Voodoo Lily Launches New Menus and Fresh New Look
Voodoo Lily restaurant in leafy Birdhaven, Johannesburg, South Africa is boasting a bright new look and a fresh new menu under the ownership of Johannesburg restaurateur Larry Hodes.
The New York-style restaurant is designed to be the ideal place for amazing meals from morning to night, tea and coffee, after work drinks, all types of functions, a post-dog-walk snack, or a place to work with a separate corner adapted as ‘workstations’.
Dominating the new décor are two stunning mosaics – a magnificent wallpaper mosaic depicting a voodoo lily and created out of thousands of photographs of people, pets, sayings, scenery, food and festivities, and much more, which represents the character and lifestyle of the extended local community, as well as a large mosaic artwork behind the bar.
The signature dish on the breakfast menu is Shakshuka, a Mediterranean fragrant tomato sauce, eggs, olives, zaatar yoghurt and challah toast dish that Chef Josh fell in love with some years ago in Israel.
The menu incorporates cuisines from a variety of cultures, including New York, Chicago, Mexico, the Middle East, Spain, Italy, and South Africa, with a great range of sweet and savoury, light and hearty meals, and trendy beverages, all fresh, interesting, and totally delicious.
The lunch and dinner menu features winners such as Hot brisket on rye, Loaded latkes, Fresh gnocchi with pulverised broccoli and garlic, which Chef Josh has been perfecting since a friend’s grandmother made it for him in Bologna years ago, and many more.
A full dinner menu is in development. The restaurant also features a must-try cocktail menu, a range of beautiful wines and local craft beers, as well as old favourites. To round off the menu for everyone, little people and doggy friends are also accommodated.
