There is a new grill house in town – Chef T Texas Barbeque which is owned and run by a local chef, Tamuka “Chef T” Gwatidzo.
Tamuka is a qualified chef who loves to experiment with meals that are out of the norm. He initially studied political science and it was during this time when he started cooking for his friends over the weekends as a way of entertaining them. This actually became his thing and it is what drove him to attend culinary school to learn more tricks and basics on food presentation. The rest is history for him.
The restaurant opened recently in Avondale at 49 Cork Road, just off King George Avenue. If you’re unfamiliar with the Avondale area, you might have a hard time finding this place. It is easily accessible with public transport and secure parking is available outside the restaurant gate for those who will be driving. The place has a very relaxing atmosphere and guests have the option to choose to sit on couches, tables, garden chairs or by the bar.
Chef T’s menu offers a variety of burger options with the most popular ones being the “Pookie Burger” which is a noodle burger and the “Chef T Double Layer Burger”. All meals are served with a side of onion rings and chips or a garden salad. Other notable main courses include the the grilled chicken with barbeque sauce which also comes with onion rings, chips and a salad. Perfect for sharing!
Chef T’s place also holds karaoke nights every Wednesday from 7pm and has an interesting event every other day. If or when you do visit Chef T’s Texas Barbeque, please do share your experience with us by commenting below.
