Somizi Mhlongu announced that in June next year his restaurant will open in Parkhurst and it will be a small intimate venue that sits only 30 tables.
He promises that this restaurant will be the first of many and will be an experience for his patrons.
The Parkhurst restaurant will feature a cocktail bar and from Somizi's description, it will be quite a powerful feature.
He made the announcement at the launch of his new cookbook. Somizi Mhlongo celebrated his cookbook Dinner at Somizi's: I Am Not a Chef at the launch of the book with a host of celebrity friends.
Somgaga held the event in honour of the release of the cookbook, which is officially out in December, and was joined by his husband, Mohale.
The personality took to social media to post about his launch and gave a specific shout-out to his beloved hubby for being so supportive.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Somizi first announced his cookbook and fans came through with the pre-orders.
Somizi Mhlongo announced his second book and he is buzzing. After discovering a love for cooking, the amateur chef has written his very own cookbook. Having launched his own cooking show, Dinner At Somizi’s, Somizi knew that his journey with food was not going to stop there. A cookbook was something he had been wanting to do for a while and the moment has finally arrived.
The book has been cleverly titled Somizi’s I Am Not A Chef and is a simple cookbook that allows fans the chance to recreate some of his favourite dishes. Good old soul food.
Somizi has a limited number of books ready printed for pre-order but has warned that they will go quickly. Somizi is ready to break records with this book!
“Judging by first day of pre order sales yesterday I'm confident that we are going to break the records... thanks to everyone who has pre-ordered and apologies to those who encountered problems... the system nearly crashed... to everyone who hasn't placed their orders, let's go, we still have a bit of time but I'd advise you do it ASAP because there's a limited number of the first batch...”
