Blink and you could miss this culinary gem. This cosy little restaurant is brewing some of the best broths in Cape Town. Look for the interesting wishbone print that hangs above the entrance.
Pick your poison. The signature clear bowl broth is a meal that should not be underestimated. It packs a punch that will satisfy any hunger. The julienne carrot provides crunch, the smoky paprika chorizo complements the delicately flavoured chicken, and the spring onion brings with it a light sweet light sting. Pour over the clear broth, served separately, for a perfect combination of all the flavours. Expect a culinary explosion with every spoonful.
The brown broth's amazing combination of venison, lentils, flaked almonds, zucchini and Turkish apricots is magical. The green and golden broths each boast their own unique signature flavour profiles. If you're vegan, Marrow has that covered too. The white broth is a vegetable broth base with the addition of coconut milk, miso, lemongrass, roasted aubergine, tofu, turnip strips and basil dressing. It can rival the clear broth bowl.
Unfortunately, there aren't any dessert options available.
Marrow is small, quaint and comfortable. A simplistic trend runs through the restaurant, with furniture comprising a long wooden counter and little stools.
Orders and pay at the counter and your meal is brought to you when it's ready.
There's not a large drinks menu to choose from, but what’s on offer is definitely interesting. House-made plum shrub, aceso fire tonic health shot and pineapple shrub cordial is truly unusual and divine.
