A candid review … Espresso Caffe & Bistro

Jul 12, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

It doesn’t matter if you’re a local or an out-of-towner – you’ve at least heard of Espresso Caffe & Bistro (and if not, seriously – are you living under a rock?). One of the longer-standing and more consistent restaurants on Parkhurst’s 4th Avenue, people flock […]

A candid review … Ba-Pita

Jun 27, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

If you’re a Gen X born and bred in Joburg, you’ve heard of Ba-Pita, the Middle Eastern takeaway joint that used to exist on Rockey Street in Yeoville. If you worked as a journalist, artist or musician in the late 80s or early 90s, you probably even ate […]

An honest review … Swallows Inn

May 3, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

Very few restaurants in the world – let alone Joburg – can boast about being around for almost 70 years. I’ve travelled all over the world and am a great lover of Chinese food, so I recently decided to visit Joburg’s oldest Chinese restaurant, Swallows […]

An honest review … Lupa Osteria

Apr 16, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

I don’t know about you, but when temperatures start to drop, all I can think about are delicious, carby foods. Y’know – pasta, pizza, all that jazz! I don’t often treat myself to Italian food, but when I do, it better be good. After recently […]

An honest review … Franco’s Pizzeria

Mar 15, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

From crusty wood-fired pizzas and hearty plates of pasta to finely crafted specialities, it’s said that you’ll never go hangry at Franco’s Pizzeria in Parkview. The old-school pizzeria is known to be one of Joburg’s most splendido Italian spots, but does it really live up to its […]

An honest review … Nice on 4th

Feb 20, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

Breakfast in Jozi is a happy affair on Parkhurst’s perennially lively 4th Avenue. But there’s one particularly bright and breezy restaurant serving freshly-baked croissants, stacks of crumpets and oh-so-original ‘egg baskets’ that’s always packed with Joburgers looking for some serious a.m. fuel – Nice on 4th.

An honest review … Tortellino D’Oro

Whether you’re wanting to take a pasta-loving date to one of Joburg’s most romantic restaurants or are craving authentic Neapolitan style pizza where the owners have done their homework, there’s one restaurant that always comes to mind: Tortellino D’Oro in Oaklands. But does this 22-year-old trattoria still […]

An honest review … Douglas + Hale

Jan 15, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

James Diack is synonymous with fine food and wine, so when the Coobs chef and wine-lover announced that he was transforming his Parktown North eatery, The National, into a brand-new wine and cocktail bar concept called Douglas + Hale, I couldn’t wait to go and give it a try.   […]

An honest review … Momo Kuro

Nov 5, 2018, Author: Hello Joburg

I’m going to be honest here: it wasn’t too long ago that when you mentioned the words ‘Asian fusion’ in Joburg, it would trigger a visceral reaction, evoking images of over-sauced hybrid sushi and sad avocado egg rolls (#sorrynotsorry!). But since the opening of the Momo group’s […]

An honest review … Rockets Bryanston

Oct 3, 2018, Author: Hello Joburg

I’ve long been in love with Rockets in Parkhurst (it’s an oldie but goodie, okay!), so when the branded decided to add a mega eatery to its Jozi restaurant empire, I was nothing short of thrilled. Since the four-floor restaurant opened its doors in mid-2017, […]
