You have your beaming chance of sampling some real deal African food until May 13, 2014 at the famous and fiercely dominant chain of restaurants called Barbeque Nation—the pioneering effort of Sayaji Hotels Ltd, that has redefined the culture of grilled and barbequed food all over India! The food festival has been titled as ‘Return of Hakuna Matata’ because it has been brought back by Barbeque Nation on popular demand!
The CEO of Barbeque Nation, Prosenjit Roy Choudhury asserted that the focus of the festival is to offer from the wide varieties of barbeques relished all across the continent of Africa to the patrons of the restaurant chain. The African delights will be accompanied by unique sauces such as ‘Harissa’ and ‘Berbere’… Obviously, the ‘Piri-Piri will not go unnoticed! The assortment of sauces at Hakuna Matata also include Zulu Coriander to go with EMU Smoked Grilled Steak with Passion Fruit Vinegrette and EMU Sausages with mellow Garlic Dip, Orange and Pepper Fish Parcels. Begin your meal with Morraccan Harirra Soup. You must not miss the Chilli Roasted Corn with Harissa (a vegetarian starter) and Boko Boko Chicken and Grilled Fish Calvados in the range of non-vegetarian starters. From the northern frontiers to the southern tips, this food festival wears the promising Cap(e) of Good Hope!
Unique favourites like orange pepper fish parcel from southern provinces of Africa, the basil prawns al Zimbabwe which is a delight for sea food lovers and more are there for the tables in Barbeque Nation. But Return of Hakuna Matata is not only for the non-vegetarians but the vegetarians and vegans also have savoury dishes like veggies with ras el hannout – a popular Moroccan blend of spices, along with chilli roasted corn with harissa sauce and the luscious muamba nsusu — African peanut soup and peri peri drumstick! And needless to say, there’s more!
Pssst, Barbeque Nation’s customers!! This is not all! Do leave little space for the main courses that includes specials as Zimbabwean Spicy Meat Balls and Doro Wat (chicken with ras-el-hanout – a popular Moroccan blend of spice). To top it all, a plate of Baked Ghana Bananas for dessert or the Coffee Fudge Frosting to digest the succulent African Yummy Gummies will complete your experience!
