|Acacia Tree in the Dining Room|
This restaurant is quite colourful. A stylized representation of Africa exudes when you walk into the wide open space of the dining area--right in the center a modern art interpretation of a large Acacia tree blossoms from the floor and reaches up to the apex of the ceiling. The skylights let in plenty of natural light but the dining area isn't excessively brightened by it.
|Carrot Ginger Soup|
|Pap and Gravy|
My burger arrived with the Pap and Gravy on a separate plate. Like the interior of the restaurant, the food is quite colourful. The Pap and Gravy looks like white mashed potatoes with creole sauce on them, but actually it tastes like Polenta, and the Cacciatore gravy with the Boerewors sausage is spicy and sweet, much like creole sauce but with a decidedly more herbal twang to it. Another item that could be a small meal in and of itself.
