Set in a bungalow-inspired atmosphere with South African sanctuary vibes (there’s even a pair of gilded rhino overlooking the dining space), guests are taken on an unparalleled visual journey rivaled only by the equally explorative menu. Contemporary furnishings adorn the dramatic setting that perfectly suits the unusual specialties on the menu. For those who have never tried South African foods, sosaties (beef kabobs with sweet apricot curry), Sosaties (skewers of beef filet with apricot curry sauce), Piri-Piri coated jumbo prawns, and biltong (dried, cured meat native to South Africa), are staples of South African cooking.  These menu standouts complemented with a signature cocktail such as the Van Der Hum (rich, orange flavored brandy) offer an authentic taste of the nation. The wine list at 1o Degrees offers a substantial collection of both red and white wines from South Africa with highlights including the Pinotage which is made from the country’s unique red wine grape, that harmonizes well with curries and seafood.
