We all love us some street food.
Well, at least most of us do and the other statistic who fear street food probably have had a bad case of food poisoning from it and swore never to touch them again.
If you fall in this category, don’t you worry. It’s probably safer to make these in the comfort of your home and because your sure of your hygiene standards and here are some ways you can make them and have them look like a five-star-worthy meal.
1. Smokie Pasua
This delicious food sold by the street came from heaven (especially when hangid). For some reason when you make it at home it just won’t taste the same delicious way it does when you buy it from ‘mama smokie’ but you can make a replica of this at home and trust me it will be delish!

2. Mayai gonga
Some can swear that this is the only way they can eat a boiled egg; with lots of kachumbari and sauce right in the middle. Not only is it healthy, but it’s so delicious. You can play around with this by being creative and make a restaurant-worthy egg dish for sure.
1. Place eggs in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in hot water for 15 minutes. Remove eggs from hot water, cool under cold running water, and peel.
2. Place bacon in a large skillet; cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon on paper towels; crumble bacon when cool enough to handle.
3. Cut eggs in half lengthwise; place egg yolks in a bowl. Mash yolks with a fork; stir in crumbled bacon, mayonnaise, tomatoes, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Arrange egg white halves on a serving platter; spoon yolk mixture into egg whites. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
