Danny’s House of Curries Takes First Place in the Durban Bunny Chow Barometer Competition.
Durban was abuzz with excitement and the smell of delicious, spicy curry wafted for miles around the beachfront. Hundreds of people gathered on a perfect Durban day for the Bunny Chow Barometer Competition.
The Event was held yesterday, Sunday 06 September 2015 at the Blue Lagoon in Durban. As many of you are aware, the Bunny Chow is on the top of the bucket list for locals and tourists alike. Although the origin of the bunny chow has been under much speculation, finding the best bunny chow in Durban is likened to finding the holy grail and this is why the Annual Bunny Chow Barometer competition attracts so many contestants and followers.
The Top restaurants, takeaways and eateries in Durban battle it out for the title of “The BEST Bunny in Durban.” The judges definitely had a difficult task in finding the best one, but after “cracking” all the bunnies the winners were finally chased. Here is the list for Durban’s Best Bunny 2015:
1st – Danny’s House of Curries – Coconut Grove and Tongaat
2nd – Hollywood – Springfield Park
3rd – Cane Cutters – Davenport
We chatted to Danny Naidoo, the winner, who was ecstatic at his win. Danny’s House of Curries opened in 2007. He has been a contented in the competition for the last seven year and made the top 10 every year.
His other accolades include the 2010 People’s choice award, and he won the Title in 2013. Danny runs the business with his wife Rajini, he attributes the secret to his success to his mother-in-law.
“The secret to my success is my 80 year old mother-in-law Radha Mopanar. She blends her very own home made spices and I have combined that with what my Mom taught me”, he said.
Danny’s House of Curries is open 7 days a week, Sunday – Thursday 9am to 11pm and 24 hours on a Friday and Saturday. Some of their specials include vegetable breyani, vegetable curry, braised mutton and cabbage, tripe, trotters, mutton breyani, kebab chutney and fresh cornish.
