The passion in the heart of the kitchen in the Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Melrose Arch’s old Hollywood-style restaurant is Executive Nelis Van Heerden, whose fusion-inspired creations will sway event the harshest food critic.
Perspex-encased chandeliers and silver dining chairs set the glam tone in the trendy restaurant that is famous for its gourmet designer burgers. The Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Melrose Arch restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the hotel’s.
One of the Chef's favourite dishes on the extensive menu is the Marakesh Express, a three-way Moroccan cheese starter served with fresh melon and preserves, that create a flavour burst on your taste buds. But a main course must is to try one of the beef, lamb, ostrich, chicken, fish or vegetarian burgers that are a legend in their own time and said by most to be the best in Jozi.
A winter favourite in the restaurant is to tell the server: “Save my bacon!” The quirkily titled dish comprises rib-sticking pork rashers slow-cooked in a rich black bean sherry paste, served with jasmine rice and pickled cucumber. And if pork belly is your delight, the only way to finish off your thoroughly decadent meal is with the Sweet Fudgenator – a hot fudge pudding dripping in fudge cream. The Chef also highly recommends the Lindt-2-Rumba as a belly-warming winter dessert; an infusion of dark rum and Kahlua Lindt tiramisu served with vanilla bean ice-cream.
The restaurant is located on the first floor of the Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Melrose Arch on the corner of Whitely and High Streets in the trendy Melrose Arch lifestyle precinct in northern Jozi.
