A February 2004 trip
to Brooklyn by lobosolo
Quote: With work to do in the city aiding my brother with some of his job, which we own together, we visited Brooklyn from Staten Island (where he lives )and at the end of the day we saw I-Shebeen and just couldn´t help dining there.
Restaurant | "Madiba I-Shebeen"
The food was excellent as was the service. The decor and ambiance fit perfectly the food served and none of us could skip the dessert.
But let’s begin with the main course…
I had ostrich in a sweet sauce and just could not stop eating until the plate was completely clean. My brother had lentils to start and then a plate with meat that simply looked delicious. We both had African beer and my sister-in-law had a vegetarian plate that was too much of a temptation for us both to avoid tasting it.
Dessert was a creamy chocolate mousse we all decided upon since it looked gorgeous and the waitress so very recommended it. None could resist. If you are around, decide like us on South African over French food, which you can find around easier than Madiba´s...
