National Heritage Day has become synonymous with the art of the braai. So much so, that it has become affectionately known as Braai Day – a day where all cultures, races and creeds come to together to socialize and roast meat over a fire.

If you feel like keeping the braai-making to a minimum this year for Heritage Day, here are the best places to celebrate the public holiday by leaving the braaing to the masters.

Le Venue Restaurant at The House of J.C Le Roux is launching three exciting braai menus in honour of Braai Day. Three different, tantalising á la carte menus will be on offer, including a banting braai menu consisting of a marinated beef skewer, oven roasted Mediterranean vegetables and coriander yoghurt dip at R98 per person. Add roosterbrood and potato with chive cream cheese to the menu for a bit extra, or go all out and indulge in a chermoula chicken kebab, Toulouse sausage with rustic garlic and parsley accompanied by a chef’s salad in a mason jar and a smoked paprika mielie.
