Frangelicas

Frangelicas in Glenhazel is a household name, thanks to their cheesecake. Let me tell you that it’s nothing short of divine. But did you know that they also serve savoury food, too? Pull up a chair and order anything from French toast and golden crumpets to pan grilled hake and baked potatoes served with delectable toppings.

Where: 1 Long Avenue, Glenhazel, Johannesburg.

Metzuyan

Killarney’s Metzuyan is a haven for those who are kosher. Here, you’ll find delicious chicken noodle soup and Asian spring rolls… they even have a sushi menu! On top of all that, you can tuck into a chicken schnitzel, grilled Scottish salmon and vegetarian-friendly pastas. How’s that for the full shebang?

Where: Killarney Mall, 60 Riviera Road, Killarney, Johannesburg.

Next Door

Next Door’s pizzas are sublime. This restaurant gets very busy so be sure to call ahead and make a booking if you want to secure a table. Here, you’ll find sandwiches, soups, sushi, quiches and everything in-between. They even have dessert pizzas on the menu – have you ever?

Where: 80 Grant Avenue, Norwood, Johannesburg.

The Open Flame

Whether you want to sit down and eat or are catering for a special occasion, The Open Flame has got you covered. They sell a festive Rosh Hashana salad, roasted lamb shoulder and even beef ribs to take home. But if you sit down, choose from fried fish and chicken kebabs…simply delicious.

Where: 9 Northfield Avenue, Glenhazel, Johannesburg.

Michelos

Michelos is a pizza and pasta parlour. Pasta options are plenty – expect to choose between basic napoletana options to mouth watering indiano dishes (creamy tomato infused with garlic and curry, topped with cheese). On the pizza side of life, they’ve truly got it all. The one that sounds like a real winner has got to be the Owner’s Favourite, which is topped with pesto, sweet onion relish and feta. Spelt bases are an option here, too. Plus, you can take home a large pasta, large family-sized salad, a sushi cake or a lasagne if you’re hosting people at home… or for those nights when you simply don’t feel like cooking.

Where: 15 Northfield Avenue, Glenhazel, Johannesburg.

Kosher Nando’s

Your favourite flame grilled chicken, only kosher – yes, please. All the usual suspects are on the menu at the kosher Bramley-based Nando’s branch… from ¼ chicken and chips to strips and spicy rice, burger meals and more. Sit down or take away – the choice is yours.

Where: 27 Aintree Avenue, Bramley, Johannesburg.

The Pie Works

Sometimes, you get a craving for a good old fashioned pie. And where better to get it than at a place dedicated entirely to pies? The Pie Works has drool worthy chicken, curry, mince, potato, schwarma and apple pies. They’ve even got sausage rolls, soups, pizzas and pastas, but the pies truly stand out and the chicken one is nothing short of amazing!

Where: Greenleaf Centre, 74 George Avenue, Sandringham, Johannesburg.

Jozi Blue

A kosher coffee shop? Finally! Their java is great and their food is, too. Find items like salmon and cream cheese salads, classic cheese and tomato sandwiches and omelettes on the menu. They also serve scones, cakes and apple crumble for those of you with a sweet tooth! What’s not to love? Hint: add some cream to your coffee to make it extra indulgent… yum!

Where: 9 Northfield Avenue, Glenhazel, Johannesburg.

Feigels

If it’s traditional Jewish food you want, it’s traditional Jewish food you’ll get at Feigels. They serve it all – latkes, bagels, pies and blintzes. You can also order platters from this place, should you find yourself with a lot of people to feed!

Where: 3 Lyndhurst Discount Centre, Corner Johannesburg and Modderfontein Roads, Lyndhurst, Johannesburg.

Corner Café

Not to be confused with Corner Café in Craighall, this Glenhazel venue is a kosher spot where you’ll find classics on the menu… think along the lines of kippers and eggs for breakfast, as well as grilled fish kebab salads and, of course, bagels with schmear. It’s a delight for taste buds – kosher and non!

Where: Corner Queens Square and Cross Road, Glenhazel, Johannesburg.
