Taste of Joburg 2015

Taste Of Joburg 2015Every year, The Taste of Joburg is the most anticipated Restaurant Festival in Gauteng… An unmissable foodie day out!

This year’s featured restaurant list is a selection of new additions and old friends ranging from Italian cuisine to Thai, French and Indian. “Selecting restaurants is always challenging because we want the show to grow every year,” says Festival Director, Justine Drake. “The expectations of the evolving Joburg palate are now such that we can afford to be a little more daring with our restaurant choices and I think our restaurants talk to that.

The full list of restaurants that will be there can be found on Taste of Joburg’s website: http://www.tasteofjoburg.com/restaurant-list/

    Escondido – Executive Chef Martine Christian
    I read the articles on several of the Restaurants, but the story behind Chef Martine (coming from Cape Town)became the Executive Chef inspired me to try her cooking. The menu changing every week is exciting for the public, the friendliness, love the idea of Tapas kind of dining which I never tried before. Looking forward to Escondido – “Hidden Treasure”.
