A SOUTH African-style restaurant, deli and doughnut shop has opened in Barons Quay, aiming to bring a unique dining experience to Northwich.

Culinary Concept is owned by Rayner and Lynika Müller who have worked in the food industry for more than 14 years, moving from South Africa to the UK in 2008.

When Rayner was made redundant from his executive head chef job in 2018, the ambitious couple decided to set up their own family business and work towards their dream of owning their own restaurant.

The new restaurant, which can be found next to Crate Cheshire and Sticky Paws in Barons Quay, is open daily from 9am, serving brunch, lunch, pizzas, coffees, cocktails and beers.

There’s also food-to-go with a deli counter offering salads and sushi, plus you can sample their famous doughnuts when you eat in or take away.

The store has a small shop where customers can pick up South African-style delicacies, as well as locally sourced food products.

Rayner said: "We’d like to thank everyone who has supported us on this journey and visited the store so far.

"We've had such a positive response from local people who have never tried food like this before, but have embraced it and the feedback has been wonderful."

Lynika added: "We’re delighted to be finally open and bringing something different to Northwich.

"If you haven’t visited yet you can expect a warm welcome, delicious food and whether you want to eat in or need to grab and go, we are here for you."

Barons Quay centre manager Lina Higuita said: "Another great addition to Barons Quay, Culinary Concept certainly brings some South African flavour to the centre and the town.

"It’s great that they’ve had such a positive start and I know that Rayner and Lynika have many more exciting plans for the future, so watch this space."

Culinary Concept is open 9am until 5.30pm from Sunday to Thursday.

On Fridays and Saturdays it is open from 9am until 11pm.
