Kenya: Nairobi - Where to find good cheese

Hello! We've been living in Nairobi for about three months, and are from the USA, and are having trouble finding cheese we like in the normal supermarkets. Does anyone know if there is a cheese specialty shop in Nairobi that we should check out?

We do know about the Brown's Cheese factory, but it's out in Karen and I don't think we would be able to get there as often as we would like.

Any thoughts?

  1. Hi There

    Welcome to Kenya, hope you're enjoying it. It really depends on what you are looking for. The Browns farm is actually out in Limuru and you can go for a great lunch day out and buy your cheeses http://www.brownscheese.com/?lunches-...

    Other options are the Deli sections in places like Muthaiga Mini Market. There is a good Italian supermarket next to Dhanji Apartments off Gitanga Road, who also do cold cuts and olives.

    One of my favourite places to get good cheese and pate was at the Prime Cuts Deli in Village Market, howwever I haven't been there in a year so can't vouch for how good it still is

    Hope that helps
