Experience delicious meals at some of Pretoria’s exciting new restaurants.
If you’re looking for new eateries to visit this year, Pretoria’s restaurant industry seems to be rapidly expanding with a selection of interesting places.
Located on 16th Street at the new The Village, Burger Bistro is the latest retro-style, hip and happening hot spot specialising in burgers, which opened in Hazelwood last month. This comfortable ’70s- and ’80s-style eatery offers a variety of fun burgers with quality 200g patties, specially baked sesame buns and exciting toppings to entertain your taste buds.
For something simply delicious try the Wild Thing with fried halloumi, raspberry sauce and rocket, or the 3 Stooges with streaky bacon, Danish feta and avocado. For those who are more adventurous, tuck into the Elvis with peanut butter sauce and bacon. The burgers are so big you won’t be sure how to eat them, but you are bound to dig in right away. Wash them down with a tasty milkshake like the tiramisu, lavender or candy floss.
Situated at Eastdale Pavilion on the corner of Solomon Mahlangu and Jacqueline drives, bright pink, orange, blue, yellow and green colours as well as the smell of popcorn will invite you into Jo Mexican which opened in November last year.
Enjoy a tasty popcorn snack on arrival as you decide which traditional Mexican dish to taste. Start with chipotle chicken wings crumbed in tortilla chips, oats and rosemary, while sipping on a frozen margarita with tequila. For mains have chicken enchilada with chicken strips, mixed greens, confit tomatoes and pico de gallo salsa. The food is not too spicy, but fresh chilli can be added to all dishes which can be accompanied with sides of your choice such as classic guacamole, jalapeno sour cream, gallo pinto rice and Almost Death sauce. Wrap up your Mexican experience with the tres leches cake soaked in three milks and served with sweet cream.
