Background

We have always loved entertaining our family and friends for lunch or dinner when we lived in South Africa. For many years all of our immediate family would gather at our home for Christmas lunch. This meant we would have at least 18 people sitting down to eat - all with their own food preferences. We always did our best to accommodate their preferences as everyone is different and we wanted each one to really enjoy the food they liked the best. We soon realised that we both thoroughly enjoyed cooking and providing people with an enjoyable and satisfying food experience. No fast foods, just high quality, wholesome and delicious home cooked food.

We moved to the US and lived there for over 6 years. After a few years we decided to pursue our passion and open a restaurant. We found a suitable existing one that we could turn into our own style and were in the process of buying it when unfortunately life, as it does sometimes, gets in the way and through a set of unavoidable circumstances we left the US and moved to the UK. Our food business dreams went on hold.

We have been in the UK for 12 years now and finally found an opportunity to begin our food business life.

We started off with a South African Street Food stall at various food festivals and called our business Durban Street Food after the city we lived in. We quickly realised from the people who came to our stall and from what they said that there are a lot of South Africans living in the UK who long for some of the traditional South African food dishes. With their busy lifestyles a lot of people would love to eat these dishes but do not have them readily available to buy as quick, easy meals to pop into the oven or microwave and have home style food on their table in minutes, without effort.

So Durban Street Food has evolved from just food festivals and stalls to now include home style cooked meals, for your freezer - ready to eat in minutes.

We can also provide our food to you in larger quantities for your special occasions or events. What a pleasure for you to serve up lovely homestyle food without the worry and effort of cooking.
