Karoo Kitchen - The Story!
Karoo Kitchen is your local butchery and deli specialising in quality meats, fresh deli goods and ready-made meals. Our flagship store, situated in the heart of Durban North, is a family style butchery that focuses on customized service and an exclusive shopping experience. With a desire to expand we will be having our grand opening of the Karoo Kitchen Hillcrest Store this week. At Karoo Kitchen we pride ourselves on offering only the best quality meat and it’s for this reason we only partner with the best suppliers from across South Africa. Our famous Karoo Lamb is sourced from our own abattoir in the Karoo and we are excited to be launching our own brand of free range beef and lamb offering grain fed beef, dry aged and wet aged top quality beef. We believe in providing variety and that is why we also stock Greenfields grass fed beef as well as the loved Wagyu and pure bred Angus beef.
Our counters are also stocked with fresh Riversmead chicken and the popular Sala pork and processed pork products. As we are a specialist butchery we are proud to offer a wide variety of game and artisanal products including Klein Karoo ostrich, rabbit, guinea fowl, duck, quail, crocodile and sausages. We have over ten flavours of our ‘world famous’ Karoo Kitchen biltong which is made onsite with our secret home recipe. Our friendly butchers are also always on hand to share their knowledge on the origin of our meat products and to give you tips on how to prepare and cook your meat. At Karoo Kitchen we believe that the key to keeping customers coming back is to offer them something unique, whether it be the experience of shopping in our relaxed environment, the interaction with our friendly staff or the little gems that can be found in the deli section of our shops. With the help of our staff we have tasted and selected a range of artisanal condiments, fresh jams and sides that are all locally produced and that are of the highest quality. Lining the shelves we also have the award winning Karoo Olives and Rio Largo Olive Oils, which are real favourites with our shoppers. Our full range of good quality Italian cold meats include Parma ham, prosciutto, Copa ham, salami and many more specially cured meats. Our hope is that through supporting local artisan food makers we can positively impact the community whilst providing our customers with something a little different.
Our qualified chef prepares a range of ready-made meals daily which can be enjoyed in-store with a cup of coffee or at home at your own convenience .Our pre-cooked meals are prepared with the finest ingredients using our home style recipes and lots of TLC. Although we tend to have seasonal options our regular favourites include oxtail, lamb shanks, chicken curry, butter chicken, lamb tagine, lamb curry and lasagne.
We are so passionate about cooking that we now also offer a full sit in service and take away menu which means you can pop into our Karoo Kitchen Hillcrest Store and enjoy our delicious boerewors rolls, hamburgers or even our popular steak roll.
With over 35 years industry experience our staff strive to maintain the values of a traditional family owned butchery, whilst still using modern techniques to provide the very best experience for you, our customer! We look forward to meeting you and ensuring your Karoo Kitchen experience is an unforgettable one!
