SIP! SIP! HOORAY !
Chez Sonia located in the lush, fresh-aired and tranquil Peponi Road is an interestingly furnished and cute spot that was converted from a private home into a lovely wine bar . It’s a charming, tranquil and cozy spot to sit, relax, fine dine and sip on some of the best delicious wines that only Chez Sonia prides themselves in. The space is a combination of indoor seating and outdoor garden sitting. The inside seating is made up of open space and private rooms. Each room is uniquely named and uniquely furnished, I however didn’t get the chance to get inside so I’ll shade light on the outdoor seating. The garden seating area has cute furniture, on the tables are fresh flowers, artsy coasters and miniature table dolls, appealing 2.endo ‘aura of the self ‘pillow on the seats and impeccable art work hanging on the green, leafy trees. The tables are nicely spaced out which allows for intimate privacy .I loved being hit by the sun, listening to the birds chirp as I sipped slowly at my cold glass of Pinot. FOOD: – (The Food Menu ranges from Kshs.500 – Kshs. 3500) I had the; 1. Parrot Fish Meuniere (lemon &butter sauce served with potatoes wedges.) (Kshs. 1500/=), the parrot fish is a unique flavor, similar to the other fish but a little bit more meaty. The marinade and butter sauce sip through easily to enhance the flavor. The wedges were thick, crispy on the outside and warm and soft in the inside. 2. Artisanal Dumplings in Lamb and Bok choi (5 pieces) (Kshs.750/=), the lamb filing was rich and juicy and that dip in soy sauce stole the show. These dumplings were too delicious but felt so tiny. WINE: – (The wine selection per glass ranges from Kshs.500- Kshs. 1800) 1. Cave de Tain – Premieres Notes Syrah –AOC (Kshs.600 per glass). Freshness in a glass, this dry wine is delicious with berry fruity undertones. It paired perfectly with the baked fresh parrotfish. 2. Inycon-Pinot Grigio (Kshs. 600 per glass). This is a Southern Italy White Dry wine that has citrus notes, it went so well with the dumplings. Chez Sonia is a great spot to unwind after work or a cozy hangout with your loved ones over wine.
