Cheesy maize balls

Our take on a traditional South African side dish. Beer battered balls of maize deep fried and filled with gooey, molten cheese Served on a bed of either chakalaka or a pea & mint puree

Sweet chilli bites

Little balls of spiced heaven. Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside. Served with a mango-pepper dip

Mac n Cheese

Mac and cheese, but not as you know it…Served with tender biltong  

Chakalaka Sausage And Mash


Bunny chow

A warm curry stuffed inside a freshly baked, hollow bread loaf. Served with a carrot, coconut and chilli salad. Chicken and vegan curries available


A beautiful mixture of curried beef, mango and apricot, topped with a creamy golden topping. A sweeter version of cottage pie. Served with rice

Bangers & pap

Juicy beef and pork (boerewors) sausage served with pap - a fluffy maize side, a bit like mashed potato


Milk tart
