4Roomed Culture is based on the concept of eKasi four rooms that were the dwellings of the black communities in areas close to the business hubs of South Africa (the cities). These four roomed carriage-like houses will normally be divided into a lounge/dining room, a main bedroom, a second bedroom and a kitchen. More than one family would live in these houses and this is where Ubuntu was mostly developed and encouraged.
4Roomed as a food truck and pop-up restaurant will be the rebirth of Ubuntu that was once part of daily life without any effort, a business initiative that is intended to evoke those nostalgic moments through food, style and décor of the rooms, the smells and sounds that can be associated with the times when multiple families shared a four roomed house as one big union. It’s also an initiative to encourage healthy eating in the Townships.
