They might be on opposite sides of the globe but that doesn’t stop Okumnandi from combining South African and New Zealand cuisine with astounding effect. Welcome to culinary innovation in the heart of Ponsonby.
And just like its food, this eatery enjoys a sleek, contemporary look. Clean as a whistle and without a fork out of place, Okumnandi is a whitewashed haven of calm. Two ornate light features are the only embellishments in this minimalist space. Simplicity at its most sophisticated, the real star of the show is just around the corner.
Embark on your culinary journey with some perfectly spiced nibbles. Chilli lime prawns are unexpectedly paired with harissa whilst the trevally ceviche finds a revitalizing friend in fennel and apple. Alternatively, employ the homemade flatbread with some carrot hummus or burrata.
For mains, the braai comes into full force. This traditional South African BBQ never fails to impart that irresistible smokiness to their lamb loin, skirt steak and peri peri chicken. For something truly authentic, the traditional lamb curry, Bunny Chow, is perfect for sharing beside a Central Otago Pinot Noir. A match made in heaven.
