Weaving my way through motherhood whilst trying not to mess up adulthood.

Shaka Zulu

How do you  celebrate a birthday when you are too old for jelly and ice cream but at the perfect age for sparkles and bubbly? Shaka Zulu of course...

Shaka Zulu was hosting a twisted circus theme which saw stilt walkers and dancers wearing costumes to give the Lion King a run for their money dance and parade around the south african inspired restaurant and club.  My friends and I were seated  and promptly our drinks and main menu orders were place. The starter is made for sharing and it was brought out on a serving board with a choice of lamb samosas, smoked salmon, wild boar and ostrich terrine, poached salmon and king prawns and garlic flat breads.  I love a good starter and this was so good, it fed 7 of us with spare left over for picking, yum!

For my main course I chose Ras el Hanout spit roast of the day which was a choice between  either pork  or chicken.  Sides had to be ordered separately as they didn't come with with the main meals and although our waiter advised us to share a few sides we all did that 'eyes bigger than our belly' thing where we all ordered our own and of course it ended up being alot of food.  I had peri peri chips, which was just the right amount of spice and not too salty. After such an incredible starter, I was a little let down by the main, I found the chicken a bit dry but those who had steak and the cajun spiced red snapper had nothing but praise for their meals.

Cue the sparklers and chorus of Happy birthday from our table and the table besides us as another sharing platter covered in a selection of dark chocolate tart, coconut panna cota and melktert, was brought to the table. Light, sweet and creamy desserts that left us feeling satisfied and not bloated.

The restaurant is attached to a nightclub and we had the option to party the night away after our meal, but instead we opted for a girly evening back at the hotel to celebrate the last few hours of my friend's birthday.

Shaka Zulu until next time
