Chef Tyrone Kleynhans heads up Eat on Keyes, the just-opened restaurant at Capsicum and Private Hotel School’s Rosebank branch. Open from 7AM to 3PM, the bistro-style restaurant is staffed by students from both schools – food prep and service forming part of their practical studies.
Says Candice Adams, principal for Capsicum Culinary Studio and The Private Hotel School: “We want our students to graduate with some restaurant experience behind them and what better way to do that than by getting them to work in a fully functional restaurant on the campus. It’s a win-win for all. Students get the experience and customers have the opportunity to buy a really affordable meal.”
Adds Chef Tyrone Kleynhans: “Eat! on Keyes also offers workers and residents of the Rosebank area a casual place to drop in and enjoy inexpensive but well-made food.”
All items can be ordered as takeaways in biodegradable packaging: “We consciously do not use plastic straws or single use plastic packaging as we want to ensure our campus is as environmentally friendly as possible,” says Adams.
The menu for breakfast includes Eggs Benedict, Three Egg Omelette, Full English Breakfast, Filled Croissants, and Granola/Muesli with Yoghurt and Fruit. For lunch, there’s open sandwiches with a variety of toppings – Harissa Chicken, Mayo & Pickled Cucumber, Pan-Seared Fillet with Onion Marmalade and Mustard Mayo. Toasted sandwiches are also on offer as well as quiches, wraps and salads. On the sweet side, there’s cake of the day and a mega chocolate brownie with salted caramel sauce – plus tea and coffee.
