Kashew Restaurant is the ideal spot to relax this spring! Spend your afternoon out on their beautiful deck, overlooking the city and sipping on refreshing sundowners and post-work cocktails. The restaurant features a top-class bar, an all-day dining menu, as well as a specialist breakfast and dinner menu that's sure to delight not only your taste buds, but all of your senses. The executive chef, Justin Jonah (previously the executive chef at The Maslow), has created a special launch menu featuring dishes that speak to different flavour palates, but carry through the thread of cashews signature flavour, look and feel.
“The dishes are predominantly Mediterranean, influenced by my personal culinary journey over the past 30 years,” he says. “The dishes all have a story and a memory and have journeyed and evolved with my personal style of cooking to become what they are today – and what you’ll find on the menu at Kashew,” says Justin.
Spring Menu Musts You Need To Try!
When asked what Justin is particularly loving during this transition from winter into spring, he says “Definitely the poke bowl and my wife loves the salmon and I’d definitely recommend the 28-day aged sirloin.”
The poke bowl features sushi rice, baby spinach, crispy Kung POW salmon, pickled ginger, crispy fried onions, purple Asian slaw, wasabi kewpie mayonnaise and baby shoots, dressed with a soy, chilli, lime dressing.
The grilled Norwegian salmon comes with a garlic beurre noisette, roasted cauliflower steak, asparagus spears and a dill beurre blanc sauce.
The delicious grilled sirloin steak is served with roast bone marrow, a brandy and wild mushroom sauce and rustic-cut fries. A popular vegetarian dish is the Aubergine Rotolo, which features grilled aubergine stuffed with spinach and ricotta, baked with Parmesan, served with smoked tomatoes and rocket.
When asked about the name of the restaurant, Justin says “I personally love cashews and know they're a delish snack on the menu.”
Don’t skip the famous roasted Mozambique cashew nuts, tossed with smoked paprika and old-bay spice! “We also make chocolate bark with cashews and soon we will be making cashew cheese and cashew nut butter!” he says.
When asked what sets Kashew Restaurant apart from all the others, Justin says: “The restaurant is an exhibition centre of local artists, diners are surrounded by awesome paintings changing weekly. It is intimate and personal and nothing pretentious.”
So where should you sit when you pay Kashew a visit this spring? At the chef’s favourite table, of course! “On the deck, next to the pool on a sunny day.”
