Welcome to the weekend, Hello Joburgers! If you’re not sure what to do, then take…
Do you wish that life would hand you lemons right now just because they’re edible? Don’t worry, Hello Joburgers – us too. Broke January is a real thing! Fortunately, if there’s anything Joburgers like better than eating and drinking, it’s doing so on a dime (although most won’t admit to it) – just look at our deep affection for half-price pizza, hole-in-the-wall sports bars and boozy bottomless brunch. We’ve rounded up our top 5 food specials that Jozi has to offer, from top-rate restaurants offering food-and-drink deals, to discounts for the after-work crowd and beyond.
Piza e Vino
At this romantic Italian eatery, two can get buzzed and fed for just R189 every Monday and Tuesday. Settle down at a rustic wooden table and dig into any two medium pizzas (add an extra R25 for a Frutti di Mare) or two pastas (a Spaghetti di Mare will cost you R25 more) with two drinks of your choice – you can pick from regular soft drinks, white or red house wine, or a 500ml Castle Light Draught. This special is not available on public holidays.

Although we’re happy to go in on pizza delivery just to save some dough, sometime s we crave a touch of ambiance that only an eat-in restaurant can provide. On Mondays at Doppio Zero in Sandton City, Clearwater Mall and Cradlestone Mall kids can build their own pizza for free when dining with two adults who order two mains. The free pizza is a kids’ margarita with a choice of three toppings.

Hudsons – The Burger Joint – Parkhurst
Be the boss of your happy hour every weekday between 4:30pm and 6:30pm at this vibey Parkhurst burger bar. Go for the half-price draught beer, house wine and cocktails and stay for the half-price appetisers like triple cheese chilli poppers, free-range crumbed chicken strips and mac ‘n cheese croquettes. And, yes, you’re allowed to get smug when some poor schmoes come in at at 6:31pm and have to pay 72 bucks for a Berry Press and 90 bucks for a Calzoncini.
Corner of 4th Avenue & 14th Street, Parkhurst

Tiger’s Milk – Bryanston
Amidst all the fancy tasting menus and gourmet fine-dining restaurants, let’s not forget the little things that make Joburg great. The only thing better than a burger from Tiger’s Milk impressive burger menu with a seemingly endless list of toppings is two burgers. On Mondays, you can take advantage of their two-for-one special on cheese and mushroom burgers with a beef, chicken or veggie patty served with a side.
63 St James Crescent, Bryanston

Turn ‘n Tender
Every Monday to Friday from 11:30am to 4:30pm you can lunch like a boss and devour a Steak Diane for just R95. The 200g sirloin is topped with creamy mushroom and brandy sauce and served with a side of your choice: chips, pap ‘n gravy, baked potato, grilled sweet potato or a side French salad.
