The tastiest, juiciest combination of weird yet wonderful
A restaurant with a superhero theme? In Nairobi? I told my best friend: say less. Intentionally avoiding the urge to Google the restaurant to oblivion, I got ready to meet my friend for drinks and maybe a small bite. I wasn't feeling all that hungry and neither was she, so I was happy to just have some wine, enjoy a nice view and great company and call it a night.
On my way over there, my partner issued opposing instructions: "You're going to want to try the food and cocktails". I told my bestie of these new developments and we decided we would do just that: try the food and cocktails.
After I was done gushing over the comic book, superhero-themed menu, we ordered some cocktails and spent the time in between ordering and receiving our drinks, making futile attempts at picking our jaws up from the floor, owing to the stunning views and decor of the restaurant.
I am Groot cocktail on the left, Trump's Wall on the right
I thoroughly enjoyed taking down Trump's Wall and there's really no need to thank me. After her second sip to confirm she had not in fact imagined the magnificence of her drink, my best friend marched up to the bartender and said, "I have a problem with this drink." Looking downtrodden and perplexed, the bartender Chris waited for my friend to continue: "this is the best cocktail I have ever had." I mirrored my friend's sentiments because I was seriously considering whether it was worth it being a responsible adult when faced with such mixological excellence.
You already know by now, I love it when my eyes get to feast just as much as my stomach. The ambience at Hero was an exquisite attack of colours and light reflections - a few of my absolute favourite things.
