With its roots firmly set in passion and its flavours unapologetically Afro Porto, the Mozambik restaurant group is fast becoming one of South Africa’s leading dining brands. From its launch as a single store in Ballito, Kwa-Zulu Natal circa 17 years ago, the brand has seen rapid growth over the past half-decade, now totaling 28 stores nationally, and launched it’s first international store in Lusaka, Zambia.
With several sites currently being evaluated, the Mozambik brand is set to continue on its upward trajectory.
Inspired by the Afro-Porto fusion cuisine of Mozambik, the brand’s organic evolution has led to its current positioning; the taste of escape. It is a multi-sensory brand that is built around customer experience. In other words, dining at a Mozambik store delivers high quality and tasty cuisine with an exceptional atmosphere and high service levels. Visiting Mozambik is like a mini holiday, a break, a taste of escape.
Mozambik is not a rubber-stamp brand either. While each store is highly recognizable and true to brand, all are infused with localized idiosyncrasies.
Chef Brett Michielin has, over time, developed a range of bastings, sauces and rubbing spices that has become Mozambik’s trademark. The menu is inspired by Afro-Porto cuisine with a rich tapestry of flavour the common denominator across an eclectically styled offering.
From traditional fare such as prawns through to Mozambik’s famous chicken, the menu offers a wide variety of taste experiences.
