The Best of Joburg winners have been announced and we had a look to how our local businesses have done. Congratulations to these companies, its a lot of hard work to be the best so well done on making us all proud.
We have not included the chain stores, we know they have a stores in Fourways but they are not unique to Fourways.
BEST THEATRE – THE TEATRO AT MONTECASINO
When it comes to memorable and hugely impressive productions at a world-class theatre, The Teatro at Montecasino (Best Theatre) is a firm favourite. Think The Nutcracker, Tap Dogs, Lion King, The Sound of Music, Chicago … we could go on and on about all our favourites. Go on, dress up and spoil yourself and your loved one to a magical night at the theatre.
BEST KITCHEN ESSENTIALS – ADAMS DISCOUNT CENTRE
What would time spent in the kitchen be if it weren’t for the amazing variety of fantastic kitchen essentials at Adams Discount Centre (Best Kitchen Essentials)? One, it would be hugely frustrating and, two, our cooking would probably never taste as good! Knives, kettles, coffee machines, blenders, baking tools … you name it, Adams has it.
PLACE TO WATCH THE BIG GAME – BOKTOWN
There are few moments as festive as when the Springboks take to the field in their green and gold. There’s a sense of pride and community that fills the air, celebrated by loud cheers and cold beers. And the best place to watch the game? Boktown (Place To Watch The Big Game) for sure. With plenty of space for everyone, it’s always hugely festive. Don’t miss out.
BEST CRÈCHE – BUTTERCUP PRE-SCHOOL
A beautiful, secure, nurturing environment that feels like home away from home … surely that’s all we could wish for our littlies at pre-school? Buttercup Pre-School (Best Crèche) is just the place according to our readers. With excellent educational facilities, truly caring and qualified teachers, a range of extramural activities, as well as a pick-up and drop-off shuttle service, you can rest assured that your little one is in good hands.
BEST PRIMARY SCHOOL – BRYANDALE PRIMARY
With a long-standing reputation for excellence, Bryandale Primary (Best Primary School) has always been a firm favourite with parents and children alike. With a focus on holistic education – a love of nature as well as the classroom – well-rounded children who are equipped for the 21st century graduate here. It has a friendly environment with excellent teachers, classroom facilities and gorgeous gardens.
BEST BEAUTY MECCA – LIFE DAY SPA
Every once in a while we need to treat ourselves to some relaxing ‘me time’ in the form of hot stone massages, reflexology, rejuvenating facials and foot massages at Life Day Spa (Best Beauty Mecca). We’ll be taking our bestie along too, thank you very much!
BEST BILTONG – SLOANE MEAT MARKET
Thinly sliced, wet and fatty, chilli-spiced or droëwors, if there’s one thing South Africa is famous for, it’s biltong! And we sure love it too. There’s nothing quite like a bag of freshly sliced biltong with a glass of ice-cold beer on the weekends. If it’s absolutely delicious biltong you’re on the lookout for, there’s only one place to go … Sloane Meat Market (Best Biltong).
BEST FOOD MARKET – THE FOURWAYS FARMERS MARKET
Beneath a canopy of pine trees with a cocktail in hand, a selection of delicious bites to eat and listening to live music, is where you’ll find us, and our readers, most weekends. The Fourways Farmers Market (Best Food Market) is always abuzz with families picnicking in the gorgeous gardens, watching their children run around while market vendors and chefs show off their fresh, artisanal products. Think locally made cheeses, cured meats, sweet treats, jams, freshly squeezed juices, preserves and more … well, we’ve just stocked our pantry for the next couple of weeks.
BEST SUSHI – FIREROOM
There are sashimi and handrolls, maki and California rolls and then there’s sushi that’s set on fire (yes, really!) – and we just cannot get enough. Think a crispy California roll with salmon, jalapeño, Kewpie mayo, cream cheese and yakitori sauce, set ablaze in front of your eyes! Not only is the food at Fireroom (Best Sushi) seriously moreish and the source of serious food envy, the entire experience is flaming fantastic!
BEST OUTDOOR DINING SPOT – BUITENGELUK
Sit outside beneath the magnificent trees in the gorgeous gardens (and take a deep breath), while enjoying a bite to eat from the oh-so-tempting Buitengeluk (Best Outdoor Dining Spot) menu. A great place for the entire family to get together and the littlies to run around.
BEST NEW RESTAURANT – ROXANNE’S RUM EATERY
Neon lights, on-trend decor, sassy quotes on the walls, leather, a tattoo room, perfect selfie spots set up just for you, and seriously devilish food … it’s easy to see why Roxanne’s Rum Eatery (Best New Restaurant) wins this category hands down. It’s sexy and edgy and comfortable and relaxed … it’s perfect for date nights and bachelorettes, big groups and birthdays. It’s everything you want. With menu options like Busty Bagels, Glam Burgers, Dude Food, Hot ‘n Steamy Puddings and a long list of tantalising cocktails, there’s something a little cheeky for everyone.
