Boma Restaurant Victoria Falls

Carving details on fruits welcome you to a dining experience you will not easily forget.  Diners have hands washed, are greeted by a drumming dance in which they can take part at the entrance and also are provided with local brew.

Grill central - in the centre of the restaurant, which provides both an outdoor atmosphere and covered seating.   Some of the eye opening items that caught my eye and palate are smoked crocodiles, the Mopane worm, game ostrich, Warthog fillet and Nyimo beans.

Guests are provided with an African themed fabric - Chitenges -  to wrap around and soak in the place.  Two languages - Shona and Ndebele - are spoken to greet customers.

Although emphasising barbecued meats, the Boma also has delightful desserts. 

I could not fill in all after a sumptuous feast .

Wander to the meat grilling section and you receive a friendly welcome as to what you want on your plate.
There is also soup from the camp fire and also a sad counter with lots of choices.

The spit and the quality on the outcome depends so much on the skills of the roster and the marinade utilised.

The Boma Restaurant is located as part of the 
Safari Lodge Resort in the town of Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.
Opening hours are from 7pm each evening.
Nightly entertainment is highlighted by the Amakwezi dancers, Amazulu drummers, a Sangoma (healer) and a traditional oral story teller.

85 Degrees Bakery Cafe Hurstville NSW

There are several outlets of this bakery cafe for several years now in Australia.  Did they coem from the USA?

Each franchised outlet is in a busy area, often in suburbs so-called by a diverse Asian demographic.   The one in Hurstville is rather roomy and lots of baked stuff on its shelves.   The base of Sydney operations is in Chester Hill, a suburb south-west of the Sydney city centre.

Some of the cake creations would be viewed as rather leaning on the East Asian dimension  - Strawberry Angel (with chocolate base and top) and Mango Cheese ( with yoghurt).   However, to counter this perspective, there are also Death by Chocolate, US Cheesecake, Coffee Brulee and Blueberry Marble options.    

The pastries are definitely filled with ingredients more suited to perhaps Anime loving fans and non-mainstream cultures - for example, garlic, pork, tuna, green tea, red bean, shallots, pork floss, coconut, Hokkaido butter cream and Boroh or pineapple buns.   Sung seems to be a variation emphasised…

Penang - Lor Mee

Lor mee is another of those street foods that are not commonly available in Western societies, but are easily found in southern China, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. The dish is iconic of the Teochew Province in China and has been mainly brought to equatorial climes by immigrants over the last few centuries. It combines snippets of ingredients in a thick savoury sauce. Above, the lor mee with roast pork and sliced hard boiled egg accompaniments at the Fong Sheng Cafe, along Lorong Selamat in Georgetown, Penang - the place was introduced by May Wah and Henry Quah.

The cafe harks back to the seventies or eighties - and maybe earlier - what caught my eye were (above) freshly blended fruit and/or vegetable juices and (below) metal and plastic contraptions of the food trade.

Hot and cold drinks are easily on offer from the cafe (above and below) at very reasonable prices.

Another version of the dish (below) taken whilst Bob Lee was enjoying them in another cafe or coffee shop in Georgetown…
