This is a real tourist haven, where you eat traditional meals in the Dube area of Soweto. It used to be an illegal shebeen 15 years ago in what was a four-roomed house. Only in the 1990s was it allowed to begin trading legally and it grew into the trendy and very well-known restaurant that it is today – celebs and visitors to the city hang out here.
Expect to eat traditional local food like umngqusho (stamped corn and bean stew, a traditional Xhosa dish), morogo and chakalaka, all served buffet-style.
