New, funky, cool, clever restaurants

Tired of boring restaurants, mundane food and paying for delivery?

new cool restaurants

When I see something foodie and fun that I like, I tweet it from @food24 and I load it to our Facebook page. But, when I think something is Pinterest level cool, or I just want to Instagram it into oblivion - that’s when I load it to my own Facebook page.

Because my friends must know! All of them. Immediately. And they don’t all (as they should) fan the Food24 Facebook page or follow us on Twitter, most have never heard of Pinterest and one of them thinks Instagram is an app for drug dealers.


Some things though just need to be shared with your loved ones straight away. So here goes:

Free delivery (quality) Chinese

Monk’s – this is Chinese food on delivery idea. Check it out... you phone and order, and they deliver your food, apparently in those funky cartons you see in the movies (I’m a sucker for things you see in the movies), for free. And have a quick look at the menu – its simple, and cheap, especially considering the free delivery. I’m told the food is quality.

It’s only available to City Bowlers in Cape Town at the moment. Did I mention the free delivery yet?

Pop-up pizza restaurant

There’s this new “Secret Pizza Restaurant” in De Waterkant (also Cape Town) – You only have to check out the hottie shoving pizzas into a wood fire oven and note the sheer coolness of the place to want race over there and be the first to try it on.

Cape Town hipsters must be Losing Their Shit over Ferdinando’s.

Online sushi

Joburg – you beat us to it! Buying sushi online… what a clever concept! Judging from the reviews the sushi is not only delivered to your home/office (on a pink Vespa) or wherever you might be brainstorming -  but apparently it’s great quality sushi too!

Burritos on Bree

That gorgeous woman who sells "those" burritos at the St Georges Earth Fair Food Market has become so blady popular that she’s opened a restaurant on Bree Street.

It's called Orinoco.

So, please let us know by commenting below, or emailing if you have heard of something quirky, cool or just downright radical opening up. Sharing is caring.

Like my status if you like restaurants!
