Sometimes you really just need something for everyone and on days where you have to consider the kids and your every judging mother-in-law it’s places like Baobab that come in more than useful. Not many places can boast as to having eisbein, oxtail potjie, champagne oysters and a dedicated sushi chef all in one place. And you would remiss if you skipped out on their breakfast selection that comes fresh off the grill, marks and all.
There is small selection of salads and a Camembert wrapped in filo but if you eat meat, and a lot of it, you will be the happiest person possible with their wide spread of choice. Find your home in their “Mzanzi Favourites” section where you will have your pick of proteins and the classiest Tshisa Nyama in town. If you have a sweet tooth all of SA’s traditional favs are found here, including peppermint crisp pudding and malva, but with a selection of dessert cocktails like the Banana Shortcake that is packed full of white rum and banana liquor, your mother-in-laws smile will be all the wider.
As with the rest of the menu the drinks section is wide and varied, with a few wines in every style and every liquor imaginable. Not to mention a milo milkshake for the kids.
Genuinely some of the best service ever experienced outside a fine dining establishment and by the looks of the other servers across the floor it’s a universal practice.
From it’s bright fabric covered booths to the African inspired wood paneling it manages to give a touch class and be accessible at the same time. There is even an outdoor deck at the back if you want to leave the parking lot of the mall behind you.
