It was after New Year when we had our first Eats A Date event for a food review on Openrice and Opensnap. It was supposed to be last December of 2015 but was posponed, nevertheless the waiting was all worth it.
I was a bit late when I arrived not because i got stuck in traffic but because i had hard time looking for the venue in which it was situated near the end of Blue Bay Walk and i almost when around and around and so when i saw the sign "The Ostrich Farm" I got so excited to immediately get inside with other co-bloggers. Yes I am unable to start the eating process but was able to taste some of their specialties.... and the ambiance of the restaurant is inviting, almost all areas are picturesque scene perfect for taking selfies with family and friends....
At The Ostrich Farm, they make your comfort food favorites with a fresh new twist. They make your juicy burgers, sumptuous pasta dishes, hearty chili nachos, and salads with 100% ostrich meat straight from their own Ostrich Farm --- so you'll know what goes on each and every plate they serve.
Too chicken for ostrich? They also serve a variety of chicken wings to suit all tastes, and serve up a mean 100% beef burger for those who'd like to take things slow.
Trust me, The Ostrich will grow on you.
One of my favorite is their Detox Water it's something new to me because i haven't seen any like it in any restaurant with lots of big cut size fruits and you get to pour in water as long as you want to.
Your Ostrich Farm experience doesn't have to end their door --- pat The Ostrich Mini Deli a visit and take the experience home.
DID YOU KNOW?!
- Ostrich meat resembles beef in looks and taste, but is very low in calories, fat and cholesterol.
- Ostrich meat is rich in proteins and contains more iron than beef, lamb, turkey, chicken and pork.
- It can also be observed that ostrich meat does not have fat mar-bling, as seen in beef. As the fat in these birds is deposited outside the muscles, the fatty parts are easily removed at the time of pro-cessing itself.
- The popularity of ostrich meat may also be due to its sweeter and richer taste when compared to other types of meat.
- Ostriches generally live up to 60 years.
- Did you know that the brain of an ostrich is smaller than either one of its eyeballs and each of its each eye is the size of a billiard ball?

- Ostriches are so powerful that a single kick at a predator, such as a lion, could be fatal.
- Ostriches stretch out their neck and lay their head on the ground to keep from being seen, hence the myth that ostriches hide in the sand.
