We will start off in one of the more well known streets of the Old town. From there, we will enter the maze of the alleys and narrow streets to experience not only unique food stalls, but also to meet the closely knit community in these streets. I will introduce you to our various dishes, and talk about their significance and relevance to our culture. You will also see the community in action, as the daily life unfolds in the old town.
i am Hussein, I have worked in the hospitality industry for the past 5 years in Mombasa and in Dubai. Being a host and a cultural ambassador is my passion, and helping my guests maneuver the incredible cultural maze of Mombasa is my work. I was born and raised in the streets of Mombasa tracing back to eight generations in Mombasa Old Town. Food has been the focus of my tours, as it is the best medium to understand Mombasa, it's history and significance. If you are visiting Mombasa, i would love to take you around on a discovery tour of our town's best kept secret food corners.
