamu Bakery is owned by a famous Lamu Imam and poet



Out on a sailing trip you will fish yourself and cook it on char coal.




Lamu mangoes are famous and lobster cooked in coconut sauce mmmm!


KARKADEH

is the name of our small restaurant with room for 12 people max.




Here is the Karkadeh flower, a Hibiscus type flower
(Roselle- Hibiscus Sabdariffa),
a small plant of great importance for making tea and juices.

It grows wild on our shamba,
is very nutritous, helps decrease arterial blood pressure
and is much used in Ayur Veda medicines.
