From what I gather, Cine Star, on a daily basis (?), has an English session at 18h00 only.
We left the house an hour before, thinking that on a Sunday late afternoon, the traffic would be light and we’d reach Bagatelle in due time for the movie. However, because of a religious procession on the streets and the laziness of the service guys at the petrol station, we ran behind schedule. So, we decided to catch the 20h40 show instead. I was not pleased because I don’t like watching movies with French voice-overs. But I chose to give it a shot just because I’ve wanted to watch the movie since the trailer was released.
Once at Bagatelle, we opted to have dinner at Nando’s. Actually, it was me who really wanted to try it out. It’d be my first time. The only one I’ve been to was in the UK.
Mauritius Nando’s is okay. I settled for a Chicken Burger meal while my brother went for Chicken Cataplana. For starters, we ordered the Roasted Veg Dip.
The fries look lifeless, isn’t it? But it was good. And the burger as well. The chicken wasn’t dry nor was it stringy.
Served with warm Pitta bread. The dip was hard. The waitress said the dip was microwaved and it’s supposed to be like that!
Saffron rice, grilled veg, pieces of marinated chicken – all served in an open-top karahi. Delish!!
After two glasses of Fanta and a Coconut Crush between my brother and I, we pleasantly sauntered off.
Will I go to Nando’s again? Yes!! A couple of people told me about the slow customer service, but on Sunday night, the waitress was smiling, helpful, prompt and we got served within half-an-hour! Maybe we got lucky that night.
The only drat thing I could fault with Nando’s is the cellular reception within the premises! I had to go outside to get 4square’d!
Well..it was a pleasant night and all the good food got me nodding off a few times while watching Contagion. :) I think I’ll have to watch Contagion again. In English.
Now, my next food destination will be Steers.
Brother, here I come…
