Here are a couple of new pictures sent in by Bob Gooderson. This one is of Mini Town which, as far as I know, is operational near to the old Snake Park site. I was in there only once or twice as a kid and I think that may have been because it may have been a bit expensive for us.
The chef Peter Chen was an institution in the Edward Hotel’s Mandarin Room restaurant for many years. The following is a scan of a menu from dinner on 16 March 1981 and a signed Jock Leyden cartoon of Peter. I note that the dinner was a whole R4.00 per person.*
*Added 6 February 2019: We have received a photo of the Mandarin Room’s menu from approximately 10 years earlier. View it here.Share this:
