Boiler Room Café, the popular breakfast and lunch spot located in the old Lion Match Factory in Morningside, Durban, will be opening for monthly or bi-monthly themed pop-up evenings.
While Boiler Room Café has occasionally hosted private parties and night-time functions at the spacious venue, the team is now introducing evening dining in the form of fun pop-up dinners. The first event is being held on Thursday 21 April and Friday 22 April, with a menu inspired by a recent trip to the Karoo by owners Graham and Gina Neilson.
The locally inspired spread will include grilled figs with goat’s cheese and kudu bresaola; potato bread with ostrich, bone marrow and pink peppercorn jam; wild-herb-cured trout with pecan nuts; braaied ostrich tartare with vetkoek and sour cream; Karoo lamb pasteis with goat’s cheese and slaphakskeentjies; and a citrus cheesecake with ginger-beer ice cream for dessert.
The themes will change for each pop-up, with an American ‘4th of July’ theme coming up in a few months.
The Karoo menu consists of six courses for R350 per person. There is no liquor licence, so diners are encouraged to bring their own tipple for the evening. To book your spot for the first pop-up, email Gina at email@example.com or call Boiler Room Café on 031 312 9021.
