Motown Grill : Where Soul & Flavor Meat

It’s Swiss Hotel School pop-up restaurant time again, and this year we’re heading to Motor City, USA (at least in culinary spirit that is.)

Regular Blablanians will know that we are big fans of The Swiss Hotel School and its’ students, and that we’ve been supporting their annual concept restaurant project for a number of years now. This year is no different.

Every year the graduating class of SHS 3rd Year students is given the opportunity to develop a concept restaurant and run it commercially for a month. The 2013 class have decided to pay homage to the sounds and flavours of the classic Motown era with their Motown Grill.

A quick sampling of some of the dishes on the menu…

  • Starters

    • Jalapeno Poppers @ R22: Crumbed jalapenos stuffed with creamed cheese, cheddar cheese and bacon bits, and served with a dip
    • Nachos @ R42: Corn tortilla chips topped with cheddar and mozzarella cheese, and smothered with sour cream, salsa fresca and guacamoleMotown Grill : Where Soul & Flavor Meat
