*S.A.* Braza Restaurant 07/29/17

Saturday after work we headed to Bloemfontein to see our newborn niece
禮拜六中午下班衝往Bloem看剛出生的小姪女

Before we went to my cousin Jimmy to see the newborn we went to get some lunch first and also to buy some things for the newborn
去看小姪女不能雙手空空去,所以先去吃飯後買禮物再去

This time we chose Braza, we have been there before but nothing really stood out, so we decided to give it another go.  Braza is a Portuguese restaurant with some influence from some African influence.
今天吃飯的餐廳選了平常比較少去的Braza

戶外有人造湖,但是風太冷了坐戶外的人很勇IMG_2072

We ordered a chorizo for starters but somehow i think the waitress forgot but we ended up only with the main courses
本來有叫一道前菜,不知道是服務生還是廚房忘了做,結果我們只有吃到主餐

Baby Hake with Bone in. Not bad actually, was grilled near perfection, although the there was not much flavor but the meat of the fish was very nice.  Had to use quite some amount of sauce to flavor the fish though, which it was somewhat upsetting

Chicken & Steak Espetada- Steak was grilled to ordered, medium rare which was great. But the chicken they used was white meat (breast) which it was a little dry, other restaurant we we chicken Espetada before used dark mean (thigh) which held more juice and more flavor.

點菜時有問我牛肉是要幾分熟,還不錯沒有過熟

副菜我選了比較特別的Pap cube,Pap就是南非人的主食,玉米粉做成一塊方型炸過後外面脆脆的,裡面軟軟的

We had pap cube as the side for the Espetada, pap/mielie pap is ground maize then cooked to a porridge-like texture. The ones we had here was cooked and cut into cubes then deep fried. Crunch on the outside yet soft on the inside with some gravy on top

Piri-Piri醬 Peri Peri sauce, or also called Peri Peri sauce is a hot sauce made from a type of chili found in Africa. Most restaurants in Southern Africa have this type of sauce yet every restaurant has their different take on ingredients affecting the flavor. This one at Braza was not as good as other we have tasted before, not hot enough and very little salty-ness

Piri-Piri醬是南部非洲比較特有的醬,每家餐廳也有不同的調味,這家的調味似乎有點像沒有鹹味的辣椒醬
