On Thursday afternoon I trotted along to the Tastes of Maboneng where an entire street in the middle of the city had been closed off so that we could well, feast !
Forget any “Tastes of” events that you’ve been to. This street banquet was hosted by all 12 of the restaurants that are now in the Maboneng Precinct, all giving us a titbit of what they do while we enjoyed entertainment by visiting international food artists. While I’ve visited some of them like PataPata & Canteen I hadn’t gotten around to some of the newer ones like Blackanese so this was right up my alley to tick them all of my to-do-list in an afternoon – dreamy! There’s even a culinary school now, so no more excuses for your bad cooking! 🙂
Kruger Street was buzzing & the drinks were definitely flowing! SMACK! Republic‘s brews were quite a hit on the day. My drink of choice was House of Baobab’s hibiscus tea – I haven’t tasted anything like it, definitely going back for more.
I liked that the event was in a sit-down format so we could really relax & I got to chat to some interesting folks too!
Now I’m thoroughly carnivorous but even the vegetarian food was great. I lost count of how many potato rösti I swallowed! Like I said we were spoilt!
When crème brûlée is a dessert option, for me it doesn’t really matter what else on offer…
I heart Jozi!
