Rooted in the Afrikaans word for “barbecue,” this South African watering hole has popped up in Itaewon. On the menu are South African comfort foods, meaning Boerewors sausages, stewed lamb, and pap (a porridge made from maize, like grits and polenta). Make sure to get some imported dry cider with your meal while taking in the decor, including zebra skins and South African sports on TV.
