Johannesburg''s role as the economic hub of South Africa, if not
the entire continent, has attracted businessmen and investors from
all over the world and a wealth of restaurants to cater to them.
Johannesburg restaurants offer a wide range of cuisine, with ethnic
African fare and traditional Afrikaans dishes, as well as
international options to satisfy every craving imaginable. Eating
out in Johannesburg offers not only variety in cuisine ethnicity
but price and quality too, with a range of up-market, casual,
fast-food and street vendor options. Up-market Johannesburg
restaurants, featuring both local and international menus, are
located in areas like Rivonia, Sandton, Illovo and Melrose Arch.
More casual eateries, such as caf?ęs and steakhouses, can be found
in Parktown North and Benoni. There are fast-food outlets
throughout the city, as well as various local street vendors
selling savoury pies,
(sausage) rolls and flame-grilled
(maize) cobs. The more adventurous diners could
venture out to Soweto to dine at one of its numerous
(communal bar/canteen) venues. This huge variety of
Johannesburg restaurants makes eating out in the ''City of Gold'' a
truly rewarding experience. Many restaurants are closed on Mondays,
and reservations are recommended.
