Welcome to Rwanda, when you visit the country for the first time it is easy to get lost in its beauty, cleanliness and warm welcome. However, it is advisable to find time and try our various local foods. Rwanda is blessed with a variety of local culinary specialties and has over time adapted other East African dishes. Food is rooted in Rwandan culture.

Most restaurants serve buffet during lunch time and it mainly consists of carbohydrates such as potatoes, bananas, beans, rice, cassava, with peanut paste, meat or chicken with sauce. Sometimes the meal is accompanied by green vegetables, fruits, salads and snacks. If you are lucky, you can also taste ‘Isombe’.

Isombe is made from crushed cassava leaves, mixed with groundnut paste and served with meat or fish.

It is rare not to find French fries (also called french fries) on the menu, as Rwandans love them. On a chilly evening while you relax with friends, ‘ibirayi’ (Irish fried potatoes) is a must, along with a skewer. This Irish is peeled or unpeeled, as locals sometimes like it more with peels, but it is however washed. It is first boiled and then fried until it turns brown. Usually it is cut into two pieces. Some people prefer it with beer, but it can also be served with soda or tea.

Local food prepared at the Nutrient Rich Early Childhood Development Center. Experts advise including protein, grains or carbs and vegetables to balance your diet regardless of your dietary needs Photos by Sam Ngendahimana

Skewer or grilled beef in Rwanda tastes delicious, the meat is skewered and grilled giving it a pleasant aroma and taste. It is usually served with fries, boiled potatoes or roasted bananas.

You hear a lot of people ordering “Akabenzi”, which means fried or roast pork. The name derives from a Mercedes Benz, as its shape is known to resemble that of a pig.

“Agatogo” can mean a mixture of bananas, with peanut paste, meat or with other cooking ingredients. When left on low heat to form a thick sauce, it tastes delicious and can be served with rice or chapati.

‘Mizuzu’ (fried plantains) is another meal we enjoy here. The preparation is easy, it is peeled and sliced, then dipped in heated oil. You know it’s ready when it changes color to golden brown.
‘Ubugali’, made from cassava flour, is also an easy meal to prepare, especially if you are hungry and want something so quick in your throat. You need to boil some water and once it is ready, use a wooden spoon to quickly start mixing the flour and water. Add a handful of flour and continue mixing the water and flour until it forms a smooth paste.

It can be accompanied with green vegetables such as “sukuma wiki”, or fish curry, vegetable egg sauce, peanut stew, meat stew, etc.

All of the foods mentioned above may be available at most restaurants.

For drinks, in most bars you will find around five different types of beer, such as Turbo King, Primus, Mützig, Amstel and Skol, in large and small sizes. For soda, there is Coca-Cola, Fanta orange, Fanta Lemon, Fanta fiesta, Sprite and Krest tonic.

Milk, both hot and cold, is what some locals choose. They can take it with cassava, sweet potatoes or snacks like chapatis and mandanzi.

International cuisine

We have a number of international restaurants with tasty cuisine, some of them are Indian restaurants like Khana Khazana. They cook the best chicken tikka masala, tandoori chicken, biryan rice, fish tikka and much more. It is located in Nyarutarama.

The Zaaffran Restaurant also serves original, home-cooked Indian cuisine with well-balanced flavors and contemporary presentation. The restaurant offers meat and seafood dishes, in addition, it offers vegan, gluten-free and halal options. Besides the good tasty and spicy dishes, the customer service and the ambiance are the best.

The other best Indian restaurants at checkout are; DineDivine Resto, New Lahori Pakistani Restaurant (for Indian and Asian cuisines), Ki Asili Resto Bar & Fast Food (good for Indian and African cuisines), Delhi Darbar Kigali (Indian and Chinese) and many more.

For great Nigerian cuisine, for example, chicken jollof rice, chicken yassa, assorted meats and more, JollofKigali is the best place to go.

The best delicious Chinese restaurants are; Bamboo Rooftop Restaurant, Century Park Chinese Restaurant, Pan China, Zuri Hotels & Resorts Ltd and many more. Two things they have in common, appetizing food and a great atmosphere.

Eat healthy

Although there are a variety of foods to choose from, it is necessary to stay healthy. According to Private Kamanzi, nutritionist and dietitian at Amazon Nutrition Cabine-Gasabo, your food plate should be partitioned into proteins, cereals or carbohydrates and vegetables because this allows you to balance your diet whatever your dietary needs, by eating only local products. food available.

Emmy Ntamanga, a nutrition consultant based in Kigali says that while you may crave different types of food and drink, or no appetite to eat, he cautions against eating too much or too little habits, noting that this may affect nutrient intake, for energy, protein, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, fiber and fluids.

Kamanzi emphasizes that a balanced diet is essential every day and should include; fresh fruits such as apples, pineapples, oranges and others, fresh vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage and dodo, whole grains such as millet, oatmeal, brown rice, legumes such as beans and peas, lean proteins such as fish, beans, eggs, milk and beef, carbohydrates such as Irish potatoes, bananas.

When it comes to junk food, he says it needs to be avoided repeatedly as it lacks micronutrients, antioxidants and can cause cancer and high blood pressure in the long run.

Ntamanga says fruit should be part of his meal plan, “you can have fruit 30 minutes before or after eating and drink water at least 30 minutes after eating is healthy.”

Kamanzi recommends eating salads, such as tomatoes, onions and cucumbers every day after meals. For those who often enjoy mayonnaise in dishes or salads, he advises eating a lemon afterwards.

A NEWLY opened hotel, The Noble Cebu, is supporting the recovery of the hotel sector in the Cebu metro area, which continues to benefit from increasing occupancy.

Industry stakeholders have predicted that tourist arrivals are now on the rise as the government has slowly eased restrictions.

Noble Cebu, which opened on Sunday, June 12, 2022, is owned by the Grand Group of Companies and is its first serviced residence business in Cebu City.

“The Noble brand is part of our expansion plan for our Grand Regal Hotel and Resorts portfolio,” Ryan Bernard Go, president of Grand Land Inc., said Friday in a statement.

Go explained that Noble is the company’s limited-service lifestyle brand.

“This is a new generation of affordable luxury focused on the local living experience,” he said. “We have seen Airbnb’s growth in our projects with travelers blending business, leisure and seeking the local experience in their place of stay.”

According to Go, they saw the opportunity in this type of market and so the company decided to develop the Noble brand.

Having a management company operate the hotel has also met the need of their property buyers who are looking for someone to manage their units to fulfill their potential, he added.

Le Grand Groupe has called on Quantum Makati Residences and Resorts to manage the hotel. The Management Company is a leading serviced apartment (hotel condominium) management company established in 2000 that provides high quality services to its managed properties in the Philippines. It manages serviced apartments in Makati and other parts of the Philippines.

The 38-story hotel and serviced residences have 100 guest rooms, divided into two room categories – the Deluxe Standard Room and the One-Bedroom Deluxe Room.

The standard deluxe room of 22 square meters (m²) has two single beds with cable TV, a refrigerator and free WiFi. It is priced at P2,750 nett per night including free breakfast.

On the other hand, the one-bedroom deluxe room has a spacious 32 m². space with a living room, a dining area and a kitchenette. It also has a cable TV, fridge and free Wi-Fi. The room rate is 3,700 pesos per night and also includes free breakfast.

Serviced residence amenities include a swimming pool, gym, themed garden, children’s playroom and outdoor play area, as well as four high-speed elevators. For fitness enthusiasts, the hotel has a fitness center and also offers a jogging course.

The hotel plans to open its rooftop restaurant and resto-bar in October this year.

In addition, it has functional spaces that can accommodate 80 to 100 people and a meeting room that can accommodate up to 20 people.

Noble Cebu is strategically located just five minutes from Cebu Computer Park and close to Cebu’s business district. It would take between 25 minutes and 45 minutes to travel to and from the airport, depending on traffic conditions. (CSL with PR)

A day after the Delhi government announced its plan for the redevelopment of five popular markets in the city, the New Delhi City Council on Tuesday announced that several markets under its jurisdiction such as Khan Market, Sarojii Nagar, Yashwant Place, Khanna Market , Prithviraj Market and Netaji Nagar Market will be “completely renovated” in the next two to three years.

Satish Upadhyay, deputy chairman of the council that manages the New Delhi area, including the Lutyens area and the diplomatic enclave, said: “Work has already started at Yashwant Place market near Chanakyapuri, where a new look and a new facade are in progress. given to the market and the infrastructure is being upgraded. We are also consulting traders in Khan Market for the rejuvenation of this popular center. Stakeholder consultation is ongoing in several other locations including Prithviraj Market, Netaji Nagar and Laxmibai Nagar. Nauroji Nagar Market has already been relocated to its new avatar in Kidwai Nagar,” Upadhyay said.

In addition to revamping the 50-year-old two-story market, NDMC will also develop a seven-story Yashwant Place shopping complex near the popular shopping district. An NDMC official associated with the project said tenders had been issued for the 119 crore project. “The building will be built on the site of the former ‘Rendez-vous restaurant et bar‘ and it will have a total covered area of ​​8,900 square meters, including a three-storey basement,” the official added.

Council member Girish Sachdeva said the Sarojini Nagar market revamp plan is also in its final planning stages and will include a complete overhaul of public areas and a three-storey underground car park. On Monday, BJP council member and leader Kuljeet Chahal had opposed the Delhi government, including Sarojini Nagar, over its plan to overhaul the market.

“The Sarojini Nagar redesign proposal was discussed at the board meeting held on November 28, 2021, during which the board members unanimously agreed on the detailed project report. It would be discussed with all stakeholders before being finalized,” Sachdeva added.

Ashok Randhawa, chairman of the Sarojini Nagar Mini Markets Association, said the Delhi government and NDMC should cooperate on the redevelopment plan. “There are several issues related to basic civic infrastructure such as toilets, sanitation and sidewalks,” he added.

Upadhyay said the redevelopment of Khan market is also underway and will be resumed soon. “We have to put everyone at ease. A portion of traders disagree on the design, so a consensus is being built, but the council has given approval in principle to the plan.

Sanjeev Mehra from the Khan Market Traders Association said the NDMC should not wait for consensus on all points but immediately start working on the development of parking, sewer, drainage and of electricity. “This can only be achieved in phases. The council has 94 cr in the market corpus taken as a conversion fee and it should be used. NDMC wants to do the project in a consolidated way with a central view, but that’s not practical. The land has been available to them since 2011 for a car park project and we have demanded that a single ramp car park be developed,” he said.

In recent years, the spirit has attracted a new clientele in India. On World Gin Day, experts decipher the big trends that are here to stay


G&T of the American Saz Brewery; (right) Lychee tonic by Salt Water Café






The serious gin drinker

Gin maker Anand Virmani, co-creator of Greater Than and Hapusa, believes this is an exciting time for the industry, with spirit gaining prominence. “We’re definitely going to see a lot more limited edition gins coming out and more experimentation from distillers,” he says. Meanwhile, bartenders will also be playing with gin-based concepts.

Anand Virmani at the distilleryAnand Virmani at the distillery

Over the past couple of years, drinkers have been experimenting with gin at home. Virmani is keen to watch what happens now that bars are opening and people are drinking again. “I think the expectations of a cocktail are much higher now because people have more knowledge about these drinks,” he explains. As palates and lifestyle choices evolve, there’s a shift from classic G&T to gin on the rocks, gin soda and the martini, which he calls “a serious gin drink.” For these discerning drinkers, brands will create more sustainable gin experiences, especially in the home drinking space. “[With DIY kits and cocktail mixes] the idea is to get people to replicate these drinks for the rest of their lives, not just a one-time party ride,” he adds.

Expand the plant bank

Karina Agarwal

The great thing about gin is that it’s customizable, points out Karina Agarwal, vice president of TERAI, an Indian craft gin. “We’ve almost made it a ritual of how we drink gin – whether it’s with tonic, mixers, infusions or syrups. So there’s more investment in your drink rather than just opening a bottle of beer,” she explains, highlighting why alcohol is growing in popularity. Going forward, the revival of Indian gin will see a focus on more indigenous ingredients, she says, be it different types of fruits, spices or vegetables. “The herbal bank is going to expand and we’ll also see a lot of flavor mixers come into play, whether in the form of flavored tonics or sodas, iced teas and botanical waters.”

Gin on the go

Dhruv Sachdeva

With an increase in boutique gin options, gin drinkers are likely to be more vocal for locals, says Dhruv Sachdeva, bar manager, Perch Wine & Coffee Bar. He predicts an era of flavored gins. “People will be interested in drinking gin not just at a bar, but also pouring themselves a drink at home. Flavored gins make life easier, especially when, for example, you are having a house party and you would like to make a cocktail but you need a lot of ingredients,” he explains. The gin market will also see the rise of more and more pre-bottled gin and tonics. “Just chill it and consume it. Plus, the DIY cocktail trend is also here to stay,” notes Sachdeva.

Toning twist

Nilesh Patel

With the boom in the Indian craft gin scene, there has been an evolution in the tonic water space as well, shares Nilesh Patel, Head of Beverages (West), Impresario Handmade Restaurants. “Before it was only Schweppes, then Svami, Jade Forest and many others experimenting with flavored tonic waters such as elderflower, grapefruit, jamun and more,” he informs us. . The mixologist observes that Indian spices occupy a central place in the culture of gin. Boutique gin distillers use Indian botanicals as their base flavoring agent, and pairing these gins with Indian bar spices is a great choice.

Nardone Porsche 928 Restomod has a futuristic 1980s interior to die for https://mangomikes.com/nardone-porsche-928-restomod-has-a-futuristic-1980s-interior-to-die-for/ Wed, 08 Jun 2022 19:46:34 +0000 https://mangomikes.com/nardone-porsche-928-restomod-has-a-futuristic-1980s-interior-to-die-for/ It’s safe to say that there is sufficient High-priced Porsche 911 resto-mods.

It’s safe to say that there is sufficient High-priced Porsche 911 resto-mods. Been there, seen this – y’all can’t be the new lead singer, folks. There’s fodder in lesser-loved Porsches like Nardone Automotive did with the Porsche tourer that was too far ahead of its time: The 928.

Revealed on Wednesday, the Nardone 928 is described by its creators as “a perfect little sister to all the beautiful 911 restaurants out there”. Like all resto-mods, this is a modernization of a classic car, yet respecting the traditional form while improving the function. Nardone does this by redesigning most of the vehicle in lightweight composites, paying homage to its 16-inch “manhole” wheels with new 18-inch wheels, and restyling its headlights and taillights with a modern twist. The latter is now a single skinny cyberpunk lightbar, while the former remains the original pod-like pop-ups, though they now have the four distinct elements of the current Porsches.

I think they make the 928 look like a Budgett frog, which is appropriate given that it is Wednesday, my friends.

Its interior is updated accordingly, with a clean design and Italian Alcantara and Foglizzo leather upholstery. The center console looks like something Star Trek: The Next Generation, and would be mistaken as such by the show’s original audience, with Porsche Classic Management infotainment and Apple CarPlay built-in. (Fortunately, it’s not that new dashboard sharing system revealed this week.)

Today’s technology also underpins the chassis, with electronically controlled active suspension and variable-ratio electric power steering. Its brakes are larger for a good reason since the car’s naturally aspirated V8, whose displacement has not been specified, has been reduced to 400 horsepower. A six-speed manual transaxle (vs. the factory five) with an integrated limited-slip differential distributes power to the rear wheels, via reinforced axle shafts to handle the extra punch.

Those who already know the 928 as the underrated machine it was, having only sold around 61,000 units in its 18 years of production, will no doubt be pleased to see this poor Porsche finally shaken. The rest of us, well, we’re just happy to be in on the secret. It won’t be well looked after for long, as Nardone’s 928 will be on display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​June 23-26, where it might finally make the general public feel the way about the 928 just a select few- some always have.
