Where to eat Christmas

Text: Malcolm Bigyemano

In most Ugandan languages, one does not celebrate Christmas, one
eats Christmas. This is because a big part of celebrating this and
other major holidays is the act of getting together with family, friends
and loved ones to break a little more bread than usual. While some
prefer a home-cooked meal, for others, this is a day for everyone to
kick back and relax without hustling and bustling in the kitchen.
This year the Coronavirus pandemic has changed, if not stopped most
things, but we have found ways to adapt and make the most essential
things such as working, travelling and meeting up safer. Restaurants
and hotels have been mandated by Ministry of Tourism, Wildlife and
Antiquities Standard Operating Procedures to facilitate handwashing,
social distancing by limiting capacity and frequent disinfection,
amongst others. This should make it safer for you to enjoy a special
Christmas meal more safely in places such as:

Endiro Coffee:
Though Endiro Coffee is primarily known for their locally grown,
ground and brewed coffee, they have over time gained a great
reputation for that which goes with the coffee. Aside from freshly
baked coffee-house fare such as cookies and croissants, their
Kisementi and Muyenga branches especially provide a full dining
experience from breakfast to dinner serving delicious, indulgent
continental cuisine with a local twist. This year, the holiday menu
comprises of croissant/ bagel breakfast sandwich with three options
of either chicken, bacon, or a vegetarian option of egg and cheese for
breakfast. For lunch or dinner; you may try either their rich Coconut
Fish Curry, their sweet and crispy Deep Fried Honey Chicken, or opt
for either their Grilled Chicken, or Fish Plate; with drinks going for as

low as 13,000. For dessert? Carrot cake with a scoop of vanilla ice-
cream and lemon poppy seed cake with a scoop of Vanilla ice cream.
