Nabibya's Fast Foods - QuarterBunny

Nabibya’s Fast Foods
Luke Comins

Another year, another bunny… it was the first day that we were all back at the office after our year-end leave, rather ampt to get back to the plot – to klup more bunnies!

Where to now? Our lahnee mentioned that he was driving down Umgeni Road and, at the intersection of Walter Gilbert Road (where the new Moses Mabhida Stadium is located), spotted a couple of wit ou’s sitting at the tables outside a fast food outlet eating bunnies. He suggested that I vint there on my scoot and collect a take-away for us.

Nabibya’s Fast Foods has been around for 21 years and the current owner, Aslam, has been the owner for 11 years. I had a nice chat with him while I waited for my order and he’s adamant that he sells the best bunny this side of town (umm…), 80% of his customers are wit ou’s, and his mutton bunnies are actually lamb. I love it when the owners are keen for a genuine chat.

The kiff thing about all the outlets along Umgeni Road is that their bunnies are reasonably priced and although a good few are not worth a return trip, Nabibya’s scored rather well.

We all had a quarter broad beans for our first visit as we’re not always keen to hit meat bunnies when we go somewhere that could (potentially) be dodgy. The taste was flippen good, plenty of gravy and not too hot, but the broad beans could have been a bit softer (3½/5). Size was good (4/5) – yet another spot that’s serving bunnies in the mini loaf we see a lot of these days hence why it’s more like a half bunny in height. The vibe was very Durban-style with a few tables out on the street and the constant sound of trucks and buses going past. This one’s the closest fast food outlet to the ABSA and new Moses Mabhida Stadiums and we’re sure Aslam’s going to sell spans of bunnies during the 20-10 FIFA World Cup matches held literally across the road.

Price scored tops at 5/5.They sell a good quarter broad beans/veg for R9.50 and their quarter chicken & quarter mutton (lamb) is R24.00. The usual Indian fast foods are available on their menu and also seem reasonable. They did fail my serviette test though! Total points – 18½ / 25.

We shall return and give that ‘lamb’ bunny a review…
