Hero is a new kind of eatery; at the intersection of design, fantasy, indulgence and individuality. Built as a speakeasy with a discrete entrance and prohibition-style bar; the concept invites the guests to be members of a secret space. Bridging fantasy and reality, the space and food celebrate heroes from comics and from our own community; the thought leaders, entrepreneurs, athletes, authors, do-gooders, champions of humanity and protectors of the environment.
The menu features sushi, but it is decidedly not a Japanese restaurant. The food is not authentic, it is creative. The cuisine adopts the sushi form, but takes it out of its native context to give way to more flavor, color and fun. The small plates draw in influence from the idea of the superhero, and their superpowers.

5/ 5

Hero restaurant is located on the 9th floor of Village Market at the Trademark Hotel. The elevator on the ground floor opens up to a small hallway that leads to the restaurant. I visited the restaurant on a Sunday and I was impressed by the view of Nairobi from the restaurant. The restaurant has great artwork on the walls and an open-plan kitchen. On this particular Sunday, there was a DJ near the bar who entertained us the whole day. I was meeting my friends there and we decided to have a table where we could have a view. The restaurant was pretty empty but tables became more occupied as evening approached. The menu at Hero is quite vast and has a lot of seafood options, which are my favorite. I ordered the Loki’s Cup cocktail which is gin-based as I waited for my appetizer and the main course of aged sirloin steak. The waiter attending to us, Eric, was absolutely charming and helpful. He ensured that all our needs were met and our orders were brought to us as quickly as possible. My appetizer was a mushroom soup that was absolutely divine. It had the distinct taste of mushroom which I love in a soup. My aged beef sirloin came to our table soon after. The steaks are generally served on stoves and cast iron pans which enable one to reheat the food or cook it according to your specification. I always prefer my steak well-done so I loved this. For the prices, each cocktail ranged from KES 700- 800. The appetizer was KES 600 while my main course was KES 2100. For dessert, I had a mango sorbet, which cost KES 500 and was the perfect ending to a perfect meal.

COMIC THEMED DINING

View All

4.6/ 5

A hero comic book inspired and themed restaurant housed at the 9th floor ( rooftop) of Trademark Hotel in Village Market with the best Nairobi skyline views , unique flavor combinations, creative take on food and drinks and alluring decor features. They describe themselves as an ‘eatery at the intersection of design, fantasy, indulgence and individuality’, and true to that the comic theme is seamlessly translated into the menu, the food, the drinks and the vibes they emanate. FOOD;- (Price range Kshs.700 – Kshs.2400) Their comic book menu is such an exciting and awesome touch, with an interesting mix of modern Asian fusion foods all ranging from small plates to charcoal grill plates all artistically plated . For starters we had 1) White miso soup (Kshs. 900):- soy braised pork belly, sweet red chili, root vegetables and daikon. This was hot, spicy and the perfect soup to kick off a fine dining experience. 2) Crab and Lobster Maki(Kshs.1100), :- fresh crab, avocado, glazed lobster tempura, mango gel, passion fruit and soy glaze, so fresh and a creative combination of flavors that went so well with each other . 3) Breaded Calamari (Kshs. 900):- , Szechuan pepper, spicy dashi ponzu. Tender on the inside, crispy on the outside and a dip into the spicy dashi ponzu elevated the flavor. Mains:- 1) Red Miso Lamb chops served with spinach tempura, dashi-miso lamb jus (Kshs.1700) 2) Chicken Teriyaki Skewers served with sugar snap salad and peanut sauce (Kshs.1550) 3) Aged Pork Neck Steak(Kshs. 1550) swerved with spicy miso sauce, raw vegetable salad 4) Tugulu Sushi Rolls (Kshs.1700), tempura prawn, fresh crab, spring onion, sugar snaps, mango , soy glaze , avocado All these were good but were lacking a little bit on the flavors, could have been better. DRINKS: – (Price Range Kshs.750- Kshs. 900) Creative, strong and seriously impressive drinks. I highly highly recommend trying out every cocktail on their menu as they are pretty much the it!!! We had 1) Mask of Sorrow (Kshs.750) Jose Cuervo, mango, white wine, basil syrup. 2) Boy Scout Ol Fashion (Kshs. 850), the sequel to the original ‘Old Fashioned’ with Bullet Bourbon 3) Loki’s Cup (Kshs.900) , Tanqueray Gin, bourbon, Martini Rosso, homemade orange bitters 4) Halo Mocktail (Kshs.550), guava, pink blossom iced tea, lime juice, simple syrup, baobab powder. DESSERT: – The desserts were my highlight, unique Kenyan classic ice cream and sorbet flavors all which have a childhood story attached to their creation. 1) Uncle Obama (Kshs.700), banana ice-cream, dried banana, exotic caramel, banana bread, namalaka cream, sourdough chip. 2) Flash Fire (Kshs.550), mango sorbet, chili granita 3) Charlie Brown (Kshs.700) peanut butter ice cream, peanut sponge, raspberry jam, crushed peanuts. The desserts are so delicious, definitely not to be missed on. SERVICE: – Hospitable stuff and attentive to your needs, shout out to Eric for the personal and quick service. Hero is a great spot to unwind with friends as you enjoy the Nairobi views and share different bites of what’s on the menu. Highly recommend booking beforehand and visiting during the weekends as there is a resident DJ, whose mixes are so fire you dance as you chow down and enjoy yourself.
