"Kenya Airways has the worst food. They served me 'rice with curried lamb sauce' from JKIA to Monrovia and I spent the whole flight looking for the 'lamb' because the only thing I saw were bones. I presumed the lamb must have trekked from Marraketch to Nairobi and lost its flesh."

@TobyNwazor said:

"I don't need to taste it to know that this is something else labeled jollof rice."
