Pangeli source an abundance of local South African, Hawaiian, Japanese and Oriental produce and turn them into amazing poké creations, while all the pickling and curing processes happen on site.
“Think a plethora of exotic mushrooms, fennel and zesty orange, delicious umami seaweed combinations, with plenty of familiar flavours to add to your meal, from pickled red onion, salmon sashimi, or lemon wasabi mayo prawns all adorning a bed of sticky sushi rice, with fresh greens, quinoa or noodles as other options” says the founder, Sean.
The fun menu includes innovative tacos; made from crispy tempura-battered sheets of nori seaweed and ‘donuts’, a delight for the senses with a soya sauce pipette (just in case you had any doubts about the fun part). You can also design your own poké bowl.
