From spicy maki rolls to skillfully sliced sashimi, sushi is an evolving favourite for Kenyans looking for a delicious takeaway alongside the typical chicken, burger, pizza and African cuisine meals.
According to the latest data from Uber Eats, the healthy and traditional cuisine of Japan has earned a spot among Kenyans’ top meals, with Salmon Sushi named as the country’s favourite.
This International Sushi Day, Uber Eats has taken a closer look at our sushi preferences, revealing the top ranked sushi and sashimi. It seems that Kenyans have a taste for salmon, as the top three dishes include Salmon Sashimi and Salmon Futomaki. Paired with these mains, the popular side orders are maki, sashimi and tuna – a true celebration of fish.
