Exploring African Cuisine At Zim Braai

I am always so excited to visit a new restaurant, but our recent visit to Zim Braai took that to a new level. Not only was it a restaurant I hadn’t visited before, it was also a cuisine I had never really experienced. Zim Braai is a multi award-winning boutique restaurant group based in Dorset with restaurants in Bournemouth and Poole. We visited their Ashley Cross restaurant and I was absolutely blown away, not only by the food but the lovely atmosphere and brilliant service we received.

Let me set the scene; we have 3 children on loop coming into the kitchen to declare they’re absolutely famished/need help with homework/have lost something. Whilst 1 small toddler attaches herself ninja-takedown style to my ankle as I attempt to stir, prep, and then usually realise I’ve forgotten a key ingredient. A scramble to find a replacement usually follows before wrestling the toddler into a highchair and calling the girls downstairs.

Drgnfly Restaurant Review

Is there anything better than being able to don a frock put on some lippy and go out for dinner again? I absolutely love eating out and it is one of the things I missed the most during lockdown.

It was so so nice to have a catch up with the girls, we had such a giggle but the highlight of the night was of corse the food! Drgnfly serves the most gorgeous Pan-Asian dishes.
