If you're into chicken, coffee, and... surfing... Afro's Chicken is THE best food stop you can make in Durban, South Africa.
Unmissable in its bright yellow container on the Durban beachfront, this food shack's simple menu draws queues even on the rainiest of days.
The friendly little shop is perched right on the promenade, across from some of the best surf spots in the Durban area. Surfers can even leave their car keys at the shack, and stack up their boards on the special shelving while having lunch. Oh, and there's a shower for those sandy feet too.
The menu offers the simplest of choices. Chicken burgers (lemony or spicy) or chicken strips (ditto). Chips or coleslaw. That's it.
But my word, it's the best chicken strips you will ever have! And I'm not joking. There are enough reviews and Afro's Addicts out there to prove my point.
I do think that a lot of its charm comes from its atmosphere. The ocean breaking before you, the shared benches and tables, longboards whirring by on the pavement, and the spectacular Durban weather.
The original Afro's has now branched out, with eight shops in total throughout the Durban area. But my favorite is still the yellow container on the beach.
Spicy chicken strips, with your feet in the sand and a hot cappucino to add some spike to that burning tongue. You can't go wrong.
