Nature's Majesty

Simply Majestic Garden Centre and Restaurant in Germiston is a well-hidden wonderland. If you happen to stumble across it, then prepare yourself to be impressed. Their garden centre welcomes you with the scent of blooms and earthy soil. You can find all your garden needs here, from tools, to potting soil, fertiliser and the cutest garden gnomes. They also stock garden furniture, bird feeders and an assortment of porcelain trinkets. But, once you have made your way through the plethora of plant life, it becomes clear that this is not all the Simply Majestic Centre has to offer.

Simply Majestic

Edwardian Accents

At the heart of the Centre is an Edwardian-style cottage, complete with brocade finishing and wraparound porch. However, this cottage offers more than its quaint appearance. It is partitioned into various shops and businesses, which include a hairdresser, estate agents, dressmakers, an arts and crafts store and a wedding boutique! Talk about a one-stop retail experience. Pop into as many stores as you can, because you never know the treasures you may find.

The Simply Majestic Centre has one last secret in store - a sweet family restaurant perfect for birthdays, kitchen teas and intimate wedding receptions. With an outdoor play area and al fresco seating, the Simply Majestic Restaurant is ideal for weekend brunch with the kids. I distinctly remember being told an elaborate story by one of the waiters here, about the tree which is at the centre of the playground. With its wide trunk and low hanging branches, this is a child's dream. Ripe and ready for climbing, the staff at the restaurant spin tales of faeries and elves who live right at the very top. The kiddies are sure to love this added element of wonder, so bring them by as soon as you can.

The restaurant is famed for their traditional English scones served with fresh strawberry jam and cream. Paired with a strong pot of tea, this is Sunday afternoon snack heaven. Simply Majestic also serve up a pretty decadent chilled berry cheesecake. The next time you are in the mood for a little indulgence, give it a try.

Night Time Wonderment

Good news, Simply Majestic hosts a monthly night market! A community-driven effort, this market showcases the best the centre has to offer. It is also family-friendly, offering a number of fun activities to keep the little ones busy. This November, Simply Majestic will be welcoming in the holiday season with their Christmas Night Market, featuring craft and food stalls galore, Christmas themed music, reptile displays and great coffee for the grown ups. Renier Van Straaten and Taye Brink will provide the entertainment for the night. Don't miss out!

When Is It?

Friday, 29 November 2019 from 17:30 - 21:30.

The Eastgate 'Barraca'

Mozambik's story began 15 years ago when Brett Michielin and Ryan Stewart joined forces to chase their dream of opening a chain of family restaurants. Expanding from their first outlet in Balito to 15 national stores, Mozambik has become a firm Joburg favourite. They bring diners authentic Mozambican flavours and proud national dishes at all their 'barracas' or huts. Boasting a family-friendly atmosphere and tons of fun for the kids, Mozambik is the perfect place to chill out on a Saturday afternoon.

Mozambik at Eastgate Mall opened in late 2017. It has since made a name for itself as the best Afro-Porto fusion restaurant in Joburg East, with another branch situated in Linksfield. The Eastgate branch sits right at the entrance to the impressive food court. It welcomes you in, tempting your taste buds with the scents of roasting garlic, peri-peri and flame grilled seafood. The children's play area can also be seen from the parking, so expect a sudden tug from the kids as they dash off to explore.

Mozambik

Chef Brett has developed the distinctive Mozambik flavours through tried and tested methods. From saucy bastes to dry rubs and signature cocktails, Mozambik's menu is unlike any other. However, each branch has their own specialties and personalised decor. Eastgate's Mozambik is laid back and breezy. The glass sliding doors allow bright sunshine and fresh air in during the daytime. At night, the outdoor deck is lit up in soft light, while the interior is transformed to look like a Mozambican seaside casa. Let your worries glide over you as you leisurely sip a cocktail and dream of ocean views.

Super Specials

Mozambik offers monthly deals on their most popular dishes, including the Seafood Platter for 1, Chicken and Calamari, Rump Steak and kiddies meals. Bring the little ones along on a Monday for a free meal. If they are under the age of 12 and accompanied by two adults, kids can eat for free all day long. The kiddies menu features Mozambican classics made palatable for sensitive tummies. Chicken Strips, BBQ Riblets, Crumbed Calamari, Prawn Spears and Fish Fingers will have the kids munching away happily.

Tuesdays and Thursdays are date night at Mozambik. Bring your sweetheart along for a magical evening. You can order any two main meals for only *R250. Options include lightly grilled Hake, Chicken Espetada, Port Steak and Chicken or Vegetable Curry. Served with your choice of carb, and one Stella Artois or Brutal Fruit for each of you. What better way could there be to impress your beloved?

Veggie Heaven

While Mozambik's menu is meat-dominant, they have begun introducing a couple of tasty vegetarian dishes. Recognising that vegetarianism is much more than a diet fad, Chef Brett has unleashed his creative side in the kitchen. In honour of World Vegetarian Day on 1 October, Mozambik launched their new Jack Fruit Espetada! Jack Fruit is high in nutrients and is often referred to as the 'vegetarian steak'. Enjoy yours skewered and char-grilled or deep fried. Served with a medley of stir-fried veg, potato chips and Mozambik's famous peri-peri sauce, this is the ultimate vegetarian indulgence.

Not a fan of jack fruit? No worries. Mozambik has two staple vegetarian dishes on the menu - Mozambican Vegetable Curry and Moz Bolo de Batata (sweet potato flatbread). Packed with flavour, these dishes paired together will easily make you forget about meat all together.

Mozambik

Jack Fruit Espetada

Now for the drinks. Mozambik offers an array of wines and shooters, but it is their cocktails and party jugs which really have guests coming back for more. If you try only one, let it be the R&R jug to share. A Mozambican specialty often served at sunset on the beach, this Tipo Tinto and Sparletta Sparberry mix is delightful and refreshing. Even if you have never crossed the border to the land of sunshine and sangria, Mozambik Eastgate will have you longing for that Mozambican vibe in no time.

Kiddilicious

Eat

Kiddilicious' family-friendly cafe, offers scrumptious eats to keep you and the kids healthy and happy. Order your little ones a kiddi-chino - a playful, frothy beverage made especially for tiny tummies. It comes topped with mini marshmallows, accompanied by a delicious butter biscuit. Kids just love pretending to be "all grown up " while sipping on their mock cappuccino. Meanwhile, you can sip on an adult beverage, including cocktails from the Mom-osa Bar. Pour yourself a glass of bubbly, topped up with juice and fresh fruit and leave your worries for another day.

Celebrate

Kiddilicious is the perfect venue for your little ones' next birthday. Separate from the cafe, the party venue area is a spacious indoor area, which flows out onto a covered patio and a beautiful, fully shaded garden and kids play area. You can order a few sharing platters from the cafe for your party guests, too. They offer everything from brekkie boards, to tramezzini platters and hot dog boards for the kids. Treat your precious darling to a mini cake complete with birthday sparkler. The mini rainbow cake is said to be a guest favourite, but they are all quite delicious, so you can't go wrong.

The Kiddilicious Beauty Salon also offer pamper parties for groups of up to 12 girls. Spoil your little princess by booking a spa day for her and her very best friends. Or, request a Mom and Me package for just the two of you. Spa packages include welcome mocktails, paraffin manis and pedis, facials and fruity treats to snack on.

Shop

Wreak Havoc Gift Boutique is a kid-friendly store located at Kiddilicious. Their funky brand has everything you need for kid's birthdays, baby shower presents and even plush toys for your fur babies! Designed for the young, urban parent and their super cool kids, Wreak Havoc is the ideal place to shop for unique gifts and trinkets for your baby or toddler. They also sell educational toys, including 3-D puzzles, paint by numbers and construction sets.

Learn & Play

Being a parent is one of the most difficult jobs you will ever have. But, never fear because Kiddilicious is here to help you along the journey. Their baby clinic and parent centre offer classes and workshops for both parents and kids. Learn all about baby massage and skin-to-skin bonding, or bring your toddler to Moms and Tots for fun, interactive play time.

Once the kids are old enough to reach the kitchen counters, send them off to cooking school! At Kiddilicious, they will learn all the basics of cooking and baking from around the world. Now you and your little chef can bond over family recipes and dinner time rituals.

Lastly, this awesome family-fun venue offers stressed out mommies a little 'me time' at their yoga in the garden classes. Come relax and re-centre yourself. After all, you can't look after your family if you haven't first taken care of yourself.
