Trust me to go to a Schwarma Bistro and order anything but a Schwarma. Tei Avon Schwarma Bistro is is known for it’s spectacular traditional Mediterranean Schwarmas that are blended with flavors & tastes from around the globe. So I figured why not try something else on the menu because I wouldn’t be surprised by how good the Schwarmas are. Before we get into the food, it’s good to note that the service was a solid 8 out of 10. Friendly staff and they make the atmosphere all the more relaxing with their amazing kindness. Now on to the food, let’s just say it was worth every penny and it really didn’t even cost that much. Opted for the Seared Honey Sesame Salmon which is served with veggies and couscous. The honey sesame sauce was the star of the meal making the Salmon all that more special, pure joy in my mouth. Awesome experience, lovely little restaurant that is definitely worth a visit.
Reasons to dine here:
Food is delicious
Service is great
There are no flies
When love dies.
Death comes as lies,
Bottles the butterflies
slithers in where you lie
There is no flying when love dies
There are only severed ties
Loose ends and bloody lies
Unseen wounds and silent cries
Wounded pride and wings that no longer fly,
Wounds never heal no matter what you try
Tears no longer flow when you cry
And nothing satisfactorily answers the question “Why?”
The butterflies no longer fly
There is the stench of death yet still no flies
The world changes, motionless you lie
Yet time just … Flies
My search for finding a restaurant that doesn’t serve red meat turned into me finding one that doesn’t serve chicken instead (LOL Life). Locando Villa 47 on Bree Street ended up being the only place for us to grab a late lunch seeing as most restaurants around the area shut down at 16:00 to prepare for the Dinner service from 19:00. We were lucky the kitchen was still open because we literally just made it in time before they closed. Any-who once our waiter seated us he took us through some of the menu items in English and Italian which was a lovely notable touch. Turns out all the waiters are trained in Italian now that’s cool and different. Our waiter was on the ball and attentive, the entire vibe of the venue is so fresh & inclusive. The open kitchen adds that extra va va voom and the front of house management are all available throughout giving you a great sense of comfort.
The Food: It was delicious and cooked to perfection. The Calamari coating was light, crispy and seasoned to exquisitely. The dessert menu only has 3 options which made the Tiramisu an obvious winner as that was the only thing we could pronounce with confidence LOL. That tiramisu I must say was the best I have ever had in my entire life! It was very POWERFUL! Loved every last drop of it and I am not a big fan of dessert.
The Cocktails: I kept it simple with a Mojito but no turns out these guys make everything so distinctive that what I was drinking looked like a Mojito but it tasted like something out of cloud 9.
The Pricing: It’s a bit pricey nothing extreme but do plan before hand. You can look at spending R350 for two, so if you are planning a group lunch/dinner then be prepared. It’s worth every penny though.
Will I be going back anytime soon? HELL YES!
