The very first Mike’s Kitchen was well ahead of its time, situated in trendy Greenside on the first floor of a building.
It was there that Mike created a restaurant that embraced all that he had envisioned. It had the quality and feel of a kitchen in a much-loved home. Wooden floors gleamed in contrast with the plastic-coated gingham table cloths. There was not a starched napkin in sight. The ambience was cosy, and stiff formality had no place.
A large fish tank stand was awkwardly positioned in the restaurant, posing a potential difficulty. But, not one to compromise, Mike found a creative solution. He turned the fish stand into South Africa’s first salad bar – a concept that caught on and has to this day been copied by loads of admiring followers.
And then there was the food. Mike was a true South African at heart and enthusiastically embraced his heritage. Instead of turning to foreign cooking for inspiration, Mike decided that local was lekker and compiled a menu reflecting the heart of South African tables.Open
