Without having to travel thousands of miles, you can now enjoy great South African cuisine at the corner of Taipei's XinYi and GuangFu South roads. This brand-new restaurant features comfortable surroundings and an African jungle decor theme. Known as the "Europe of Africa" and the "Rainbow Country", South Africa has an early colonial history with influences from the East, West and Africa, all helping to shape the dining and drinking culture there. Consequently, there is a kaleidoscope of flavors to be experienced, as a glimpse of the menu indicates. The South Africa Hake Fillet Served with Tarragon Sauce (NT$380) is made with the deliciously fine hake fish. The Lamb with Black-Eyed Beans & Pumpkin (NT$1,000, serves two to four) must be ordered in advance, as this dish takes at least six hours to cook. No water is added during the process, as lamb, onions, black-eyed beans, tomatoes, pumpkin and spices are cooked together, with white wine added to boost flavors. The end result is well worth savoring. Donu's Lobster Piri Piri (NT$700), imported from Capetown, uses green vegetables, spices and Nigerian sauces to highlight the lobster flavors. The South Africa Dorowat Chicken Leg Stew (NT$280), South Africa Pork Curry with Banana (NT$280), and Deep Fried White Stampnouse Fish Fillet (NT$280) are also very popular dishes.
