The little seaside town of Mtunzini in KwaZulu-Natal is only around 140 kilometres from the bustling metropolis of Durban, but has a chilled atmosphere and boasts a breath-taking countryside that would easily lull visitors into a sense of being in the middle of nowhere. It is within this tranquil setting that the Forage Bistro and Deli is perched.
Forage is all about great quality, friendly service and foods that are as close to the natural source as possible. Dishes and drinks have been inspired by the international travels of the folk behind the name. Having travelled around the Middle-East, Europe, Asia, and Africa, they have such an insight, fuelled by passion, into different flavour combinations and cooking techniques. With a particular penchant for the cuisine of Asia, many of Forage’s offerings are infused with Asian influences – sometimes in the form of bold statements, other times as subtle nuances.
As its name implies, ingredients are found as close to ‘home’ as possible. The garden yields a number of herbs and other useful ingredients for the freshest flavours. Local farms also produce a range of wonderful items that laden the menu and adorn the plates. To ensure only the best flavours and culinary experience, nothing is frozen.
In addition to hearty, indulgent breakfasts and irresistible sweet temptations, Forage Bistro + Deli is acclaimed for its coffees. Craft beers and a selection of wines (both red and white) are available for those who can sit down and relax with friends and family. Wi-Fi is available.
The play area is just what it takes to put a huge smile on the faces of your little ones. The play area can be seen from the seating area to allow parents the ultimate peace of mind while they savour their tasty meals. Nearby attractions include a host of esteemed game reserves (such as Umlalazi Nature Reserve and Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park), as well as the beauty of St Lucia and Sodwana.
