Kenyan fast food (Mark)

On almost every street corner in Kenya, maize is roasted over charcoal stoves. In Swahilli it’s called Mahindi Choma (Roasted Corn). I’m not sure why it took us so long to try it out, but after getting it in Mombassa, Bebeth got hooked on it. In the major cities like Nairobi and Mombassa you can get the corn with hot chilli’s, salt, and lime (right up Lisa’s alley). Personally I only really like it when it’s got the hot chilli’s on it. Bebeth on the other hand loves it any which way she can get it. While we were living in Nairobi, Bebeth would often treat the whole office to corn, kinda like bringing in doughnuts. The great thing about corn over doughnuts is that corn doesn’t raise your cholesterol.
