Aside from the Loch Ness Monster and unicorns, the chicken is probably the most famous creature on earth. For generations, mankind has been discussing this noble and delicious creature, asking which came first, and why it crossed the road. Find out why this feathery fowl is so famous with deboned Chicken Mozambique at Rustica for R30.
The mysterious tribe of wise beings, known only as they, have said that everything tastes like chicken, obviously implying that chicken is quite a universal, unexciting flavour, but not even chicken tastes like this chicken. Using a near-magical combination of light garlic, chilli and coconut to create a creamy sauce, Rustica have created a flavour so deliciously thrilling it can be likened to stealing the last slice of pizza and not getting caught, or picking up both a ‘q’ and a ‘u’ at the same time when playing scrabble. Of course, the most delicious burger in the world would be a disappointment if you wanted fries with it and got carrots instead. Choose from mash or fries if the cold is making you crave carbohydrates, and for those that do enjoy their carrots, it’s also served with rice and vegetables.
Situated on the scenic Kimiad Golf Course, Rustica is a calm oasis in the hustle and bustle of Pretoria life. Like a mirage in the desert, it is nestled among lush gardens and fields of green, green grass, decked with twinkling lights. Whether you decide to laugh in the face of the icy winter weather and dine on the patio or keep toasty in the sunroom, you can enjoy your tasty treats in style. Considering it’s a family restaurant, you can bring the kids along too, because Rustica is probably the only restaurant in the history of ever that actually encourages kids to draw on the table.
Chicken Fact: The first chicken documented to have crossed the road was named Lufrahge. In a town called Fairy Land, a phosphorous pentoxide leak from the local pie-factory caused a mass fowl-panic from the chicken coop. Chickens ran everywhere to get away from the gas, but Frank was the first to run across the road to escape the gas.
