Out of Africa
Just steps away from Taman Jaya LRT, Out of Africa is a constant favourite among PJ-based families. Slightly gimmicky but fun, the restaurant is decked out with figurines of giraffes and a lion or two. Sample South African originals like lamb
bobotie and tongue kalahari, or go for the braaied boerewors (grilled sausages), washed down with your favourite pint. The kids’ menu here is great as there are no fake nuggets or burgers – everything is made in-house with real meat. This is comfort food at its best with lamb chops, juicy steaks, pasta and pizza on offer. The jungle-themed playground is responsibly tiled to prevent boo- boos. And since the restaurant is right next to PJ Palm Sports Centre, you can have a swim in the Olympic-sized pool and a play in the kids’ pool.
