Ce vei face

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 7 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. watch a video vlog about the street food tour here https://youtu.be/ADr35OEKt4c

Unde vei fi

On this food journey, we will start off with the lighter fares first and build our way to heavier dishes, concluded with a dessert. We will begin with the unique stalls serving seasonal grilled dishes, work our way to the Swahili baked good, followed by seasonal legume dishes served with chapati. We have the option of concluding our journey with homemade ice cream or Swahili Chai or Swahili Coffee.

Hussein was the absolute best. He is more than knowledgeable. My friend and I received a great history lesson. Let’s not forget the food. The food was too good. Our first stop could have been our last stop. I could have stayed there forever. As the tour progressed, the food never disappointed. And being able to watch the preparation was also a highlight. He’s well known in the community and he knows “his stuff”. We felt safe and were able to experience the hidden gems of Old Town. Would come back again and again!

Great experience, Hussein is a very charming and well spoken individual with a lot of knowledge of the area. He took us to many street vendors that were amazing and all the food we tried were very unique to traditional Swahili taste. If we are not mistaking we stopped at about 7-8 different venders that were selling unique dishes. We also got a nice cultural tour while walking around as Husain was explaining to us about every location and unique mosques that were in the area. We can say we started this trip as as Husain being our host but left as he was a friend. If we are ever back in Mombasa we would reach out to Husain again.

Great way to see Old Towne. Food was fantastic and so plentiful that we had to reduce portions to make it through the full tour.

Hussein is an incredible guide - would definitely recommend this tour to anyone new to Mombasa. He is friendly and very willing to personalise the tour to tailor to your preferences - I had a few things I particularly wanted to try and he made it happen so seamlessly. Learned so much about the beauty of Swahili culture too. We’re really glad that we were able to book this tour last minute!

We had such a great time Hussein. As a local, he showed us round his neighbourhood and we felt comfortable and safe exploring the backstreets. There was sooo much food! All very different and delicious, from food stalls that we would otherwise be hesitant to visit. Really relaxed, delicious tour :) so glad we did it. Thank you, Hussein!
