Celebrate this Mother’s Day the crocodilian way with a delicious lunchtime buffet

Despite being cold-blooded reptiles, crocodilians are actually warm-hearted creatures and incredibly affectionate mothers. This Mother’s Day, why not celebrate your mom alongside some of the most maternal animals in the kingdom at Crocworld Conservation Centre? On Sunday, 8 May, Crocworld’s Fish Eagle Café is hosting a special Sunday lunch buffet which promises gourmet food, great ocean views and an incredible family day out.

“It’s wonderful that we’re able to welcome back guests for a proper Mother’s Day celebration on our beautiful wraparound deck,” said Fish Eagle Café’s Executive Chef and Manager, Morne van Zyl. “We’ve planned a delicious buffet menu to treat all those special mothers to a memorable lunchtime feast. With winter approaching, this is also the perfect time to relax on our deck and catch sight of migrating whales.”

The three-course lunch buffet starts with a selection of delicious eats including deep fried Basa fish, creamy mussel and white wine pot, Cajun chicken liver pate, salads, home-baked breads and cheese and fruit platters. Diners can then tuck into the main course of slow roasted beef, flame grilled lemon and herb chicken fillets and an assortment of vegetable options. The meal is topped off with a selection of delectable desserts such as mixed berry cheesecake, apple tart, ice cream with English toffee or Bar One sauce and a tropical fruit salad.
