One of the things I have been yapping about literally since the inception of my blog is about how much I love mangoes! I. LOVE. MANGOES. They are literally the best fruit in the world and all other fruits only wish they were on the same level of greatness. Every mango season, not only do I binge eat them , but I have a ball experimenting with this fruit in a variety of recipes. I love me some mango flavor in my food and the second mango recipes 2019 is my tilapia burger with my mango tartar sauce! How delicious does that sound! The recipe is amazing and the corresponding YouTube video is just as bomb! I guarantee you, It tastes as amazing as it sounds!!!!
Last year, Heron Portico threw a challenge to myself and other food bloggers in the country to create a Kenyan Themed burger. For various reasons, we were not able to rise to the ocasion then. I couldnt because I had so much going on and I was still singlehandedly polishing up on my then 3 month old blog. Pendo la mama made her Kenyan themed burger a couple of weeks ago and she totally aced it! I have always looked up to her and I feel after she took it up (so well I might add) that gave me the courage to make my own Kenyan Burger.

For my burger, I decided to focus more on what I call the Tastes of Kenya. The things/ foods you eat that will always remind you of Kenya; remind you of home no matter which corner of the world you have this. Flavors that will give you a taste of our beautiful coast, and those that reminded me of family kuku barbecues in majestic Maragoli hills of Western Kenya. On the eve on Jamhuri day, I present to you my Kenyan Burger: Kachumbari and Kuku choma burger with a sweet and sour Ukwaju sauce.
