Sep 10, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

Hello Joburgers, Food Lover’s Eatery has a brand-new branch in the revamped Bank City area and here’s everything you need to know about it.


What new services and products will you be offering to the Bank employees, visitors to the Precinct and shoppers from the surrounding area, that they don’t currently have?

Food Lover’s Eatery offers delicious traditional lunch options such as burgers, prego rolls, chicken, schwarmas, paninis and focaccias – it excels in its array of salads, wraps, sushi and fresh juices. A new addition is the “Pap”arazzi station that promises to delight the homegrown palette with traditional pap and a selection of toppings such as beef, boerewors, chicken and stampmielies and beans. Following international trends, the Food Lover’s Eatery also offers a build-your-own Poke Bar and a Fresh Society department where you can customise your fresh juice order. We are also constantly updating the salad menus to include healthy on-trend ingredients such as quinoa and whole grains.

What makes Food Lover’s Eatery such a successful offering in the food retail space?

The key focus on convenience guarantees that a consumer is able to visit the store every day for a full year and enjoy a different meal everyday without any repetition. All meals are made on site daily, with an emphasis on the highest quality and freshness – and no food is carried over to the next day. Food Lover’s Eatery boasts a wide variety of affordable contemporary dishes and convenience meal options – In short, a hot-food emporium with a distinct New York deli feel.

Will this store also have a Seattle Coffee shop or other stores within the store – what are its/their specialities?

Yes, this store will definitely have a Seattle Coffee Co. outlet, located at the entrance of the store. In addition to this, other food offerings within the store includes:

A pasta bar and a pizza bar, offering a little taste of Italy at an affordable price

A sushi belt with fresh sushi, made in store daily by the Food Lover’s Eatery sushi chefs

What is your view on the future of the CBD, Fraser street and FNB’s revitalisation initiative?

“We feel there is a resurgence and a new energy in the CBD of Johannesburg and this is presenting good value for redevelopment. This has been happening for a while with Maboneng and Ghandi Square, but is picking up momentum again. It takes committed landowners to invest and develop. FNB’s substantial investment in the Bank City precinct keeps this momentum going and is an exciting opportunity for us to expand our brands footprint. It’s city urban regeneration at its best.” – Gary Pienaar, Food Lover’s Market.


The new Food Lover’s Eatery is open Monday to Friday, 9am-6pm

5-19 Kerk St, Johannesburg, 2000
