Sun International recently invited journalists to visit Time Square, the new casino it is building at Menlyn Maine in Pretoria. Along with a tour of the casino floor that was under construction, with a focus on the tech being used in the games, we were introduced to the managers responsible for various aspects of the casino – before being ushered into the kitchen. There we met the kitchen staff, who were introduced by group executive chef Ronald Ramsamy.
What followed was an amazing five-course meal, courtesy of Sun International.
