Living in foodie heaven!!

My inner foodie is extremely happy right now! Last time I was this happy with Chinese food was in 2012 when I visited Shanghai, but during that time we mostly stuck to proper restaurants and campus food with the odd visit to a fastfood restaurant.

Food in Mozambique!

Since I have finally completed my Mozambican holiday recaps on Soul Canvas, I thought it was time for me to share some of the food we had over the 3 days we were there. The logical choice for every meal was seafood of course being that Mozambique is right next to the Indian ocean. Eating…

Quick review: Muchachos

Muchachos has long been in existence however they disappeared from Gaborone for a while at some point. They were well known for their burgers and they still are! They returned recently, suddenly appearing in the building opposite Square Mart next to Cafe Fego. I had had their burgers back in the day but I wanted…

Dinner at Bai Sheng

A week ago, I finally got to go to a restaurant I had been absolutely DYING to visit for a while: Bai Sheng restaurant at Grand Palm Resort. Why had I been itching to go? Well it’s a Chinese restaurant (though the sign at their doorway says “Asian cuisine”) and anyone that knows me knows…
