|Hotel sushi, fruit and salad - this is what you get |
when you try to be healthy on a work trip
Once I returned back to Jo'burg from Durban I had my eyes set on a restaurant near my hotel called Moyo - it's a chain of high end restaurants that serves more typical African food in a festive environment with live music, traditionally dressed servers, and even staff at the ready to face paint the kids (and even adults if they want!). I had this adorable little romantic table (for just me unfortunately), and the food was good. Sadly they had run out of a couple of dishes I wanted, but I ended up ordering the lamb m'choui - moroccan cumin and sweet paprika roast lamb, served with a red wine gravy, basmati rice and fresh seasonal vegetables, which ended up being sweet spiced carrots with cumin and honey and green beans with sesame seeds. I skipped dessert because they were out of everything that sounded good to me, but ended up at an ice cream shop down the street instead - so much for making healthy decisions all week!
Just some other photos from my week in Africa!

and I'm still not sure why they give you so much of it!
