Nyala African Restaurant
Our Vegetarian dishes included Furari (a Tanzanian vegetarian dish of cabbage, potato, carrot and seasonal vegetables cooked with mild spices, topped with coconut milk) and Gomen (freshly cooked silver beet and potatoes with garlic, ginger and other spices). These were delicious. They really do know how to immerse and infuse flavour into their vegetables. Each vegetarian dish was different in flavour but they all shared one thing in common - all the vegetables had been cooked to the point where they simply melted in your mouth and were incredibly tender. The flavours from the herbs and spices were unique and very enjoyable to eat. Read more.

BrimCC
Oddly named “BrimCC”, we were told by the smiling staff that “Brim” comes from their soup cups always being filled to the brim which leads to customer happiness and “CC” varies in meaning depending on the seasons. In winter, “CC” stands for Chunky and Cosy and in summer, “CC” stands for Cool and Colourful. Read more.

Morroccan Soup Bar
With dishes that will please herbivores and carnivores alike, it is no wonder that Moroccan Soup Bar has a loyal band of followers. Its popularity is exhibited by patrons lining up on St Georges Road, patiently waiting for a table at the small establishment. We were excited to finally dine at Moroccan Soup Bar and ordered the celebrated $25 banquet.

The meal started with an assortment of dips and a plate of pita bread. The selection  of dips were very tasty.

The highlight of our meal was Moroccan Soup Bar’s signature dish, the chickpea bake. An unpretentious creation that was particularly memorable for its addictive bread crisps, it is delicious and hearty.

For a mere $25 for the banquet, Moroccan Soup Bar serves a good variety of dishes in generous portions. Highly recommended!
