There’s the standard menu, which is found in all Tashas branches, then there’s the signature menu unique to each outlet. The latter at the Morningside Tashas is outstanding because of the source of its inspiration: the market. True to its inspiration, the signature menu is a culinary kaleidoscope of fresh dishes that include chicken wild rice salad, tom yum soup, and grilled fish and veg.
The breakfast items on the standard menu feature the usual suspects, such as egg, bacon, bread, and sausage combos, with the option of extras like avocado that come at an added cost.
The food here is fresh, tasty, well-prepared, and beautifully presented. The food is not only visually appealing but also satisfying. It’s also guilt-free comfort food because the signature menu appeals to the health conscious.
They do serve dessert, in the form of baked goods, that change each day.
Going through the well-thought-out drinks menu is a treat. From freshly prepared design-your-own juices to an array of coffees and an extensive wine list, every taste is catered for. You can have as much ginger as you want in the carrot, orange and pineapple number. Whatever your poison is, they have it: be it a strong, aromatic latte or a refreshing brew of tea, as well as smoothies, shakes and health shots. They also serve cocktails and imported beer.
Authentic, efficient and pleasant. The outstanding staff pays great attention to detail and makes you feel as though you’re the customer in the room. They’re also well-acquainted with the menu items.
Airy, light and relaxed. It’s a favourite hangout among Johannesburg’s well-heeled residents. It’s neat and beautiful because of its simple, uncluttered décor.
