On May 2 this year, another restaurant joined the growing trend of restaurants that are fast sprouting all over the city.
The restaurant is none other than the MultiCuisine Restaurant and Deli located at Zambezi Towers in CBD. The restaurant blends Indian, English and Setswana cuisines and is divided into two businesses.
The Deli part of the business operates weekdays from 0730HRS-1800, and the restaurant, which serves an Ala Carte menu, operates between 0730HRS-2200HRS weekdays, and closes at 2300HRS on Fridays and Saturday.
According to Bar Manager, Kagiso Molefhe, one of the owners of the business, Shadrack Elango came up with the idea to open the restaurant following a trip to India. He was inspired by some ideas that he got from India, and decided to bring it back to Botswana.
Molefhe explains that the idea to combine Indian, Setswana and English tastes was so that everyone could enjoy their wide variety of dishes on the menu. On the Deli side, he explains that they serve breakfast and lunch, and that one can find various dishes that include Mutton curry, Dhal Fry, Chicken Tikka, Buttered Chicken, Aloo Chicken, and many more. For breakfast, one can pick from a selection of dishes that include ox tongue, Tlhako, Serobe, Liver, Philo, and wors for P15 each and P3 for Fatcakes and Phaphatha. There is also a choice of Omelette. The lunch menu costs P27 for stew, P30 for Chuck and P45 for oxtail with a choice of starch. The ala Carte menu ranges from P71-P97. “Our doors are open to anyone,” says Molefhe adding that their loyal customers love dishes such as Chicken Tikka and Buttered Chicken.
