Dinner & A Movie
Parktown North’s favourite local speakeasy, The National, has launched a new bar snack menu. Created by new head chef, Marc Proenca, the snack menu packs a bold punch of flavour to work perfectly with sundowners, afternoon drinks, or a cocktail before heading out on the town. “A speakeasy is a prohibition bar and a drinking club, and we want to get more of that going,” Marc explains. “We’re not mixologists, but we can offer great wine, craft beer and spirits prepared in a quirky way and served alongside some great flavours.” Dishes on the menu include potato skins with a smoked garlic aioli and onion dust; deep-fried mac ’n cheese with smoked cheddar; fiery chorizo bitterballen served with homemade tomato jam and chili oil; and spicy jalapeño poppers in a tempura batter and stuffed with ricotta, lime and coriander.
