Combining the Dutch, English, Indian and indigenous influences of colonial Cape Town, Bunny Chow offers a unique adventure in eating—opened in the early fall of 2009, this small, rustic lodge is one of only a handful of South African restaurants in New York. The eponymous dish is named for the Durban region and borne of gold miners’ need to take their lunch on the go; a small trough is fashioned from a third of a loaf of lightly toasted bread, filled with sultry lamb curry and topped with tangy mango chutney. Bunny Chow and most other mains come with a cool carrot and pineapple slaw that cuts the spice with pops of sweetness. Also on offer is something called pap and boerewors—a mild Dutch sausage lounging over a patch of silky white corn polenta doused with sweet cooked onions in a light tomato sauce. Sienna-colored walls rise to meet soaring ceilings leaving room for a loft with a raft of tables and creating the effect of dining in a dark narrow cavern. At the bar, the owner, who goes by “Chef Paul”, chats merrily with regulars, offering glasses of African wine and stories of his days as a cricket player in St. Lucia.
Biltongs, $7; pap and boerewors, $16; bunny chow, $14
