John Dory’s

From the 19th of October 2007, the new menus at John Dory’s Fish and Grill restaurants will feature the Heart Mark Restaurant Programme symbol for selected meal items. The Heart Mark restaurant symbol is a guideline for customers to recognise healthier meals when eating at any one of the twenty restaurants in the John Dory’s group. The goal of The Heart and Stroke Foundation is to improve the Heart Health by offering the public a simple and reliable way of identifying the most Heart Healthy menu choices at selected restaurants by using the Heart Mark Restaurant symbol. The programme is designed to assist the public in making healthier choices when dining out by encouraging restaurants to provide healthier food option and thereby join forces with the Heart and Stroke Foundation in its fight against heart disease. These options are lower in fat, cholesterol, salt and where applicable, higher in fibre.

John Dory’s is offering starters and main meals that have the Heart Mark Restaurant programmes approval. The starters include the Mussel Pot in Neapolitan sauce as well as oysters. For the main meals, health conscious customers can now choose one of a variety of salads such as, crab, smoked chicken with avocado, seared tuna or a fresh Garden Salad, all of which can be ordered with the dressing on the side. Other main meals include the linefish, kingklip, sole, pan seared tuna and salmon, all grilled in lemon and served with a side salad or the full Mussel Pot with Neapolitan sauce. Seafood is not the only item that is approved, the 200 gram Sirloin steak or grilled chicken breast served with a side salad can be ordered.

With obesity figures in South Africa increasing at an alarming rate, it is reassuring to know that there is a restaurant group concerned with the health of its customers. John Dory’s Fish and Grill is committed to providing good quality food at affordable prices and the Heart Mark Restaurant Programme approval of selected menu items extends this commitment.
