We visited Karoo on Sunday night and were vey pleased to see the nice size crowd of people who wanted to try some new style (for Cape Cod) cuisine. They do not take reservations, so wanting to eat at 7pm, we decided to meet at 6:30pm. Good thing we did, because by 7pm, there appeared to be a waiting list for a table. Two of us were familiar with South African cuisine, so we had a sense of what to expect for flavors, and we were not disappointed. We shared the hummus appetizer and the veggie combo appetizer plate, which were excellent. The beef bobotie was delicious and like comfort food. The rest of us had shrimp, both the Cape Malay stew and peri-peri style, which were both good. The two specials were both burgers, albeit interesting (sausage & wild boar), were a bit ordinary (meaning offering burgers, not the meat they were made from). I hope they take advantage of the Cape's abundant seafood and add these types of specials as most people who visit (and us locals) love the fish here. We will return!
