I love food. But then again, who doesn’t? Foodies will tell you, “there is nothing better than travelling through a mouthwatering journey of cuisines“. And we agree.
With all that said, variety is my middle name, so let’s tuck into these awesome foodie spots jam-packed with deliciousness.
Many could easily confuse the Vietnamese cuisine to Japanese, although their food may sometimes look very similar, the “Viets” are all about aroma and flavour, which is why we had to introduce you to Saigon.
Saigon is based in Rivonia and is one of the few Vietnamese joints that Joburgers can visit and drool over. Their food is out of this world with flavour and unique touches, with a variety of meat dishes that will have you clueless as to where to begin.
Saigon has amazing service and the environment is very relaxed, so you can definitely enjoy taking a loved one or even a business associate there.
I am in love with souvlaki (lamb to be more specific) and there is nothing better than enjoying succulent meat dressed in Tzatziki and hugged with fresh Pita. First place that came to mind after this drool-worthy thought is Parea.
This gem hidden in Illovo has been around for over 20 years and really lives up to the traditional Greek feel. The minute you set foot into this spot, you will know what I am talking about. The food is impeccable, they have a wide variety to choose from. Plus, they make it to perfection. Their lamb is my weakness.
I have three words. Yum. Yum. Yum! Chipas is one of the newest restaurants to grace The Zone@Rosebank, and people are loving it. The food here is just amazing, always fresh and bursting with flavour. Something that I also love are the colours they put into the mix – very inviting.
The decor here is something that stands out, with dark touches and simplicity that will have you inspired by the trendy minimalist look.
Les delices de France
If you rolled that R without shame, I am certain you said it correctly. Les delicas de France reminds me why French is called the language of love, their food is absolutely divine.
This amazing restaurant is situated in the west of Joburg, Roodepoort, but it is worth visiting. The spot is spontaneous, warm and would make for a romantic day out.
My favourite has to be the Duck Leg Confit, this duck is cured with peace sauce.
