I recently had the pleasure of visiting an upbeat Moroccan cafe in Glenwood Durban. Their sustained reputation for featuring in the top 30 Durban restaurants had my friends and I thoroughly enjoying our evening. We unwittingly arrived on their 8th birthday bash, which was celebrated in a ‘Hobo Street Party’ style. Deco was outstanding- from hand written hobo placard funnies on the walls to old shoes being strung up from the rafters, and toilet paper adorning the outside seated area.
We sat down to a delicious menu of mezze or first courses- sharing fellowship around the table. Along with the reasonably priced food and wine, the ambiance was outstanding. Fire dancers put on a spectacular show on the street outside the entrance on our arrival and 20 minutes later there was a huge thunder of drums as the 10 strong Zulu’s performed a traditional dance. If that wasnt all, we were treated to traditional Turkish belly dancing by two gorgeous belles ambling in and around the tables. It really made for a great night out. If its vibey, upbeat and social you are looking for, then Yossi’s is the place. And I didnt even mention the food!
