TraveLibro South Africa Durban Featured City Bunny Chow

Bunny Chow

When in Durban, you have to sample this dish—a hot and steaming vegetarian or chicken curry filled in a hollowed out loaf of bread called Bunny Chow. It was created in the 1940s to help immigrant Indian workers who worked on the fields to carry their food along as they were barred from entering certain eating places during the Apartheid period. Today, however, this humble dish is quite popular throughout the country. Dig into some spicy Indian fare and savour the experience.
