On Fri eve we celebrated the birthday of a gorgeous lady by the name of Kim. To kick off the festivities we lined our stomachs with some Mexican food at El Burro. Here I finally sampled the much talked about Cerviche starter:
FINELY DICED FRESH LINE FISH MARINATED IN LIME JUICE, SERRANO CHILLIES, GINGER & CORIANDER (R56)
If you are a regular reader, you might now that I have visited El Burro before and wasn’t really blown away by the food (you can check out that post here), but I loved the spot otherwise because of it’s fun vibe. After that first visit everyone was like “Ja, but it’s because you didn’t have the bloody cherviche dumbass!” – so needless to say there was no way I wasn’t going to leave there this time round without giving it a bash.
I’m glad I did, because it is pretty damn tasty. I especially liked the fact that it didn’t taste “fishy” in any way. As for the mains, I stil feel the menu is very hit-or-miss. The quesadillas for example are good, but the build your own chicken tacos is incredibly bland. I like my Mexican food to pack a punch. Make me sweat a little people – I like it.
After dinner activities included doing unmentionable things to this little guy:
And then I can’t really explain this pic, but it makes me smile, so of course it had to be included in the mix:
Then we headed over to Blakes Bar for a bit of dancin’ and general naughtiness. DJ extraordinaire, Sean Westcott, was churning out some slick old school tunes – I love that, much easier to get your dance on.

It was an awesome summer’s evening in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with some amazing people. The perfect way to kick off your weekend. Here’s hoping everyone else had a great Fri eve too!
