South African food in New Zealand: #RainbowFriday no.32

November 18, 2016

Welcome to your 32nd edition of #RainbowFriday! After numerous quakes in kiwi country, we thought we’d warm up your hearts by sending your over to a South African favourite in New Zealand, Bushman’s Grill.

Restaurant of the week: Bushman’s Grill

Bushman’s grill not only caters for South Africans, but Southern Africans. After 24 years in the Zim-SA restaurant, pub and grill business, the owners, Shane and Dee, decided to take their business to the south-east. The restaurant is located just 7 minutes outside Auckland, which is a very short distance seeing as they claim to have “steaks you leave home for”.

The restaurant not only caters for adults, but has a fully-operational kids’ area fitted with Xbox kinetics and play area to give parents some peace. Kids under 12-years of age also get a free ice cream with topping an fruit juice of their choice.
