Glutinous milkshakes at XO Patisserie, Melville

On the menu: Cronut Milkshake

This is going to stick in your mind and onto your taste buds. This holy cronut milkshake is an indulgence not to be missed.

A double-thick Stracciatella (vanilla or chocolate) or coffee-chocolate Sicilian gelato-based shake, topped with a decadent cronut. This will convert even the savoriest palate.

Juicy burgers at Teta Mari, Illovo

On the menu: Sloppy Joe

This saucy beef mince burger comes on a toasted bun with a side of Big Korn Bites (the red ones, of course!). This gem reigns supreme when it comes to meaty goodness. We don’t even care how many calories it is!

Crispy fried chicken at The Federal, Melville

It’s basically begging to be devoured. It hits all the right spots… crispy Southern fried, buttermilk marinated, free range chicken. Taste buds clapping yet? Well, they also offer two sides with it, including cheese fries and craft beer battered onion rings. Heaven!

Crispy toasted cheeses at Eat Your Heart Out, Maboneng

On the menu: Cheez Toast

Just imagine a warm freshly baked and toasted Kitka roll, served with cheese, tomato and red onion. This cheesy goodness might not fit in your mouth all at once, but it’s worth a try! It’s as plain Jane as it comes, and we loved every bite.

Gooey Belgian waffles at Paoletto Café, Edenvale

On the menu: Banana Caramel Waffle

This sliced banana is a sweet success, smothered with a creamy caramel sauce, all on top of their famous freshly made waffles. While you’re at it, order a side of Bar-One sauce because you’re worth it! These symmetrical cushions of tenderness are made using only the farmer’s freshest ingredients (eggs, milk, butter and flour). It’s a soul-warming kinda decadence that we dig!
