Hold on to your chopsticks because it turns out that Kenyans have a hankering for some fishy delights! Move over chicken, burgers, and pizza – sushi has claimed its place in the hearts (and stomachs) of the people. In fact, according to the latest data from Uber Eats, our friends in Kenya can’t get enough of that delectable Japanese cuisine with Salmon Sushi reigning supreme as the nation’s favorite dish.

This revelation comes just in time for International Sushi Day when we commemorate the greatness of this culinary masterpiece. Uber Eats took it upon themselves to dig deeper into our sushi preferences unveiling the crème de la crème of sushi and sashimi. It seems that Kenyans have a serious soft spot for salmon as the top three dishes include Salmon Sashimi and Salmon Futomaki. And let’s not forget about their trusty sidekicks: maki, sashimi, and tuna. It’s a full-on fish fiesta!

Kui Mbugua, the UberEats Kenya General Manager, chimed in on the matter saying, “When it comes to satisfying their cravings for international cuisine while still sticking to their local favorites, Kenyans are turning to sushi as a go-to option. It’s the perfect combination of healthy and delicious.”

Uber Eats has been doing a phenomenal job of connecting hungry customers with their favorite restaurants and merchants across various cities in Kenya. Over the past five years, they’ve witnessed a remarkable surge in the number of partners joining their platform allowing customers to indulge their sophisticated palates. So whether you’re craving sushi or something entirely different, Uber Eats has got you covered.

Nairobi residents are spoiled for choice when it comes to ordering sushi. Some of the hottest spots in town include Furusato, Shokudo, Ocean Basket, The Phoenician, and INTI. And if that isn’t enough to whet your appetite, numerous new businesses have sprouted up over the past year adding even more tantalizing options to the mix.

Kui couldn’t contain her excitement as she exclaimed, “The rise of Japanese cuisine in Kenya has been truly remarkable and we can’t wait to see what other culinary adventures await our customers. We’re constantly expanding our range of cuisines on the app so get ready for even more mouthwatering options!”
