Eldorado Park the hood that couldn't

Everyone and their mother will now have an opinion on what is happening in Eldos and wether or not its actually as bad as it seems.

For as long as I can remember I have had to stand up for my hometown and convince people I didn't live in Baghdad Ext12. We had no drive-bys and other criminal activities.

I am not sure if I have been living under a rock, or if I disassociated a long time ago.  Recently Eldos has been in the press for all the wrong reasons. Death, Torture, Crime,Drugs almost every evil thing that has come to mind.

These issues are real and if I could have moved out I think I would and will. Not because I don't care, but because it gets tougher and tougher to remain.

Savour Sizzle of Mozambique

Last night I got to taste a little Mozambique. Sheena gracefully accomodated me when asked if I too could attend her twitter table she was hosting.
Man, there is nothing more delicious than well prepared prawns - when they can be found [ We couldn't find the prawns in the buffet and when I asked where the prawns were, the waiter responded with "under the sea"]He did it with such a dead pan face I couldn't stop laughing.
However Chef Benny of Masterchef fame, made sure that I got freshly prepared prawns as compensation for having to look for them.
The service was fast and efficient, the company was warm and funny, and my food was amazing. I got to eat muscles,barracuda, red snapper, prawns and the most delish lobster tails I have ever had.  Not bad for a R290 price tag eh? This taste experience is available until the 9th of May. Click here for bookings Please also note of all the above fish, I have never eaten lobster,muscles, or even barracuda *ooh barracuda*
