For authentic Afro-Lusitanian food, head straight to Troyeville Hotel in Johannesburg.
Afro-Lusitanian is a fusion food genre that resulted from the presence of many generations of Portuguese settlers in Africa.
The food is similar but separate from classic European style Portuguese food. Key dishes include Caril de Galinha (a coconut milk chicken curry) and the super-spicy olive oil, garlic and chilli hot sauce known as piri-piri.
Established in 1939, Troyeville is more than just a hotel, it's a Johannesberg original and has seen the cityscape change over the years. The hotel has stood the test of time, serving up delicious food for over 70 years.
Troyeville serves an extensive array of Portuguese and Mozambican dishes, from spicy chicken wings to delectable grilled calamari and rice, to Maputo prawns and delicious vegetable platters.
Address: 25 Bezuidenhout Street, Troyeville, 2001, Johannesburg
