As much as Thursdays are Phuza Thursday, they also mean market day. Yes, our local food market is on every Thursday.
A break from cooking is always good to recharge the batteries and creative juices, so dinner was at the market. I love markets in general, you always get so much for less. But I especially love the food markets as they make me feel like I’m part of a very special community that feels the way I feel about food and produce. What makes them even better is the variety you get. A market is a place where the world is truly your oyster, you can go around the world in a few servings. It gives choices of different cuisines, interpretations and produce from different countries and continents all in one place, you can’t get that in any restaurant.
Enough talking, pictures tell a thousand words.
For our dinner we went to Japan with our starter Sushi- salmon California rolls and salmon sashimi.
Our mains transported us to 3 countries; Greece with Pork souvlaki with flat bread and tzatziki, Spain with a delicious Seafood paella and China with a Sweet and Sour chicken chow mein and rice.
It was a good evening; met a lot of different people, ate delicious food and my son made new friends.
