The Suburbs is planning to welcome you back with not only a fabulous updated food menu, but also a brand new cocktail and brunch menu too. The Suburbs doors have been closed for far too long, but I’m happy to say were temporarily opened last week for us to have a sneak peek at the menu as we joined The Suburbs team to taste all the delights they have in store for you.
The spirit of Ubuntu, a South African term meaning ‘humanity to others’ is the driving force of owner Kingdom Thenga and the philosophy of The Suburbs. It literally translates into ‘I am what I am because of who we all are’ and in the current climate this kind of ethos feels more important than ever.
The new menu is of course absolutely delicious. Using only the freshest ingredients, the new menu has been lovingly created and lends itself to sharing with friends and relaxing whilst soaking up the wonderful Suburbs atmosphere. Get your invitations out, get a date in the diary and get back to The Suburbs. Demand for this Hoole social hub is going to be huge so we highly recommend that you secure your table now!
Here’s what you have to look forward to – enjoy!
Meat, Cheese and Bread Board For 2 To Share – Sliced Italian cured meat, homemade Biltong, cheese, olives and fresh focaccia bread. The perfect start to any meal or to share with a glass or two.
Oysters 3 Ways – Lemon shallot vinegar, pickled cucumber and caviar. Take your taste buds on an adventure with these fresh oysters.
Smooth Chicken Liver Parfait – Onion Marmalade, ciabatta and croutes. Silky smooth parfait, crunchy ciabatta and onion marmalade – another perfect sharing combination.
Parma Ham and Compressed Melon – An easy and refreshing starter, tastes just as light and fresh as it looks.
Beetroot Tartare – Tartare with cured dug egg yolk. A stunning vegetarian dish.
Kingdom’s Orange Gin Cured Salmon – Pickled cucumbers, radish and chicory salad. A light and bright dish that is just perfect for summer and it looks amazing too!
Chicken Wings – A choice of Jo-Berg, Hoisin, Piri-piri. Incredibly moreish and so tasty – just add friends.
Sowetan Chicken – Suburbs own blend fried chicken ribbons and Sriracha mayo – this is most certainly finger-lickin’ good and another definite sharing plate.
Bobotie Fritters – South Africa’s national dish, curried minced lamb fritters and Mrs Balls chutney. A sure favourite, full of aromatic and warming flavours.
Belly Pork Bites – Crispy belly pork in a Char Sui sauce radish and pickled cucumber salad. Love at first bite.
The Suburbs are introducing a new cocktail menu and we just couldn’t resist trying a couple – as we continued on our journey through the new menu.
Crispy Belly Pork – Confit potatoes and caramelised onions. Meltingly tender with a crispy crackling exterior and creamy confit potatoes.
Biltong Mac and Cheese – Mac and Cheese with Biltong. Satisfaction on a plate.
Confit Duck Leg – Confit duck legs, pancakes and Asian salad. Packed full of Asian flavour and all wrapped up in a wafer thin pancake – a great sharing dish too.
Bloody Mary Mussels – Bacon crumb and fresh rosemary focaccia. So simple, so delicious.
Cape Malay Fish Curry – Traditional Cape curry with rice and beans (available as a vegan option). Fragrant and not too spicy, another plate of deliciousness.
If all this deliciousness wasn’t enough The Suburbs is also bringing back Brunch. The Suburbs brunch is available every day from 12 pm – 2 pm Tuesday to Saturday and from 11 am – 2 pm on Sunday. Is there a more decadent way to get any day started than with a bottomless brunch?
If you’ve never visited The Suburbs, it’s time you ventured their way and embrace the ethos of Ubuntu – you won’t look back!
