Nezesaussi, Manzil Downtown
Time Out Says
That’s where Nezesaussi in the Manzil Downtown comes in.
The large sports bar attracts a large crowd despite sitting inside the often deserted Manzil Souk. The space is a mix of high tables and stools, leather-seated booths and flat screen TVs beaming out an array of different sports. The walls give endless nods to the Antipodean and Saffer spirit that runs through the bar – with jerseys and photos from the three nations’ two biggest sports rugby and cricket everywhere. We grab a table next to a huge framed Springbok jersey and eye up the menu for famous tastes from the nations. But instead of dishes such as boerewors or crayfish the menu is packed with a confused mix of American and uninspired pub fare. Think pastrami, chilli dogs, Philly steak sandwiches, spaghetti carbonara and chicken schnitzel. The nearest thing to the real deal are the “braai-seasoned” fries, which are great but not nearly enough to satisfy cravings for home. Unfortunately, the search goes on.
