Joburg is a foodie’s paradise … just ask Ryan Keys! He gives us the lowdown on his fave places to chow down in the city.
Best Asian restaurant
When I’m in the mood, I love going to Kai Thai in Rivonia! You have to try the angry duck if you like spicy food! The deep fried ice cream is also to-die-for if you have a sweet tooth.
Best beat-the-budget (inexpensive) restaurant
The most cost effective yet delicious gem of a restaurant is 4th Avenue Coffee Roasters. The food is great and the coffee is even better. It’s all at a great price as well.
Best Greek restaurant
Parea Taverna is my favourite Greek restaurant by far! The vibe, dancers and breaking of plates are my favourite aspects of this restaurant. It’s a good way to spend a Friday evening.
Best hotel restaurant
I love the Hyde Park hotel! It’s the best hotel in Joburg because there’s always a buzz! My favourite thing to do is watch the sun go down, relaxing by the pool at the San Deck! The hotel rooms are also amazing.
Best Italian restaurant
Café Del Sol Botanico is an incredible restaurant if you’re looking for some Italian food! I always enjoy the food and have never had a bad meal there. It serves the most delicious pastas I’ve ever had in my life!
I’m obsessed with Wombles Steakhouse in Bryanston! The food is to-die-for, from the beef steaks to the kudu steaks! The fire pits outside (along with a glass of red wine and great conversation) is my weekly hang-out spot.
