Taste of Africa

Calling all single ladies out there, your search for a decent bloke is over. He’s over six foot tall, strongly built, deep commanding voice and handsome. Maitre d’, waiter, master chef of Sudanese cuisine, owner/manager of Taste of Africa in Dandenong. He’s probably a bit of a handy man too. Plumbing, anything you name it.

Welcomed to this private personal dining area, plenty of pride and care is taken with the food as you watch the preparation and listen to the sizzles that waft from the kitchen. Going on his recommendations the shiah is pan fried lamb with garlic, black pepper, onion with a lemon citrus tang. Unfortunately it’s cooked well-done, the meat navy seal tough but a pleasant, simple flavour. Better is the kofta, tender meatballs of mince, onion, garlic, black pepper, green cumin and coriander. Very homely and again simple, clean flavours that could make the Azzurri jealous. Spruiking both up like a spiked punch at a party is the green peanut sauce mixed with green chilli, onion, yoghurt, salt and pepper. Eggplant and zucchini are stewed down til soft and mushy, then mixed with another peanut sauce containing lemon, green chilli, onion, garlic and pepper in one of the salads. If veggies were prepared like this I reckon a lot more kiddies would get into them. Want to find out if he’s interested in raising a family? Ladies, take a number and get in line.
