Sunday is slowing turning into my new Friday! I have started a new fitness routine which involves a crazy workout session scheduled every Saturday morning thus Friday finds me at home drinking some hot chocolate and doing some much needed reading! As a result, I am becoming unusually excited about going out on Sunday’s but for a chilled out session and getting home by 9pm.
Last Sunday afternoon found me at Palm Cafe & Lounge located at Heri Heights apartments on Kolobot Drive Off Arboretum road. After checking out their website, I realized they have a poolside area, Sunday barbecue sessions and a simple cuisine which was just what I was looking for. Sadly on this particular Sunday, there was no barbecue, and it started raining as soon as we got there! But that didn’t stop us from having a good time.

Palm Cafe & Lounge has an indoor dining room, bar area, an outdoor terrace, their lounge corner with three sunken sofas or you can choose to sit by the pool side enjoying your glass of wine like we did.
We ordered from the Chef’s special menu (advantage – it is slightly cheaper as opposed to ordering the same item on their regular menu). My date had pork chops with golden apple sauce….. The apple sauce brought just the right kick to the meal although the fries could have been more crunchy.
Is there anything better than a beautifully cooked steak? I had the T-Bone steak on a bed of vegetables with garlic butter served with vegetable rice. Everything on my plate was delicious and would totally recommend this meal.
Our total bill for two came to Sh2020! We each had a drink and shared zesty fish fingers as a starter. Such a great treat on a budget…..we saved Sh813 with DisCoucher!!!
