Whether you love sport or aren’t the biggest fan, there’s no denying we Joburgers tend to make an event of the big games … even the small ones. Whether it’s night soccer matches, Saturday rugby games or Sunday Formula 1 … there’s always an excuse to light the braai. Naturally, we know just where to get our perfect cuts along with the tastiest cheeses, cold meats and salads – at Thrupps & Co (best butchery) and (best continental deli). Joburgers seriously trust this shop … after all, it’s been around for a whopping 126 years! It may be on our doorstep in Illovo, but people travel for its products (all 29 000 and more of them!). The ham at Christmas is a must on your shopping list and the meat cuts can be used for anything from fine dining to snacks.
The annual Best of Joburg Readers’ Choice Awards celebrates the best of the best.
