Mombasa’s beach side version of the Octoberfest plays out at the ‘Chui’


(Posted 21st September 2013)

No sooner was the news about the Nairobi Oktoberfest uploaded in the morning, did emails arrive from none other than Chris Modigell and his team at the Leopard Beach Resort and Spa informing that they too will on Sunday the 22nd celebrate this greatest of all Bavarian inventions.

With the setting overlooking the spectacular Diani Beach, regularly voted one of the world’s greatest beaches, the chefs at the Chui will present a spread of authentic German foods and drinks at the cost of just Kenya Shillings 1.500 for adults or 750 for kids up to the age of 14, a bargain considering the menu on offer.

• Thueringer Bratwurst

• Nuernberger Sausages

• German Potato Salad

• Spaetzle

• Cheese Krainer

• Sauerkraut

• Gammon Ham

• Meat Loaf

• Suckling Pig

• Chicken Schnitzel

• Kassler

• Brat Haendl

• And much more…

Knowing the quality of food from personal experience, this is something not only the guests at the resort but also patrons from Diani, Ukunda and even Mombasa will be looking forward to, enjoying an Octoberfest Beach BBQ in shorts and t-shirts, and perhaps wearing a Tirolerhut for added authenticity while snacking away on grilled German style sausages and sipping pint after pint and no doubt grinning ear to ear at their designated driver.

Around the world will this weekend beer festivals commemorate the real thing, kicking off in Munich, celebrating a great German tradition of good food, good beer, Umptatah music and a fellowship of likeminded people coming together no matter the location. ‘ohhzapft ischt’. Prosit!
