13 May Date Night Spot: Roasting Jacks
This new restaurant tantalised
our taste buds with their succulent food. They offer a wide variety of
fabulously creative and equally tasty side dishes that make for something
deliciously different, in contemporary dining, for Joburg’s discerning Foodies.
The bistro recently opened at the revamped Wedge Shopping Centre, Rivonia, and
is open for lunch and dinner.
Even if the power goes off, this restaurant is
able to function fabulously well. They offer eat-in and takeaway meal options.
Dr. Bae and I started off with 6 delicious chicken wings and a garlic mayo sauce (R38). The basting is home-made and delicious, you can taste the spices, the rosemary. It’s simply delicious. We then each had a burger, Dyllan had the pineapple relish slaw burger – Grilled chicken breast topped with corn slaw and spicy pineapple relish served on freshly baked roll (R65). This burger is the perfect balance of sweet. spicy and fulling. A great option for people who enjoy a little heat.
I had the bacon jam and cheddar burger – Grilled chicken breast topped with bacon jam, and creamy Emmental sauce, topped off with white cheddar. Served on freshly baked roll (R79). This is a deliciously sweet, salty and tasty burger. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
We ended off our date by sharing a gingerbread, milkshake (R45). This milkshake actually tasted like gingerbread, it was sinfully delicious. This extra thick shake encompasses caramel and ginger biscuit pieces. Yum! I’m going back just for this milkshake! It’s a MUST TRY!
