The Rabbit Hole Hotel & Restaurant in Krugersdorp has been going since 2001 and keeps growing in popularity. This family-owned business is a local favourite that has won several awards assigned by the Mogale Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Entering through the large wooden gates with a Moroccan turret on one side, you already know you're 'going down the rabbit hole'. The fairytale venue features bunting hanging from the eaves, lanterns, mosaics, brightly coloured walls and quirky artwork everywhere. The guesthouse rooms are beautifully decorated and each has its own theme. But we’re not here to talk about free Wi-Fi and fluffy pillows – we’re here for the food.
The Rabbit Hole restaurant has something for everyone – vegetarians included – and the gourmet pizza menu has been devised by someone I will most certainly become best friends with (food is the way to my heart). The options that stood out for me were the pulled pork pizza with slow-roasted pork shoulder, pineapple, peppadews, caramelised onion dressed with fresh rocket, and the vegetarian pizza, topped with goat's cheese, mixed peppers, artichokes, zucchini, thinly sliced red onions and fresh oregano.
My personal favourite and highest recommendation would be the Blue Cheese and Crispy Bacon Burger, which is served with French fries or a salad. More good news for vegetarians is that you can swap the meat for a veg-friendly patty. You can also 'fancy up' your burger with items from the list of extras, such as brandy sauce (made in-house), sautéed wild mushrooms and smoked grilled bacon, to name a few.
The rest of the food on the menu also looked interesting but a man can only fit so much food into his belly and only so many words into a review. You'll just have to go check it out for yourself.
