Ndash Food is a South African (Mzansi) food business that specialises in serving the true and rich history of our Food culture.

We are a company that is passionate about all that is South African because it makes us very unique, our love for Mzansi food fueled the fire in us to go out and share the unique and delicious taste of South Africa.

Mr. Sithembiso Ndashe, the founder of Ndash Food, started this business late 2013 as part of a South African culture that takes place every Monday called “Mogodu Mondays”. Due to the fact that in the suburbs of Jozi it was hard to get a great South African meal, this idea was born with the 1st POP Up kitchen in Midrand where an event was hosted. Serving the best of Traditional Food + Lifestyle.

Due to his passion for cooking, he graduated in Marketing and he turned his love for food into a business.

Currently the business provides the following services; POP UP Kitchens, Catering services, Food and Experience Events. We pride ourselves with offering great food that is strictly all about Mzansi. Coming from a simple South African meal such as 7 Colours , Traditional Food infused with our special taste to a Braai.

We understand that times have changed, people have evolved but our food culture should not because our food heritage is rich and we should share it with the world and the generations to come.
