Well, of course, it’s touristy. But, hey, we were tourists and may never pass this way again. The deal is a no choice multi-course meal with dishes from all over the continent – a tasting menu if you will.
Some dishes were standouts. The Mozambican peri-peri sardines. The Ethiopian springbok wat. Egyptian koshery – lentils and chickpeas in spicy garlicky sauce. Oh, and the cassava bread was a joy. But there was nothing that jarred or failed to work.
There’s quirky decor. And the staff bursting into African song halfway through the evening. And a shop selling craft ceramics, jewellery and the like.
Definitely something completely different to the predictable offerings on the waterfront.
