Chef Lamek Mnisi
The menus at Kunjani is curated under the watchful eye of Head Chef Lamek Mnisi, who has been at the helm of the Kunjani kitchen since it’s opening in November 2017. Not only does he look for high quality ingredients and innovative ideas when creating this season’s menu, but he continually renews the menus so that regular patrons always find a new dish that will surprise them when visiting Kunjani.
In line with his philosophy to only source seasonal ingredients and the very best fresh produce, Lamek has streamlined the menus to reflect his passion for locally sourced, fresh, wholesome and healthier food options that are also sustainable. By sourcing only locally grown produce, he aims to act responsibly towards the planet and its natural resources and reduce Kunjani’s carbon footprint. As a result, he only sources fish from the green list of South African Sustainable Seafood Initiative (SASSI) and fresh vegetables from the restaurant’s own vegetable garden.
