The Da Vinci Hotel & Suites Executive Chef Kalpesh Hansjee decided to focus on lunch-time visitors who pop into the lounge for meetings or for a catch-up, looking for an escape from Sandton's busy-ness. His traditional bagel and milkshake menu remix offers a contemporary take on classic lunch fare.
Order the classic salmon bagel or go for the house favourite – filled with deep-fried calamari and miso (New York-style) schmear (the word for spread is actually Germanic, or Yiddish in origin). For those who want a local taste try the meaty boerewors, caramelised onions and spiced chakalaka, filling. There is even an Indian-style bagel filled with butter chicken curry, onion salsa & plain yoghurt. All of the fillings are also offered as jaffles (toasted sandwiches) with a side of coleslaw.
We advise you not to miss out on the gourmet shakes, which include a choice of Crème Brûlée, Cheesecake, Marshmallow and Milk Tart flavours. All available as part of the Da Vinci Lounge All-Day dining menu.
