Kudu Grill is part of the Kudu Collective, a small restaurant group in south London that was founded by Amy Corbin, who has hospitality in her veins and chef husband Paddy Williams. Kudu is based on braai cooking – the South African equivalent of a BBQ with food cooked over charcoals, which nods to Paddy’s South African heritage. The restaurant is a very well-designed room which reminded us of the best of NYC, with beautiful lighting, wooden panels and velvet booths. Kudu’s menu is big on grilled meats, fish and veg but you shouldn’t skip the snacks or starters either. Grilled potato bread, lardo and wild garlic, along with some of the house-made biltong is the perfect start and the beef tartar delivers big flavours, pimped up with harissa, coriander and crispy shallots. As for the braai, try the whole black bream with zhug butter roti; a huge fish that you can wrap up like tacos with the accompanying breads. Kudu Grill is a very welcome addition to the south London scene and if you live in the area, it should be at the top of your hit list.
