We were very excited to try Braai for dinner. We discovered it by accident when we walked past it and recognized the name, as a result of a recent trip to Cape Town, as the South African word for cookout. The menu posted outside promised an exotic array of dishes. So we made our reservation and even showed up a little early. The decor can best be described as spartan. We figured they saved that investment for the kitchen. It should have been interpreted instead as the first sign. The waiter, who spent more time pushing wine, got our appetizer order wrong. Perhaps he could invest in a pen instead of using his memory. I ordered the biltong and was served a chunk of Brie ... Not very South African. Then we went with the ostrich special he had raved about. Talk about blah. The tastiest part of the meal was the roasted potatoes under the ostrich fillets. I was too bored to attempt the dessert I had been eyeing... Why invest even more in such an unspectacular meal. We left after having sunk $130 in a $70 experience.
