Suburban life offers the tranquility of leafy green streets, spacious gardens and guaranteed parking round the clock. What to lacks is a variety of restaurants and bistros within close proximity to your home or ones which aren’t housed in a shopping mall.
When Janet and I finally found a mutually agreeable night for a long-overdue catch up, we opted for a good ol’ faithful rather than the latest in fusion cuisine. Borusso’s is about a 3 minute drive from my home in an area I’ve lived in for ten years. Surprisingly it took Grant, an ex-Durban boy, to slap me on the wrists for never having been. I’ve been deprived.
Their website describes them as offering ‘sublime pizzas, consistently good pasta and value for money prices’. I agree. Nestled under huge oaks in the back beer garden, Jan and I talked for hours while sipping huge glasses of house wine silenced only by the arrival of our food.
Traditional wood fired pizza; bases thin and crispy with sumptuous tasty toppings oozing hot gooey cheese. Jan had the Quattro Stagioni; a margherita topped with ham, mushrooms, olives and artichokes. I ordered the No Name Brand which hosted generous portions of spinach, feta and bacon. Heavenly, I tell you.
The service was fantastic, prices reasonable to a fault and the setting relaxed with laugh-a-minute company. A great evening in a garden, right in the heart of a leafy green suburb with lots of parking available. Perfection.
