tashas Revamps Their Beloved Classic Menu


After 16 years on the foodie scene, tashas was seeking a little more innovation and have recently updated their popular and much-loved Classic Menu. Wondering what to expect with this exciting menu update? Well, think six new, fresh dishes have been added to the menu for a splash of freshness.

Each tashas location offers diners two menus — the Classic Menu, that is available at all branches; and the Inspired Menu, which is created and served at a specific branch — offering both the comfort of familiarity and the opportunity to experience something new and different.

The new dishes on our Classic Menu reflect feedback from our customers – a continuing shift to healthier eating, vegan options or a flexitarian approach to vegetarianism – the option to add in protein,” Natasha explains. “The Inspired Menus will remain the same for now.

The New Additions

The new dishes are all created using the best ingredients, and are made to order. Nothing at tashas is pre-made or pre-cut, ensuring that the taste, vibrancy and freshness of each ingredient is retained. “The new dishes combine seasonal flavours and textures and are designed to be bursting with excitement in every bite,” says Sasha Basson, Group Chef for South Africa.

In developing the new additions to the menu, over 30 dishes were prepped for consideration and shortlisting. From there, six dishes were selected and then perfected. Training, done by Sasha in face-to-face sessions across the group, focuses on respecting ingredients and refining the team’s skills.

The new dishes — all vegetarian with the option to add a protein — for the Classic Menu are:

We live in a world where everything is automated and instant – but we believe it is important to slow down and celebrate the handmade – even if that means waiting 20 minutes for a dish that is prepared with care. It might be old-fashioned, but we want our customers to have a complete dining experience – service, décor and food,” Natasha concludes.

The new dishes are available at all tashas stores in South Africa from as of 15 March 2021.
