Moz-am-Bik restaurant, Ballito

We asked locals for the best restaurant for prawns and they sent us to Moz-am-bik, Boulevard Centre, corner of Jack Powel and Compensation Beach Road. This has a Moçambiquan beach bar feel,

it has Kingsley Holgate’s Dhow on the top balcony, converted to a function venue

and we had lovely Mozambican inspired food. Prices are low and, understandably, they are very successful and busy.

Lynne started with a Prawn Thermidor, 6 large peeled prawns in a rich cream, mushroom and garlic sauce accompanied by a Portuguese roll and chips (which we declined) for R56.
John had calamari tubes in a peri peri and lemon sauce with a roll to soak up the juices and they  were really stunning.
Everyone seemed to be eating the Prego rolls so we had these with chips (and another roll) for our main course (R50 each) and they made lovely crisp chips.
Bill for the 2 of us with corkage was R262.
We took along a bottle of Cape Point 2009 Stonehaven Sauvignon Blanc which we were excited to discover on sale at the local Checkers.

Manager Davin Gradwell showed us round
