Hammer & Tongs – Bringing the tastes of Africa to London

Celebrating their first Christmas with a South African Braai Christmas Menu

It’s not only the Christmas dinner staple, the sprout, which they transform into roasted and smoky morsels of deliciousness; the entire menu is slow-cooked over the Sicklewood and Blackthorne open fire. The menu offers three courses beginning with braai’d butternut soup, a beautiful rich soup whose sweet squash complements the braai smoke, Cape Malay marinated Barnsley chop, with flavours of coriander, cumin, fennel, cinnamon, cloves, chillies, mustard and ginger, served with braai roasted brussel sprouts & dry roast chips. Dessert is a Cape Brandy pudding steamed on the embers of the 3-meter long grill.

The sight, smell and sound of the roaring braai in the open kitchen offers an unusual atmosphere to the restaurant that can accommodate groups of two to 80 and the service style reflects the philosophy of the braai; primal elements of smoke, fire, food and good company is a celebration of life.

The menu costs £20 for two courses or £25 for three, is served all day and available now until 23rd December. Each diner will receive a complimentary glass of bubbles and a selection of expertly curated South African wines are available.
