Food Joburg

Best burger bar in town

Beef Cakes JHB-1

is Beefcakes in my opinion*

Where else in Joburg do you get to drink an endless variety of pink drinks, play bingo, daaance and get to eat a proper burger while doing it? I had dinner there a few weeks ago with a few lovely local bloggers and had such a good time. I don’t know if any of you remember the movie Pleasantville (?) but I felt like I was in the Pleasantville diner.. where all the cool 50’s kids hang out on a friday night, drink bubblegum milkshakes and eat hamburgers.¬†

We went on a tuesday night, which is bingo night, hosted by Molly. We tried our best to win but think we were slightly pre-occupied with our Watermelon cosmos and Lemon drop Martini’s.

¬†Later on in the evening they brought out these (above)… which are deep fried twinkie’s and banana spring rolls. Oh. my. word. You have to try these at least once in your life. They will change you. (Also if you wanted to know… the burger I ordered above is a Beach Boy which is also delicious).

Find Beefcakes at Illovo Muse.

198 Oxford Rd, Illovo.

They’re open Tues – Sun. Be sure to book a table for dinner!
