Buffets were invented in the early 1800’s as a means of serving large hoards of people as much food as they liked. The same principle applies today except the food being served these days is lip smacking and not just corn bread and some ‘taters. Try the weigh buffet lunch at Star Anise and enjoy R70 worth of food for only R31.50.
Contemporary café Star Anise is set in trendy Heritage Square in Hillcrest and is the perfect place to catch up with some friends, make new ones or even rub shoulders with a few celebrities. Every lunch time, like-minded individuals ascend on this hotspot for the café’s lunch buffet. Flavour-burst combinations such as curries, quiches, stroganoffs and lasagnes and not to mention their homemade bread create a display that will bowl any food lover over.
All the dishes for the weigh lunch buffet are homemade and promise to provide that feeling only a home-cooked meal can provide. After eating you can be sure you’ll sit back in your chair, tap your tummy and exclaim “that was better than my mom’s”. But not to worry, the staff are all about customer-restaurant confidentiality, although you’re welcome to take your mom along try the good food for herself and meet the competition.
At Star Anise there is no compromise on quality and you can be sure that all ingredients are fresh from supplier to the kitchen. In the capable hands of the chef, these ingredients are turned into flavoursome masterpieces to delight both your stomach and your taste buds.
