Mixing pop-up with pop culture, The Boiler Room, at the Lion Match Office Park on Umgeni Road, is hosting a fun franco-inspired dining event. Chef-Patron Graham Nielson and Chef Charlie Lakin will be bringing René Goscinny‘s comic book characters to life in the kitchen and on the plate, serving up traditional French country cuisine in a manner that those voracious fighters and feasters, Asterix and Obelix, would heartily approve.
The 5-course banquet menu looks amazing!
