The Dog's Bollocks

It's not a restaurant, it's a driveway - and it serves the most awesome burgers. Also known as The Yard and during the day as The Bitches' Tits this little hideaway off Buitenkant Street in Cape Town's CBD is a proper foodie gem!

It’s a hipster city, literally, with 3 totally stellar food loving concepts all tucked away on Roodehek St in Gardens.  And, Deluxe coffee, the pinnacle of an awesome roast, sports their headquarters there too. They’ve got Mucky Mary’s that serves a “hubcap” breakfast until 4. The Bitches Tits rocking classic sandwiches from around the world like the sexy meaty Philly cheese steak.  And, if you are lucky (and punctual enough), the Dogs Bollocks serves a daily dose of 50 gourmet burgers (after 5).
 
They are currently in the finishing stages of brewing their own craft beer.

Tip: The Yard actually looks like a low budget garage until you take a peek inside, but doesn’t that make the prize of finding it that much sweeter?

        Was positively intrigued by the decor and the waitress/chef who exuded the enthusiasm of a cheerleader. As for the “world famous” burger… not so much NAH. It all came tumbling down like an iceberg lettuce avalanche on the slippery slide of a good dose of miracle-whip… Confronted with the messy heap, I observed the ‘giant burger’ consist of 50% iceberg lettuce , 25% ordinary white giant bun, and the residue of pretty average looking and tasting ingredients… And if you do plan to pay a visit, take your own drinks because options at the bar are very limited.

        Half of the adventure was finding the place, the other half, figuring out how to attack the giant burgers! Amazing good vibes burger joint - awesome chilled music to suit most tastes (assuming that you have good taste) and a very friendly atmosphere. Make sure to check online or call ahead to confirm that there are still burgers left, because they sell out every night! Buns were fresh, patty was homemade, greens were fresh and sauces hit the spot perfectly - the only thing that you'll regret is that you might have to eat your burger over 2-3 sittings, because believe me, the portions are no joke! =)
