Home Dinner with Ali

Description

Tucked away in a quiet part of Shela is my house. To get there I will take you via small alley’s, local houses, while passing donkeys and smiling kids. It will give you a quick peek into life in the little village of Shela.

I will warmly invite you into my home where I live with my wife and mother. If you would like to eat in a traditional way we will sit on the floor and eat with our hands. If that is a bit too much for you, feel free to enjoy the food on a table with cutlery.

I will let you taste a variety of traditional, homecooked Swahili food. From coconut rice, our special samosa’s, makaki (a sandwich chapatti within the middle a mix of egg, veggies and spices), to bajia’s and much more. While eating I will tell you our family history, our traditions and will answer all questions you might have. A delicious local dessert will be served at the end.

I have lived in Shela all my life and most of the local people are family or extended family. My story starts by selling my mother’s samosa’s during my lunch break from school. At that time Shela was even smaller than it is nowadays and we received many backpackers from Israel and Spain. The choice of places to eat was limited so our samosa business was booming. That is how I got my nickname Ali Samosa.

I hope we meet in person soon!

On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee.
