My weekend getaway to Brahman Hills was not complete without a visit to the recently opened The Midlands Kitchen This exciting new Artisan Food destination can be found at the turn-off for Nottingham Road (Exit 132)
With 15 different kitchens include Mexican, Mediterranean, Burgers, Pies, Indian, Vegan, Artisan Bakery, a Harvest Table, anything Chicken, Wood fired Pizzas, a Gelato stop with a Coffee bar complimented by a pastry and sandwich section it will certainly be a hit with even the fussiest of eaters.
This new venture was launched on June 28 with the menus developed using fresh produce either grown on site or sourced from local farmersThe Midlands Kitchen has been specially built for easy access off the N3 freeway and is open from 06h00 to 16h00 daily, with the added benefit of the Grab and Go section staying open till 20h00.
The ambiance will be one of relaxed communal dining with customers able to choose from any of the kitchens, whilst enjoying the surrounding countryside. The dining area will seat about 400 people, including space for 120 in an area served by waitrons for those who want to make their meal more of an occasion.
“The idea is to create an artisanal eating experience based around really good food, using high quality ingredients in dishes that are produced with speed,” says Gill Bowmaker, Pathfinder at The Midlands Kitchen. “We are trying to keep it simple so you might get eight options on the menu, but they’ll be eight difficult decisions, and with choices from each of 15 kitchens that’s a wide array of flavours.”
“Everything will be made fresh on site so it’s all fast but healthy food. People will be able to pull off the highway and be spoilt for choice and quality with a range of food that’s not available anywhere else on the freeway,” Bowmaker says.
When we walked in at midday the place was busy and we were greeted by friendly staff who were eager to show us around.We chose a table by the window with the most amazing views .With such an extensive menu it was really no easy task deciding what to order but we finally settled for a spicy chicken with sweet potato fries and a steak roll with a side of regular chips. Our order did not take long to be prepared and when it did arrive it was so well presented on wooden boards that we could not wait to dig in.
Great food , generous servings, made with fresh ingredients and served with the friendliest of smiles.That’s a winning recipe for sure!!!
