The Slug & Lettuce on Kloof Street

*The Slug & Lettuce on Kloof Street will be closed for renovations until the end of July 2017.

The Vibe: Unlike many other spots in the CBD, Slug & Lettuce on Kloof Street offers a contemporary pub experience with a hint of cosy sophistication. From the wooden panelled walls to the raw undone cement flooring, perfectly contrasted by the homely rugs laid in the most unconventional fashion, your idea of a pub goes right out the window when first stepping into the Kloof Street hotspot. Expect to find a variety of art in the bistro, including Tretchikoff’s Balinese Girl and Fruits of Bali plastered on the ceiling, to a section of Banksy and Salvador Dali pieces.

The Offerings: Slug and Lettuce Kloof Street offers a great selection of grub, from light tapas-style eats to chunkier options like burgers and steak. Folk with every kind of palate are well accommodated. “Our burgers are really the stars of the show,” says owner Alex An-los. Try the Green Madagascan Pepper burger for a flavour burst, with the option of sweet potato or potato fries on the side for an added R22, pair it with your favourite local craft beer and there you have a tasty meal, which is a little bit more than your average grub.The Halloumi and Avocado burger, Bacon and Feta burger, and the Camembert and Fig Preserve Beef burger are a few of the popular menu offerings, which you have to try at this Kloof Street hotspot. Banting fans will also be pleased to know that they too have a ‘bunless’ option, creating an all-inclusive pub-cum-dining experience. Top off your meal with a truly Slug & Lettuce experience and try the deep fried mars bar for dessert.

What you wouldn’t expect at Slug & Lettuce Kloof Street: Anything from an insightful vegetarian waiter, who is open to sharing his opinion on even the most carnivorous dishes, to discovering a film script for a pilot of a new TV series! While paging through the menu a well-annotated script fell onto my lap, causing me to look over my shoulder and wonder about the journeys of everyone present. The unexpected happenings in the most inconspicuous places often result in the most memorable moments. The thought lingered in my mind and I had to bring myself towards myself to conclude on whether I was having potato or sweet potato fries with my meal.

Note: You’ll be pleased to know that the bar-cum-eatery provides free, unlimited Wi-fi, as well as live music every Thursday evening with the steak night date night deal.

Find Slug & Lettuce Kloof Street: At the leafiest spot of Kloof Street, spot the red bar stools peaking out opposite Scooters Pizza, just up the road of Van Hunks and just down the road from Asoka.
