Sorry for the very dark pictures… the lighting is super dim at The Roost.
Single food eatery: an eating establishment (restaurant, take-away, pub etc.) which only caters one meal on the menu.
Yes, it sounds too good to be true, but single food eateries are popping up in neighborhoods around the world. What could possibly be the problem? These eating establishments are focusing on perfecting one item and one item only, while I’m sure for some it’s hit or miss, The Roost located in Gillitts Durban is definitely a hit!
While other restaurants offer countless main meals, side dishes and desserts The Roost painstakingly only offers one. Rotisserie chicken. Organic, Free Range baby chicken, slow roasted for three hours on a rotisserie served with bottomless salad and thrice-fired potato chips and 4 home-made sauces to be precise. And before you claim that it must be a boring meal the chicken is tender, juicy and tastes amazing, the bottomless salad is made of high quality mixed leaves, smothered in your usual vegetables and loaded with feta and olives, the chips are better than anything and if I could order just the chips in future, I would. The sauces are tangy, spicy, vinegary, garlicy and oh so morish! I sat basting my chips in sauce instead of my chicken and very nearly ordered another round of chips to finish the sauce off – if they had them in bottles I would have bought some!
