Africa’s first “green city”, Menlyn Maine is where it’s at for all things cool.

Eat At Menlyn Maine

Something’s Cooking By J

There is a mixture between J’s Portuguese roots, his South African upbringing, and the singer and TV star’s latest obsessions such as Japanese cuisine and healthy alternatives to name a few. At Something’s Cooking all the dude wants is to create a memorable experience for you, your friends, and your family… and he pulls it off quite well.

Guy Fieri’s Kitchen + Bar

The menu sings songs of long dusty roads, greasy diners and big red Corvettes. What’s interesting is that where one would expect the starters to be, there is something called shareables. Now, instead of a little garden salad or a modest prawn cocktail, you will find Guy’s infamous trash can nachos, sashimi won-tacos and chilli cheese fries.

Turn ‘n Tender

As south Africans, we love steaks (why do you think Spur is doing so well!) In fact, Turn ‘n Tender has risen to the top of the local food chain and we’re excited to see a franchise pop up in Menlyn Maine. We’ll have a rib eye on the bone (the only way a rib eye should be eaten) and a double order of chips!

Koi

Sushi has shot up in popularity in recent years. We implore that you check out Koi. From classic California rolls to fancy fashion sandwiches, they’ve got it all… and it’s pretty tasty as far as our sushi standards go.
