I'm looking for a word for a semi-open structure that is traditionally used for making braais (barbecue) in South Africa. The one I have in mind had a thatched roof, but I reckon that is not necessarily a rule. The building stood in the backyard. The building had one wall on each end, and the space where the other two walls should be was open. the building was of rectangular shape, but I don't think that mattered. I saw many like that when I was in Joburg and Parys. They referred to it with a particular name, but I cannot remember what that was. It was not shed, gazebo, lapa/lapha, rondavel, mokhoro, fale, cabana, chickee/chikee, Tiki hut (or any other kind of hut), palapa, pergola, ramada, barn , shelter,cottage or shack.
For a sample sentence: "Hey, should we have a braai (BBQ) in the *(missing word)".
It looked a bit like this (except that the thatch did not hang this low on the left side - on both sides the thatch was levelled like on the right side of this picture - and the walls on both ends were made of concrete).
