Some days you just have to create sunshine, on others HSE Gourmet will dazzle you with food that brings sunshine into your life. After a long awaited re-opening, HSE Gourmet is ready to impress you once again with their delicious, global-inspired cuisine. Their new location is bigger and brighter, ready to welcome back their loyal customers, as well as new foodies ready to try some of their famous dishes.
Chef Nkesi started HSE Gourmet with humble beginnings. Its popularity spoke for itself, and after months of waiting she has opened the wonderful HSE Gourmet once again. With a new menu to boot, she has kept some of the favourites, but has explored new dishes reflecting her love of global cuisine.
The more extensive menu goes from brunch to dinner with a smooth transition and mouth-watering dishes that will make you want to stay all day. The finger-licking Sticky Glazed Pork Belly is not to be missed, with succulent pork belly marinated in a sweet ginger BBQ sauce and topped with a delicate sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds. The crispy Crab Croquettes are addictive, with a crispy shell and soft crab and potato center, sitting on top of a chili jam and cooling tartar sauce, the perfect duo to complement this ball of deliciousness.
For a filling taste of the Mediterranean, the Mediterranean Rice Bowl is a must. The skewers of grilled beef go hand in hand with the herbed rice and homemade pita bread. The grilled vegetables add some spice to the mixture, and if that isn’t enough, the brave can test their spice-tolerance with the side of pepper sauce, or to cool off, the homemade tzatziki sauce. But for a dish that will impress, the Whole Fried Basil Fish in all its glory is quite impressive. The whole white fish is deep fried and basted with a ginger-basil sauce, a touch of Thai flavours, with a side of rice. It’s a seemingly simple dish full of flavour. But for a more filling taste of the ocean, the Seafood Linguine is a hearty dish with calamari, prawns and mussels cooked in a white butter sauce.
For the weight watchers, the Skinny Eats options are excellent alternatives to the more indulgent dishes. The Grilled Cauliflower may not seem like an exciting dish, however, it is surprisingly flavourful. The grilled cauliflower steak sits over a mixed salad with mint and feta salsa verde, sprinkled with ruby red pomegranates, giving it a touch of sweetness.
HSE Gourmet is also known for its selection of iced teas and milkshakes, which go well with all their dishes. When the heat is at its peak outside, a Mixed-Berry Iced Tea hits the spot!
Chef Nkesi brings out the comfort in gourmet dishes without compromising on taste; from their mouthwatering burgers to their crowd-pleasing Mac’n’Cheese options, let HSE Gourmet add a little sunshine to your life.
