Dining Out

Feature

4 Boulevard Centre - Compensation Rd

ballito@mozambik.co.za

Mozambik Ballito 066 242 2973

Starters at this Mozambiquan restaurant include the usual suspects like chicken livers, rissoles, trinchado (steak strips in a garlic and white wine sauce) and chorizo, as well as items like giblets cooked in tomato and red wine sauce with paprika, and green olives stuffed with cashew nuts and marinated in a chilli-lime olive oil. As might be expected, when it comes to main courses it’s the combos that come flying out the kitchen most often in any combination of succulent chicken, calamari and prawns. For a spicy hit, try the steak with wine, garlic and a creamy peri-peri sauce. The line fish – either with a green banana, mango, coriander, shallots and coconut milk sauce, or coconut milk, chilli and lime sauce – offers a more subtle taste sensation.

 

Drinks

A perfunctory wine list of reasonably priced, easy drinkers. An attached bar also means the restaurant has an extended drinks menu, which includes katemba, cocktails and shooters.

 

Service

Casual but not sloppy. A friendly young team adeptly covers the floor and service is perfectly suited to the restaurant – helpful, proficient and free of pomp and ceremony.

 

Relaxed and unassuming. The interior incorporates rustic wooden cladding; brown paper tablecloths that encourage guilt-free, hands-on eating and a large shell basin in the outdoor area for post meal washing-off. The upstairs bar is equally laid back in vibe and décor.
