Sometimes the best moment is the one you didn’t plan at all. It was Wednesday. Originally, our plan was to try a new restaurant that I discovered in the local newspaper. We battled with Google Map to find the location and called the restaurant several times only to find out that it was closed and would open only in the evening. We haven’t given up yet! We will go again and try our luck soon (that’s why I won’t tell you yet about the place right now).
Almost noon and our stomach started to growl, where to eat? Where to eat? After a while, we decided to head over to Black Sheep – a restaurant in Beau-Bassin that I first came across with my colleagues, not too long ago.
As far as I could remember, the restaurant was quite busy on the day we went in, you could hear people murmuring and feel the eyes of others passing by on your food (which I hate, btw). I prepared myself for this exact atmosphere but to my surprise, there were barely any people around this time.
We made our way inside, chose the table that we wanted and were warmly greeted by the waiter who gave us the menus. Now, time to make the most difficult choice of the moment- WHAT TO EAT!!!!
Do you ever go through a menu, you see a dish and right at this moment you know that’s what you want to eat? Yes? No? OKay. That’s how I felt when I saw Beef and Creamy Mushroom Pasta on the menu. Right there, my choice was made. Jibran went for the Black Sheep Beef Burger with extra chicken ham & pepper sauce.
L’eau a la bouche, right? I loved it, the texture was rich and perfect to my liking. The pasta was cooked just how I liked it. What I didn’t like/ What was missing? A little bit of salt and a pinch of “pepz” was missing. The Indian genes in me are so used to have this spicy taste in my bud that I find my food tasteless without it.
As for Jibran, he enjoyed his burger a lot even if the patty was kind of small for the size of the burger (p.s he has a HUGE appetite, so it might suit other people). The pepper sauce added just what was needed to the burger and therefore he highly recommends adding it. Jib also thinks that a little bit more on the choices of burgers that they provide would be perfect, otherwise, the taste was really good, service was amazing, atmosphere was tip-top.
