Mozambique, Laguna Beach - 08.31.08


The reason we went to Nirvana Grille the previous night was that I came by here couple days back and had the Peri Peri Chicken Pops for an appetizer and they were bone dry and did not want to risk dinner on that. As you will see below, that (Nirvana Grille) turned out to be an excellent choice.

Nevertheless, we wanted an afternoon of relaxation and to enjoy the cool vibe of the Mozambique patio. I gave it another shot on Sunday. The upstairs patio is an excellent selling point for Mozambique. The Sunday afternoon sun was shielded by the overhanging tarps but warm and bright enough to know why you enjoy Laguna.

What we needed to top this vibe off was a carafe of their Sangria. This was refreshing and with all the apples, oranges and berries in it, we got our daily fruit intake as well.

Appetizer: Prawns Gone Wild – Simple, butterflied prawns barbecued and served with mango salsa and peri peri dipping sauce. Sometimes the simplest things are the best. Great barbecue, smoky flavor and the peri peri sauce is unique in its savory flavor and just the right amount of tang.

Ok, what the hell, desert sounds good. Why not another bread pudding? Here though it is white chocolate macadamia and it excelled as well. So, fully satisfied we're glad we came back the next day. I would like to try dinner with one caveat. If you get reservations, know that they are for the downstairs which is a bit more different in that you can't enjoy the vibe like upstairs. For dinner upstairs, it's first come, first served.
