The humble bunny chow is a staple not only in Durban but across South Africa.

A lamb "bunny" is the ultimate indulgence, and it has to be spicy and spilling out of its bread pocket.

A wine to complement your bunny chow might seem like a simple thing to choose because you can pick a wine that goes well with curry — but don't forget that there is the bread portion to consider as well.

Michelle Moller, the sommelier at the Square Cafe and Wine Bar in Century City says there are some tips to keep in mind when choosing a wine to drink alongside the traditional bunny chow.

Try to pick something that's a bit sweet, for this pairing Moller chose a Natural Sweet Red Blend from Arra Vineyards in Stellenbosch.

A sweeter wine will also help to offset the spiciness of your meal. But no matter what wine or drink you choose, don't forget that a bunny chow must be traditional, no variations on the classic because then you can't call it a bunny chow.
