Chris’ dining faves

We had a chat with Top Billing’s Chris Jaftha about his fave dining spots … check it out.

Best place to get an English breakfast

Fournos in Dunkeld has great service and food and it’s a breakfast spot I frequent only with my parents … I think that’s what makes it so special.

Best neighbourhood restaurant

The Schwarma Co in Norwood. The lamb ribs here are second to none. And don’t let the quantity or portion sizes of the food fool you … the quality is superb!

Best new restaurant

Grove Green Cafe in Parktown North. They’re on the healthy side, but the food is very tasty. So if you’re looking at eating clean and convenience is what you’re after, then this cafe is for you. From the best bunless burgers to delicious quinoa salads and smoothies, they’ve got what you need … all fresh and delicious!

Best portuguese restaurant

The place for the most peri-licious Portuguese food is Parreirinha. It’s always fully booked!

Best restaurant for a burger

BGR in Rosebank.

Best restaurant for a business lunch

JB’s Corner in Melrose. The vibe is great and the food is great … and it feels like you have some sort of privacy (always a winner for a business meeting!).

Best restaurant to go for a little romance

The most romantic restaurant is Morrells … from the decor to the cuisine to a pianist who plays during dinner – it’s a must for all those romantics out there.

Best seafood restaurant

When you find a goodie, it’s hard to go elsewhere – this is the case with Pigalle.

Best spot to head for brunch

Craft in Parkhurst.

Best spoil-yourself (expensive/blow-the-budget) restaurant

The best restaurant to go for a spoil yourself treat is Arque Champagne Crescent  in Sandton City.

Best steak restaurant

My dad grills the best steak in Jozi, truth be told, but if I have to say a restaurant then most definitely Metropolis at Montecasino.

Best sushi restaurant

The best sushi spot is Rainbow Sushi in Norwood. The portions and prices are really great with the quality to match. Rainbow wins on both fronts!

Best vegetarian restaurant

The Greenside Café. If you’re on vegetarian side of things you’ll know why this cafe is great. If not, give it a try … you’ll soon agree!
