The onomatopoeia in the title here is wholly justified! Easily considered one of the cities best restaurants, Dario De Angeliís 9the self-taught owner os the joint) menu sparkles with originality and personal flair. His "new South African cuisine" is basically a fusion of classic French with an Asian twist made in South Africa. There's no beating the tender roast duck: It's deboned, cooked three times to remove excess fat, and served with an apricot glaze and a reduction of molasses and ginger. For a real South African twist on traditional pie, order the vol au vent -- a stew of ostrich, pork, beef, and venison is reduced and encased in puff pastry. All the food is intelligently paired with an appropriate wine by the glass that comes from a comprehensive, sensible list. The toast of Johannesburg for the last few years, this restaurant has won more awards than most other places see in their lifetimes and promises to continue to do so for many years to come.
