Who First Started Making Bunny Chow?
The bunny chow was created in Durban, home to a large community of people of Indian origin. The precise origins of the food are disputed, although its creation has been dated to the 1940s. It was also sold in Gwelo, Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) during World War II and is still sold in the nearby town of Kadoma, formerly known as Gatooma.
Bunny Chow – Wikipedia
Bunny chow, often referred to as a bunny, is a South African fast food dish consisting of a hollowed-out loaf of bread filled with curry. It originated in the Durban Indian community. A small version of the bunny chow that uses only a quarter loaf of bread is sometimes called a kota (“quarter”), a name it shares with spatlo, a South African dish that evolved from the bunny chow.

The Origin of the Bunny Chow
Stories of the origin of bunny chow date as far back as the migrant Indian workers’ arrival in South Africa. One account suggests that migrant workers from India who were brought to South Africa to work the sugar cane plantations of KwaZulu-Natal (Port Natal) required a way of carrying their lunches to the field; a hollowed out loaf of bread was a convenient way to transport their vegetarian curries.

The European Tourists and the Bunny Chow
The Europeans need to be Durbanites and taste the famous Bunny Chow. Two Bunny Chows were ordered and this is the outcome of the experience!!! Quentin (The French guy) couldn’t say a word, he needed more water. Theresa
(The German Tank) couldn’t maintain her silence as she normally does
during a meal. She ordered a Coke Zero but kept saying it’s not too hot.
Carlos (Our favorite German Stalker) Mmmm! Well, he was on drugs! Lol!
