Creamy Lamb Dish for a Cold Evening

There is a new hotel on Kandara Road, Kileleshwa, Nairobi, which has been open for about four months now.
Emory Hotel has a main restaurant called The Stable which serves everything from Thai, Italian, Indian, steaks, sandwiches and pizzas.
The casual restaurant, named after horse stables features simple decor. On their menu, they have include Thai green chicken, fish tempura, prawns, vegetable jalfrezi, murg makhani, palak paneer among others.
Our party of four arrived at The Stable for dinner to a spacious spot, with only a few tables occupied. We started with chicken wings, marinated in soy sauce and canola oil, baked and glazed in tomato sauce and pork ribs marinated in chilli oil, rolled in ketchup and topped with sesame seeds and chives all with fries on the side were our starters.
The pork ribs, served in generous portions were flavourful on the outside but lacked as much flavour on the inside.
For the main course, we had grilled chicken breast served with butter cream sauce, jumbo fries and vegetables, Laal Mass (lamb curry prepared in curd and Indian spices, served with naan and white rice). It is a spicy, creamy lamb dish perfect for a cold evening.
The fragrant lamb chunks were tender, pairing better with the naan than the white rice.
Dessert was banana tropicana (banana upside-down cake topped with caramelised bananas) and the opera mafacon (white sponge cake flavoured with Kenyan blend coffee topped with chocolate cream).
I enjoyed the creamy opera mafacon—a cold dessert with minimal sugar, and the Kenyan coffee flavour gave it a unique touch. The banana tropicana is a dessert ideal for sweet tooths and its warmth sent us off for the night.
