Hands up who’s a fan of the fabziliciousness that is the shisa nyama at Mzoli’s Meat Market, Cape Town; not to mention the awesomeness that is their rustic, homemade bread … *drooling over laptop right now*
Thank you to Catherine from Singita Game Reserves for this (beautifully styled with logos et al) pic of the
not-so-attractive fabzilicious bread!
Makes me want to skip the Weigh Less eating plan (it’s not a diet, remember) and head on over for a bite of my own …
*taps finger on chin and considers proposition*
Actually, I think I will make a turn there and find out what’s in that bread … watch this space …

In all honesty, I’m a rather fussy Italian restaurant diner based solely on the fact that I actually know what good Italian food should taste and look like, and I barely ever eat out at an Italian restaurant because of my fussiness.
Having said that, however, last night was delicious – grazie, Il Leone!
The melanzane alla parmigiana starter was orgasmic, the gnocchi with Gorgonzola were stinky (in oh such a good way) and divine, and my filetto – which was done to perfection – topped with black pepper sauce was … *sigh* … I’m still trying to find the appropriate adjective for it … fabzilicious!
Dessert consisted of a crepe of sorts (had no idea us “I-ties” made crepes…but hey…no worries!) drizzled with a hazelnut chocolate sauce, accompanied by a scoop of creamy (what tasted like homemade) vanilla ice cream *heavenly* and slivers of fresh fruit.
Word to the wise, when in Cape Town do as the Capetonians do and get yourself to Il Leone Mastrantonio.
