Why Katy's Barking Gecko ?!
I love to travel, I love to cook and to try new recipes...
After returning from yet another trip to South Africa I browsed one of my Food Magazin subscriptions and
we started to envision how it might be to have a small, a very small restaurant. Somewhere in Australia or
Maybe 4 or 5 tables.
To be in the kitchen wearing t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops cooking for fun and nice people....
Doesn't that sound great ?!
We even came up with a name: Katy's Barking Gecko
Well there is no restaurant (so far....), but heaps of favourite recipes.

Bobotie, South African Lounge & Dining Room Cologne, Germany
Well this is one of my most favourite restaurants in Cologne.
Whenever I feel a little bit of "homesickness" coming up it is always a great idea to visit this great place and have some "therapy".....
The food is tasty, the athmosphere lovely and they have a good selection of cocktails (alcoholic and non-alcohol), as well as some nice South African wines, beers etc.
The athmosphere is quite african, with some soft music being played in the background.
For starter you can choose between,Meat Samoosas, Sosaties or Boerewors and Biltong.
The mains include Potjiekos en Pap, slow cooked lamb, grilled Kingklip (with tomatos and Pepperdew, Ostrich Fillet with a Rooibush Tea Sauce, grilled Springbok and other game ( depending on availability )of course Bobotie en Geel Rys and much much more.
A friendly waiter/waitress explains the specials of the day ( written on a blackboard) at your table.
We had a Vegetarian Curry with Rotibread.
A Potjie of the day, which was Wildebeest with three kinds of beans.
And Ostrich Fillet in a Rooibush Tea Sauce.
Culmination, one of the divine deserts.
Of course you can order a Dom Pedro as well....
You can have a look here for the whole menu.
And here for the Bobotie Homepage (only German..).
Tables can be reserved online.They call you back on the evening of your reservation to reconfirm the booking with you.
