Chester Mortonson is a devotee to down-to-earth, honest country food and, utilising his extensive experience in restaurants like Kitcheners in Braamfontein and Chester’s Pub & Grill in Warner Beach, he moved to the KwaZulu- Natal Midlands to open Gosh! That’s Great Nosh. Open from Wednesday to Sunday for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu sports typical pub grub suggestions like locally sourced bangers and mash, but also a range of delectable gourmet burgers and daily specials. I went for the plump, green-lipped mussels bathed in a Mediterranean-style broth. New to the menu were the butter prawn and feta samosas that disappeared far too quickly. Well worth dallying for in the glorious Midlands.
