‘Jichana’, the Swahili slang term for ‘eating good’, is located on Durban’s Golden Mile in Tsogo Sun’s Southern Sun Elangeni and Maharani hotel complex. The restaurant has a modern and minimalistic interior design. Food is prepared in the most authentic way to highlight the natural flavours.
The Grill Jichanas menu explores flavours of cassia, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric and pepper with the perfectly grilled meat, fish and chicken dishes.
Executive chef, Shaun Munro, uses premium grade and Karan-sourced Beef, carefully selected and hand cut by an in-house butcher before being aged through a specific maturation process. Fillet, rump, T-bone and the 200 gram Jichana burger are all served perfectly grilled to every customer’s liking, as is the duo of lamb chops or lamb skewer.
Those who prefer poultry will not be disappointed with the small but well considered offering of rotisserie chicken, supreme chicken or roast duck, all of which are free range and raised in the Dargle Valley in KZN.
On the fish front, all but the Norwegian salmon is sustainably sourced from local fisheries and are all SASSI listed, with the option of fresh linefish in an East Coast spice rub, inland salt water dusky kob served with homemade aioli, Norwegan salmon with savoury mango salsa or grilled LM tiger king prawns. Vegetarians have the option of a haloumi stack or veggie medley.
