Well, it certainly lives up to its name, I’ll give ‘em that. Because if you’ve ever been to a Brazilian style BBQ restaurant where they bring by various meats to the table on skewers, this is basically the same, only instead of it being things like beef, chicken and pork, it’s virtually every cute animal you just saw while you were out on safari. Spring Buck, Hemsbach, Zebra, Ostrich, Giraffe, Kudu, Crocodile, etc…

It’s like they’re trying to prove out man’s dominance over other species by eating them. And truth be told, it kinda works. You almost feel animalistic as you transform into a flesh eating Neanderthal, super villain. It’s also a bit macabre with the waiters all dressed up like they’re a part of a barbershop quartet.

And while the food isn’t amazing, it’s not half bad either. Granted it has very little competition as it pertains to comparisons for the title of “Ultimate Zebra dish” but it’s still worth a visit for the novelty alone. After all, it’s not like you’ll be eating Zebra again anytime soon, unless you jump the fence at your local zoo and go all Hannibal Lecter on it.
