SquareMeal Review of
The name means a council or conference, especially between different tribes in South Africa, although the food at this international tapas joint goes way beyond the Cape. Dried boerwors sausage and
pickled boquerones sit side by side, and the day’s line-up might also promise albondigas, grilled haloumi salad, vegetarian Macsween haggis with spinach and pine nuts or sea bass fillet with chilli
and mango. Also look for Cape Malay ‘sosaties’ skewers and variations on Venezualan arepas (fried corn discs with fillings ranging from plantain and avocado to chorizo and fried egg), but don’t
miss out on the legendary torta llorona (chocolate ‘crying’ cake). Tipples from Spain and Southern Africa dominate the drinks list at this congenial and eclectic house of fun round the corner from
the Cameo cinema in Tollcross.
