South African Main Course Cuisine

South African cuisine is as diverse as the people who live there, influenced by many countries and cultures over the centuries. They managed to combine all the great ingredients introduced to the country and make it their one and only UNIQUE. Nothing is as delicious as South African cuisine! Maybe I'm just addicted but why not try and judge for yourself.

The two adjacent oceans, the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean are sure to have a huge impact on food choices. Seafood plays a very important role in any diet and can be enjoyed in many ways. Scallops, langoustine, crab, cod, kingklip and snook are just some of the delicious dishes that people love. They can be served with onions, lemon oil, chilli or a delicious curry. Crab is best served braised with onions and chillies, and the snack should be grilled.

If you're looking for a change, you won't be disappointed! South African cuisine caters for all tastes and whatever your preference, there is something for you on the menu. The food is elegant and shines with simplicity. If you're looking for a main course and not a seafood lover, don't worry. Take a look at the options below and see what you like.

The menu topping is a delicious 'hoenderpastei' or African chicken pie, inspired by British pastries but completely different and unique. It's a cookie jar filled with chicken, gravy, bacon, green peppers, and other "secret" ingredients, with the top of the dough baked in a medium oven until light brown and crispy.
