Chefs, an eatery in Cape Town, located on the corner of St John’s Street has recently added an option of dinner to its former, lunch only menu.
This canteen style spot launched in October 2016 with a fresh concept of three meals which are loaded onto the Chefs website so you can decide on what you want to eat before you get there and place your order. No booking, no waiters, no menus and most fun of all, no tipping! You simply choose your order and your meal is brought to you on a tray, in a matter of minutes.
My house is currently being renovated and the kitchen is one of the sections in the house that is undergoing a facelift. This has been quite an inconvenience for me, because, for the past four months, I’ve had to dine out or spend money on takeaway which is not only bad for my pocket but for my hips too. So for me, Chefs is a dream. A meal which includes dessert costs no more than R160 – I’ve eaten there twice, and could never manage to have dessert because the meal is so filling. The cherry on the cake for me is the fact that the meals are not only mouth-wateringly delicious but it’s very healthy too. Anyone who knows me well would know I’m not a fan of salad nor do I eat veggies much but when it comes to the veggies served at Chefs, I gobble it all up, they are simply yummy!
Many of us are guilty of turning to junk food when we want fast food and then end up feeling gross and bloated for days, I know I do. You no longer have to feel guilty or bloated, you can now enjoy delectable, healthy fast food at Chefs.
Chefs has also been recently granted a liquor license which means you can now relax and savour your meal with a glass of wine. The Wine List for Chefs was steered by Head Chef, Jenny Ward, who is formerly of Bizerca Bistrot. “We like to explore and support unusual varieties because it’s exciting for our patrons to try new things,” she explains.
Chefs takes a directional approach to “fast” food by making fresh, chef-led meals available quickly in an accessible, affordable and non-fuss way. The concept is perfect for discerning diners in search of an outstanding meal that won’t take hours to prepare. Chefs in Cape Town was launched as the prototype for a global chain of outlets that will give hungry patrons what they want, when they want it. Each of the pending international Chefs will follow the same formula as the South African flagship, serving just three incredible meals per day, prepared by a Chef of note.
