Shesa Nyama: Man’s Braai Place in Queenstown, Eastern Cape


In Cape Town, we have Maphindi’s, Mzoli’s, Kwa-Ace, AmaZink etc.  Joburgers chill and hang out at Industrial Shisa Nyama, Midrand Shesa Nyama, Busy Corner, Chaf-Pozi (the list is endless).  In Durban there’s Max’s place!

In Queenstown we have Man’s Braai Place.  One can sit down inside, outside or in the braaing area and wait for their meat while it gets braaied.  The place is mostly packed on weekends, month ends and more especially during school holidays.  What I love about Man’s Braai Place is their flavoursome menu, there’s a whole range varying from:

  • Umngqusho Onembotyi (Samp and Beans)
  • IDombolo (Dumplings) / Steam Bread
  • PaP
  • Rice
  • Rosterkoek
  • Beef Stew
  • Mutton Stew
  • Pork Stew
  • Umleqwa (Running Chicken)
  • Chicken Wings – Peri- Peri flavor is the favourite.
  • Gizzards
  • Traditional Ginger Beer (Gemere)


It is definitely worth checking out if you happen to be around the Queenstown area.   If you’ve been to Man’s Braai Place, what do you love most about  the hangout?  I would love to hear your views.
