Hmmm, F!sh

Last night was pretty fab. Went out for dinner with Varen's family - his folks are jetting off to Canada & USA for 2 & half weeks. Was minorly disgruntled since I had been planning our belated anniversary dinner for last night, but when they're leaving the country, what can you do?

Luckily the evening turned out nicely and they even met us half-way (another of my minor in-law pet peeves) at F!sh in Rosebank. Wow, this restaurant is definitely moving onto my Top 5 list! This time we skipped starters (a good idea, leaving space for our mains) and I re-ordered the Grilled Salmon Teriyaki I'd had last time (incidentally Varen also order the same dish he'd had last time, the Seared Tuna). I highly recommend you order the Salmon seared as well tho, it definitely makes for a melt-in-your mouth meal :)

In other news, I've recently joined the world of the podcast listeners ... what with the iPod set up in my car, it makes for interesting drive-time listening. My current favs are Skeptoid (these are nice 10 minute bite-sized information chunks) and the BBC Documentaries. If you have any good (and free) podcast recommendations, please let me know :)

Oh, and ps ... I added a pic of the adorable lion cubs to yesterday's catch-up post! Didn't have enough space there for this one tho, so I'm including it here. See what I mean about those giant paws (that's my adult-sized hand holding it!)

Wow.. I so want to do that when I come to SA. The Lion cub thing I mean. :0
You really really want to be a restaurant reviewer.. you know you do. Go on, what do you say...

F!sh is a great restaurant, but never tried anything off their regular menu - I get too sidetracked by the conveyer belt sushi on the way in.

I love seafood, but hubby's allergic to shellfish and doesn't like fish. Do you know of a restaurant that does meat AND fish well?

I agree with mr jones, btw.

@mrjones - there are plenty of Lion-type Parks up here ... but I'd recommend the Rhino & Lion Park over the plain old Lion Park that Varen & I went to on the weekend - I've been to both :)

@sweets - as I said above, we weren't at the same one this weekend as TJF and Tamara ... Go there if you get the chance, I'm sure your boys would love it :)

@tamara - eep, not off the top of my head. Will keep an eye out tho ;)

If you've read any of the reviews on mrjones' blog, you'll know that those restaurant reviews are far, far more witty and detailed than my own. The pressure is too much and now that I'm doing real work again, so (sadly) is the lack of time!
