Grab Something Tasty At The Greens Grillhouse

Believe it or not, I’m a huge fan of golf (the sport, not the car – I know what you were thinking wink wink). Anyway, in my opinion, there’s nothing better than indulging in a tasty lunch with a vibrant green golf course as the backdrop! If this sounds like your cup of tea (how could it not?), then you have to pay a visit to The Greens Grillhouse.

The Greens Grillhouse can be found on the grounds of Eye of Africa – an absolutely stunning golf and residential estate, located in Joburg’s southern suburbs. The estate itself is going through a huge infrastructure investment plan and has added this little gem to enhance offerings for both residents and visitors alike!

My fiancé, Brenden, and I popped in there for lunch the other day, and I’m thrilled to say that the food was so good! The Greens Grillhouse has a number of different options, depending on what you’re looking for – there are breakfast and snack options, and they even have a menu with everything from starters and salads to burgers and pizza – needless to say they’ve got something for everyone!

Determined to try as much as we could (everything looked amazing!), Brenden and I decided to order starters, a main meal and dessert (after all, we don’t pig out often – honestly!). To start, Brenden ordered the salt and chilli calamari (R48) while I went with the salmon rose bruschetta (R51). The calamari was spicy and appetising (yes, I poached one or two pieces from him), and the salmon bruschetta was amazing and incredibly filling (I genuinely didn’t know if I would have space for more food!).

Speaking of more food, for mains, Brenden had the rosemary and thyme lamb chops (R145) with a side of crumbed mushrooms (R35) while I had the spare rib and bacon pizza (R87), which I adored – if there’s one thing you have to know about me, it’s that I love my ribs!

Oh, and Brenden made sure to mention that the chops were perfectly cooked and that he loved the way they were seasoned. To end off a rather indulgent afternoon (I was afraid I’d have to be rolled out of there!), we shared a bowl of ice cream and BarOne sauce (R30) – the sugary treat was so satisfying after all that meaty goodness!

The temptation to play a round or two on the golf course was almost too great to resist but we opted to take a drive around the stunning estate instead – I don’t think I could have walked anywhere at that point! So, the next time you want to grab a bite and bask in the sunlight while practicing your swing, or just want to indulge in something yummy and hearty, pop by The Greens Grillhouse – you’ll be glad you did!
