Outdoor seating and indoor tables with street views made for great people watching at La Dolce Vita Café, Bar & Sushi on Maputo’s buzzing Julius Nyerere.
I chose a carrot and orange juice to start, and it was served at room temperature but tasted fresh squeezed.
Because the menu had a whole page devoted to bruschettas, I had a hard time choosing which one to order. I settled for one that included all the restaurant’s fabulous bruschetta choices in one sample platter. There were Italian, prosciutto, anchovy and codfish bruschettas. My favorite was the anchovy, made with tomato, basil and mozzarella. It totally inspired me to try making them myself at home.
The extensive menu also included sushi, sandwiches, pasta, and meat.
I ordered the camarao club, which came on ciabata bread with prawns, avo, tomato rocket
(arugula), cocktail sauce, garlic and olive oil. It was yummy but too much to eat after the bruchetta and I took most of it home.
Other sandwich items included “A Judia” — smoked salmon with cream cheese, avo, rocket,
While I ate, I chatted with Jay Biancco, the restaurant’s DJ and house IT guy. He also handles the live music happening there Sunday and Thursday nights, with local bands such as Miguel Xabidzar and Dudas.
Among the popular items at La Dolce Vita are the grilled entrecote (a premium cut of beef used for steaks), and Long Island iced tea, Biancco said.
For dessert, I chose a typical Lisbon dessert — pasteis de nata — a custard cream pie.
The restaurant has been open six years and it attracts locals and tourists. Mudjabura, a
well-known local lawyer, stopped by while I was there dressed in his signature flamboyant attire. He gladly posed for a photo.
