PART 2: DOING DURBANS’ LIST OF HOLIDAY EXPERIENCES 2015

Hello there!

FROM WHERE TO STAY.CO.ZA
Last week I shared Part 1 of a list of wonderful new experiences to consider when planning and executing your December break. (You did remember to get your leave signed off, right? 😀  )

Here is Part 2, enjoy 🙂 

 

  1. BARNYARD THEATRE GATEWAY

Oh my hats!

There are some amongst us who have yet to do a Barnyard!!Please treat yourself to this experience – it’s so much fun, so reasonably priced and you have the benefit of taking along your own food! (That’s a big pro for fussy eaters!)

Take a look at my previous blog post for an inside peek of the layout and design.

  1. THROW A SUSHI PARTY WITH TASHIKY SUSHI

Tashiky - Sushi Party
Divine!!

Abso-frikkin-lutely DIVINE!

I’ve ordered their platters and had them delivered to my office, and their  sushi is ALWAYS fresh and delicious!

They offer a sushi party package for ten people.

Ladies, perhaps consider this for a festive ladies night in, throw in some (a lot) of wine and you’re good to go!

  1. TRY ETHIOPIAN FOOD – CAFÉ ABYSSINIA    

    Let your taste-buds be transported to the land of injere (a traditional Ethiopian bread) and use it to soak up delectable mix of bebere (spices) in various forms. Be it braised mushrooms or this “paste” of chickpeas and turmeric or stewed lamb or chicken (unlike anything you’ve I’ve ever tasted!)  The menu includes ample vegetarian options as well.

    I frequent this place – you have to wash it all down with some traditional Ethiopian coffee which is served with popcorn.

    It occupies an immaculately clean yet modest space on Cowey Road, run by the lovely Charity.

Everything is made fresh from scratch so I advise you to order ahead or go when you have some time to spare – good food takes time to prepare and this isn’t a fast food place! Highly recommended.

WHERE: 77 Problem Mkhize Rd (old Cowey Road), Durban, 4001

ENQUIRIES :031 836 4777

WEBSITE: They have a Facebook page
