We discovered this lovely braai-lounge restaurant in Munich, which focuses mainly on the South African cuisine, and decided to give it a try. This was also a good opportunity to try something exotic. The atmosphere was great and the food delumptious. By the way, braai can be compared to a barbecue, but just way, way better 🙂 It is, simply, a way of life 😀
Starters: Wildebeest and Zebra kebabs, or sosaties, as they are usually called in South Africa. We both had never eaten something like this before. Yeeeesss, both …
Mains: Boerewors, Mieliepap and Shoba sauce. Boerewors, or Wors, or Boerie, is a type of sausage made with minced meat and various spices. Mieliepap, or Pap, is a type of porridge made from maize meal, the consistency varying from soft and smooth, thick and chunky, or dry and crumbly. The Shoba sauce in this case was made with tomatoes, onions and peppers. Normally the sauce, or ‘gravy’, is a simple tomato and onion mixture. Wors, Pap and Gravy is made anywhere and everywhere, at home, or at a braai, or simply as fast food. Lekker!!!!
Dessert: Amarula Tiramisu. Amarula is a cream liqueur made from the fruit of the African Marula tree. The locals also call it the Elephant tree, or the Marriage tree. Not only is it totally yummy, but it is also very healthy, because it is rich in Vitamin C, potassium, calcium, magnesium and of course protein! There you go! Ähmmm, we are talking about the fruit… 😉
Cocktails: To round off the evening, we ordered these harmless cocktails made with cream, mint and something foamy. And yes, they were served in bowls! 😂 😄
