The Ground Beef Kabob Flatbread (which was the the table favorite) is refreshing and filling. Nice and lean.

The Spice-rubbed Karubi Ribs have great flavor; super tender and spiced just right. The portions are also very nice.

The curry corn sausage was good but it was the least favorite of the table. Lacked spices compared to other dishes.

For dessert, the African Milk Tart is pretty good with an interesting coconut aftertaste

The watermelon lemonade is super refreshing. A must have on a hot summer day!

Expect a review of the full menu in later posts and podcasts, but for now, it is clear this is a welcome addition to the park and a much needed additional dining option with the expansion in full swing!
