This fast-casual concept serves up only organic, locally sourced meat, fish and veg with bold, inventive, multi-ethnic flavor profiles – proving that ‘good for the bod’ doesn’t have to mean ‘bore for the palate’.
Healthy fast food fare, like salady, hearty ‘harvest bowls’ and sandwiches are the order of the day, plus there’s an ace raft of craft beers and wines for when you’re feeling naughty. Ssh!
Warm, cozy, date-night digs backdrop the laid-back, wallet-friendly, comfort fare, which includes humongous hand-cut steaks, line-caught fish, surf-fresh seafood, Saffa classics like Bobotie spring rolls and Boerewors sausage, and – of course – a stellar selection of quaffs. Good wine, good meat, good grief, let’s eat!
