African Restaurant Kim Bu Mbu

Last night dinner at this restaurant that was new to me although it's apparently been there for a year now. Interesting design with adobe walls separating the booths and African wood carvings to decorate. Curious sheet metal tables with box-like chairs that slide out like filing cabinet drawers. Dishes from Congo, Cameroon, Kenya, South Africa. Had a salad of (cooked) carrots with rocket, with an orange sauce, followed by brochette of sword fish and pineapple which I enjoyed very much. The dessert of mango purée was also very good. At calle Colmenares, 7 (Chueca, behind Ministerio de Cultura), Madrid. Telephone 91 521 26 81. Reservation advisable.

On the way back we walk down the Paeo del Prado in front of the Botanic Gardens to see the open air exhibition of bronze sculptures by Baltasar Lobo.
