We love Jozi … but sometimes, even we die-hard city fans need to escape the hustle. So grab a buddy (or your date), take a drive into the countryside and … breathe. Casalinga Ristorante Italiano (best lunch in the country) – which has scooped an award in our Best of Joburg competition for 20 years – is on an organic farm that grows herbs and veggies. (This spot’s food for your soul as well as your plate.) The chef uses only fresh, natural ingredients and while the dishes are classic, they have a modern touch – try the slow-roasted lamb shank with a drizzle of Nona’s home-made mint sauce or the prime beef fillet paired with a delicious wine (the wine list is superb!).
The annual Best of Joburg Readers’ Choice Awards celebrates the best of the best.
The survey gives readers the chance to tell us what and who makes living in Joburg so great - and it give recognition to deserving local businesses
