Godiva Dark Chocolate Pearls

My sister picked up this delicious pack of chocolate on her recent trip to Hong Kong. Chocolates like Godiva and Lindt are like the ultimate delights and this doesn't disappoint you at all. And dark chocolate in little drops is a tease for the taste buds.

They are yum and I am going to be looking out for them on my next international trip.

They are surely not available in Nairobi or Mumbai stores.

Naked Pizza opens in Nairobi

Much acclaimed across many other countries, NAKED PIZZA finally opened its first store in Nairobi at the end of 2012.

Last night, Nitika and I decided to try it out. One line review: Different and nice.

A quick check on reviews and 4square tips you know that something you surely need to try is their famous Superbiotic pizza. The first bite and you know this is not the pizza sauce and mozzarella loaded typical standard offering. A delight for your taste buds and the parsley makes it yum.

We also tried the greenhouse. Not bad.

It would have been nice to have ended the meal with a little dessert. Maybe some cupcakes or little chocolate pudding. But they don't have anything on their menu. Don't know if that's an international standard.

Oh yes! they don't serve any ketchup or mustard sauce.

They focus a lot on delivery so the outlet isn't very big but yet manages to seat about 40 people.

NAKED PIZZA is digitally very active, so if you want to know something before you order or go there give them a shout.

They also have a loyalty program in partnership with Niko Happa. Every 3 check-ins get you something NAKED. Sadly, all the scan does is make you send a pre-set SMS. Nothing fancy.

Their first and only store is in Westlands and I really do hope they come closer to my place for us to be able to order a lot more pizzas.
