New restaurant openings in KZN

Doughed (Morningside)

Doughed is the venture of David and Ishara Chetty who fell in love with the food of Italy and Sicily on their honeymoon. They spent almost a year perfecting their sourdough, so that the traditional hand-stretched pizzas of Naples are spot on. By day, Doughed is a Naples-style pizzeria and cannoleria, more about this Sicilian dessert later. By night on the weekends, it’s a fine dining restaurant. Average meal cost is between R170-R200. There is a table down the middle, called Our Kitchen Table, at which diners can sit, and a series of banquettes down one side, called the sofa. The interior spills out onto a small deck and the street. Open Tuesday to Wednesday 10.30am to 8.30pm, Thursday to Saturday 10.30am to 3pm. Fine dining Thursday to Saturday 6.30pm to 9.30pm. Booking is essential.

Kali Restaurant (Umhlanga)

A trip to Kali in Umhlanga is all about fusing the concept of tapas and Asian cuisines. Opened by contestants on My Kitchen Rules, couple Kamisha Naidoo and Pashi Reddy.

Along with classic curries, you’ll see dishes such as soft crab burgers and sriracha-glazed wings on the menu. Kali is right on the beachfront and has great views.

Black Bistro Lounge Cocktail Kitchen (Umhlanga)

Situated in the new Oceans Mall in Umhlanga, the Black Bistro Lounge & Cocktail Kitchen launched last month and is one of the most talked-about hangout spots in Durban. Owned by the same people who own News Café in Davenport, Andrey and Joelene Marimuthu. It boasts what proprietors say is the longest bar in the KwaZulu-Natal province, at 27 metres. They offer an array of premium cocktails to quench your thirst. Mouthwatering dishes from breakfast to seafood, red meat, poultry, pastas and burgers. Breakfast is served on the open terrace.

Love Waffles (Morningside)

Love Waffles recently reopened after being closed for 2 months, in a new, bigger and better venue, next door to where they previously were. They are now also serving breakfast from 9am Tuesday to Sunday. Their croffles (croissant waffles) range between R50-R70 and their American waffles range between R70-R90.
