Food trucks, have been popular in the US, and they tend to have really great food. That phenomena, has arrived in Kenya. It started in Nairobi, the alchemist, located in Westlands. If you have been there you will see, that they a couple of food trucks are they.
So in Mombasa they aren’t that many, the one I know of is based in Diani and that is tuk-a-bite, that serves some really great burgers.
So when I knew one opens, that is within Mombasa city limits, trust and believe that I will be sampling the food and recommending them to you guys.
Let me introduce, you to: The SambaRio.
It has a Brazil theme to it.
The truck is colourfully decorated and can’t easily be missed.
I got the opportunity to attend the Grand Opening on Eid day, I also go to sample some of their food. If anyone knows me, I love a good burger and am also in search for a great burger joint.
The Food is amazing, especially the burger’s which were my favourite. They do have some signature meals, that are :
Beef Fries: that have pieces of beef stripes combined with the fries.
Chicken Fries: Which is the exact same concept of the beef fries but with Chicken Stripes.
Now to my favourite things on the menu, that is something am predicting that will be their biggest seller. Since Mombasa is always hot, and finding a great cold drink that will quench your thirst and keep you hydrating.
You should definitely try the: Icy Samba that comes in Twelve different flavours and in two sizes Regular and Large. This is flavoured Liquor, top over with Ice.
The second drink on the menu is Flavoured Rio’s that comes in Twelve different flavours and also in two size Regular and Large. This is Shaved Ice, with different flavours poured on top of it I personally only seen Shaved Ice on Tv, so it is a great to see it and taste in real life and it does live up to the expectations.
These drinks are colourful and refreshing, and will help combat the heat, and also leave a great taste in your mouth.
They also offer delivery services, so if don’t have the time to check them out, where they are stationed, you can get this amazing food at the comfort of your own home.
The price, is reasonable for a fast food Food Truck, that is serving great food. The staff are friendly and helpful. That makes their service great.
Here is the menu:
