Anatomy of a dish: ba­nana bread with espresso but­ter at Khu­luma, Dur­ban

Dur­ban’s Sta­tion Drive Precinct is burst­ing with hip places to eat. New ad­di­tion Khu­luma is blow­ing up In­sta­gram with its im­pos­si­bly pretty pink dé­cor. Our or­der? The warm ba­nana bread with espresso but­ter

Owner Fa­heem Val­ley says the recipe is a fairly clas­sic ba­nana bread with pecan nuts and only “the finest ba­nanas”.

The ba­nana bread is freshly baked ev­ery morn­ing and toasted slightly in the oven be­fore be­ing served with a sin­gle ed­i­ble flower and a dust­ing of ic­ing sugar.

Also try one of the pop­u­lar all-day break­fasts – think Turk­ish scram­bled eggs or avo on home­made toast – or one of the piz­zas.

Kirti Ka­mal of Gourmet Girls helped the team to dream up a menu to pair with Khu­luma’s ex­cel­lent cof­fee: a spe­cially cre­ated blend of Ethiopian Si­damo and In­done­sian Mand­heling, de­vel­oped by the team at Wing­man Cof­fee.

The espresso but­ter adds a won­der­ful bit­ter coun­ter­point to the sweet ba­nana bread. It’s made by whip­ping but­ter with a shot of espresso made from Khu­luma’s sig­na­ture beans. Fa­heem rec­om­mends or­der­ing a cor­tado to drink with it.
