CALEX­ICO

Eat Out - - JOHANNESBURG -

BEST FOR A taste of the Amer­i­cas. FOOD Ex­pect a con­cise menu from fresh, sea­sonal and lo­cally sourced in­gre­di­ents. Sink your teeth into a plate of na­chos with salsa and smashed avo, or go for the tor­tilla chips with a hot ar­ti­choke-and-jalapeño dip. You’ll find an im­pres­sive dou­ble bour­bon cheese­burger com­pris­ing two juicy pat­ties and a dou­ble serv­ing of melted moz­zarella. Se­ri­ous car­ni­vores will de­light in sticky ribs in a home-made bar­be­cue sauce, chipo­tle ro­tis­serie chicken or chimichurri dry-aged sir­loin steak. For veg­e­tar­i­ans, there’s a bar­be­cue wild mush­room skewer or a side of com­fort­ing mac and cheese. End with choco­late brown­ies or ap­ple pie. DRINKS Beers and cider on tap, bub­bles by Miss Molly and six solid white wine and red wine op­tions.

SER­VICE Charm­ing and cheer­ful. AM­BI­ENCE The space draws in­spi­ra­tion from Cal­i­for­nia and Mex­ico.

In­doors, there’s a cosy fire­place; out­side, a spa­cious deck for de­li­cious sum­mer days. (KK)
