Feeling lazy at the office? Super busy at work? Dreading that meeting in the boardroom in an hour? Short lunch? Irritated with slow service in restaurants? Bored of the same food? That’s exactly how I felt yesterday.
Hungry and feeling famished, I sat in my squeaky chair staring at my computer and asked myself, “What the hell am I going to do for lunch today?!”
ENTER: Eat In
Most of us have used the reservation services or taken advantage of discount deals from Kenya’s favourite restaurant guide, Eat Out. Now, for people like myself, who sometimes just don’t want to leave the office, you can experience Eat Out’s new Eat In service – restaurant quality food in the comforts of your computer and colleagues!
Spez – Taking catering to the offices
Nowadays, with the growing competition in Nairobi and the ever-evolving palette of Kenyans, it’s not enough to simply have good food. Specializing in classic and modern cuisine, Spez is one of the few Kenyan catering businesses that have embraced the importance of consistent and quality service.
From specialty sandwhiches to healthy salads to snacks to everyone’s favourite Chinese classics to filling pastas to burgers to hearty dishes, even if you’re Kenya’s most picky eater, you will definitely find something that will “tantalize your taste buds.”
Outfitted in classic brown paper bags and modern stickers, your lunch arrives still warm after ordering an hour earlier with condiments and cutlery, just like you had expected.
Generous portions and priced affordably for a weekly splurge, it’s a no brainer that I’m going to be ordering from Spez soon!

Straight-forward order and confirmation process.
Simply but beautifully packaged.
Chefs Salad: Chicken, bacon, sweet corn, croutons, tomato, lettuce, cucumber and grilled peppers. Packed full of ingredients, 2 containers of salad dressing and not skimpy on the bacon – this is definitely a great light lunch choice.
Thai pork spare ribs: A great snack or starter if you’re feeling like you need to indulge. Sweet, spicy and savoury; I loved the exotic flavours and all at the office! However, thought the ribs were a little bare of meat.
Chicken masala with turmeric rice: Chunks of chicken in a spicy tomato sauce with lightly spiced turmeric rice. Tumeric rice was splendidly fluffy and delicious. I wished I ordered the ‘mild’ version though, but maybe just right for your palette.
Traditional Italian Spaghetti and meat balls: Spaghetti served with meat balls and an authentic tomato sauce. When Spez called their tomato sauce “authentic,” they weren’t kidding! Familiar flavours of garlic, basil and oregano make this dish and absolute winner! The generous homemade meat balls were also full of flavour!
Beef with barbeque sauce burger: Burgers come served with a choice of pepper, barbeque or chilli sauce and are accompanied by lyonaise potatoes. Though the condensation got the best of the bread,the meat patty and sauce made up for it. Finger-lickin’ good 🙂
