A candid review … The ‘New’ Doppio Zero Sandton City

Feb 19, 2020, Author: Hello Joburg

Dining out on weekend mornings may be a Joburg institution, but too often the best brunch in the City of Gold gets messed up by substandard dishes, watered down cocktails and long lines (ugh!). But don’t despair, Joburgers: Doppio Zero in Sandton City recently reopened […]

Dec 13, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

We’re mad about meat, so we know that Joburg is home to some of the best steakhouses and grills in the country whether we’re after a 1kg tomahawk ribeye or Argentinian asado. A few weeks ago, we wanted savour sirloin, chateaubriand, fillet steak and beyond somewhere new and decided to go to Che Argentine Grill in […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.
