Moyo Zoo Lake Winter set menu feast

Comfort food with Moyo Zoo Lake… A family affair

Comfort food this Winter

Winter is here in full swing and with this cold weather ALL I want to do is eat. But specifically heart warming, comfort, soul food. It’s NO secret that I love good food AND so does my family, specifically my kids… I mean they are MY offspring so it’s just fitting that they have a palate for good food 🙂 You can find YOUR Winter comforts at Moyo Zoo Lake, Johannesburg!

Moyo means heart. It is a translation from the Sanskrit language, Swahili

A family affair at Moyo Zoo Lake

As only the Spirited family can, we turned this opportunity into a family affair. For me it’s not about going out sans kids. I’m more of a “is the venue kid friendly” person as the kids tag along to most things we do. We choose to include our kids in our daily existence AND in turn expose them to life’s little pleasures.

A fine dining establishment that is family friendly. So friendly, they make you feel at home, and they entertain your kids when they are being somewhat uncooperative… wink at Troll who refused to sit at the table and walked around the restaurant. Our lovely waitron, Steven, even gave Troll a rosewater hand wash on his walk about 🙂

The comfort food we ate or rather devoured

A picture speaks volumes so let me show you what we devoured… By the time we reached dessert we were stuffed BUT I always save a space for dessert. *sometimes I eat dessert first 🙂 * And as Dudie would say, “Mom I have space in my dessert tummy”. Apparently he has multiple tummies for different courses 🙂 *my smart egg this one

Our Winter set menu feast we chose

For starters: I had the Camarao Croquettes, Dude had Angolan Beef Bone Marrow Trinchado. I actually shared my starter with Dude and Troll, who in turn responded, Mama mmm mmm 🙂

For mains: I had 4 Africa Lamb Chops, Dude had Seafood Samp Paella Potjie. Ladies and gentlemen if you go to Moyo Zoo Lake – GO HUNGRY! None of us could finish our food. The servings are very generous.

For dessert: I had moyo Mess, Dude had Red Velvet Beetroot Cheesecake. Now let me just say that Dude DID NOT even want me to taste his dessert!!! How even, this man would not even give me his spoon to lick. He can’t stop praising this dessert.

Dudie ate from the kids menu. Meatballs with linguine. The portion size was enough for an adult. Troll ate the complimentary bread 🙂 and a little bit of everything that was on everyone’s plate.

We were entertained numerous times whilst we dined in style

 

As in my video, this was about the 3rd or 4th performance of the night, and clearly Dudie is enjoying the melody BUT notice how focused he is on eating his dinner? In his own words, “Mom, these meatballs are huge BUT so delicious!” I was hoping to take a picture of his bowl for you but alas this child was halfway done eating by the time I got back to the table.

From the mouth of my Dudie, “Mom, we need to come back soon AND I think I need to celebrate my birthday here too!”

Belinda Davids’ WOWs Whitney Houston fans in Johannesburg

Belinda Davids wows her audience

To say that Belinda Davids wowed her audience is an understatement. She was phenomenal! From the moment she walked onto that stage, the crowd was alive with her energy. Belinda had the audience up on their feet, dancing to familiar favourites and those who were sitting down were still tapping their feet. Perhaps they were shy but believe me as the show progressed the entire theatre was dancing and singing along. Belinda also has a live band and dancers to add to a magnificently choreographed show.

Belinda Davids pay homage to her idol, Whitney Houston, live on stage for her only SA performance run for 2018. The Greatest Love Of All: The Whitney Houston Show show runs from 22 June to 8 July 2018 at the Theatre of Marcellus, Emperors Palace Casino, Johannesburg.

Belinda does it for ALL the Whitney Houston fans

Belinda takes you on a journey through the magic of Whitney Houston’s greatest hits. And what a journey…I could listen to Belinda over and over and over, and still again 🙂 Audiences will enjoy hits including; I Wanna Dance With Somebody, How Will I Know, One Moment in Time, I Have Nothing, Run to You, Didn’t We Almost Have It All, Greatest Love of All, I’m Every Woman, Queen of the Night, Exhale (Shoop Shoop), My name is not Susan and more. And of course the ONE song the ENTIRE audience wants to hear… I Will Always Love You!

 

Ladies and gentlemen, if you have not seen Belinda Davids’ The Greatest Love Of All: The Whitney Houston Show show yet, then WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??? The show is quite long compared to other live productions BUT it leaves you still wanting more, definitely value for money! You are guaranteed to leave the show filled with nostalgia and in awe of a phenomenal performer, Belinda Davids.
