Elasticated trousers were designed not only to accommodate long and comfy sleep sessions, but also to allow for uninhibited indulge at all-you-can-eat buffets. While stretchy pants might not be the chicest wardrobe choice, they do serve a noble purpose, which in this case is allowing your stomach to grow without hindrance. Get the elasticated trousers out of storage and take them along for a Mongolian Mediterranean buffet at The Fish Shack for R120.
A delightful Pretoria favourite on Boardwalk Lakeside, The Fish Shack serves up Mediterranean-style cuisine and sea-side flavour. You can practically see yourself sitting on a jetty on the Greek islands, dipping your toes in the water while you savour the scents of well-prepared food.
With a variety of culinary delights wider than the brim of most sombreros, there’s flavour to tantalise any taste bud. If a perfectly seasoned cut of prime meat leaves you in something of a trance, choose from a variety of kebabs and strips and a more marinade than you could shake a buffalo-wing at. Of course, if you can drag yourself from your steak-induced stupor long enough to check out the other offerings, you’ll find salmon, calamari and shrimp; more than enough choice to add some surf to your turf. Finish off your meal with noodles, wild rice or some of the other starches on offer or maybe one of the six different salads. If sushi is more your speed, there’s an entire buffet of that too as well as a choice of six different curries.
Sooner or later you’ll have to heed to the voices of other table-dwellers who’re trying to snap you out of your buffet-trance – but all in good time. Until then, tuck into seven different delicious desserts and seven flavours of ice-cream. Once your buffet-infused moment of solitude has passed, take your time to enjoy the beautiful views of Table Mountain and explore the Fish Shack’s impressive wine bar.
Fishy Fact: Legend has it that the tastiest fish can be found in an underwater hostel directly at the centre of the earth. Many fishermen have explained that the reason they’re such prize catches is that the hostel feeds them cake pops for breakfast, lunch and dinner; giving the fish a uniquely sweet flavour.
