Out of Africa Pub and Bistro!

Restaurant: Out of Africa Pub & Bistro
Branch: Skyrise 1 Asiatown I.T. Park Lahug Cebu City
Restaurant Type: Casual Dining
Food: African
Mode of Payment: Cash/ Card

August 24, 2009. It was a scheduled iLearners Meeting and we decided to dine at the 8 day old branch resto in Skyrise 1, Out of Africa! We were greeted by the owner who grew up in Africa and had brought the recipes back here in Cebu.


We had Vetkoek(Price:65php, but it was compliments of the owner) , African bread, for appetizer which came with 3 different dips, barbeque, Garlic and Pepper! I love the Garlic Dip!


Under the appetizer Category was the Trinchado Sizzling Sirloin Tips (Price: 150php). Mozambique Beef Strips cooked in creamy garlic, red wine and mild spicy sauce. The order came with rice. Is it right that its under the Appetizer Category even if it was served with rice? hmmmm


We also had the "Platter of 4" (Price: 650php) which has 6 pcs. of grilled chicken, 1 slab of pork spare ribs smothered in honey barbeque sauce, cucumber salad and Potjie African Stew. For some reason I find African dishes a little different, with familiar tastes, but wouldn't register. The African stew tasted like corned beef with pepper sauce. hehe. Something different I must say!




Chai ordered House Salad dressed in Balsamic Vinaigrette. I love Balsamic Vinaigrette! The serving was a little small though.


If that really how food tastes in Africa, I must say that it's a little blunt for our MSG and salty Filipino taste. But spices and herbs gave each of the dishes character and unique taste. And the interiors I must say is very jungle-ish that gives you a Safari feel in some way!
