A Sneak Peek into the 1st Ever Kampala Rolex Festival

Fry an egg (or four) and a chapati, roll them together and you have Uganda's greatest discovery...the ROLEX.


Although the actual roots of the rolex are not known, it can be traced tracked back to university campuses and student hostels around Wandegeya in Kampala.

The rolex was a cheap alternative for students during difficult financial times. A while later, it was embraced all around Kampala and Uganda in general.


On Sunday 21st August 2016, Uganda officially launched its long-term delicacy to the world.


If you missed it, here are some of the event's highlights.


First, a step by step process of making the famous rolex.


1. Making the chapati


2. Then the eggs...


3. Roll the chapati and egg(s) together and voila...you have a rolex! Simple, right?

By the way, have you ever heard of the Mexican rolex?



Neither had I...until I saw it in front of me. It was so mouth-watering...

How is it made, you ask? Well, repeat step 1 and 2 above, then add shredded chicken, tomatoes, onions, and any other ingredient of your choosing.

Roll them together.



There you have it...

Not forgetting the beautiful people in attendance...



It wasn't just the rolex that was celebrated. The evening was also about celebrating African culture in its entirety.
