John Dorys hasn’t grown to where they are today by serving up average seafood and sushi – quite the opposite really. And although they’re menu is relatively small, compared to some of the other seafood giants in South Africa such as the vast range of seafood on the menu at Ocean Basket, John Dorys menu still packs a flavourful punch.
If you’re looking to try out some of their most popular food from the get go, you should look no further than their classic Hake & Chips combo. For just R79.00, you’ll get either tempura-battered or grilled hake fillet served with coleslaw and a healthy portion of chips as well. Delicious.
Hake is arguably the most popular fish to eat in South Africa, so there may be a high chance you’ve recently eaten it already. If that’s the case for you, switch it up a bit and try out John Dorys’ Calamari Strips. Fresh, perfectly battered, and paired with a tasty tartar sauce. Yum.
