This weekend I attended an absolutely fantastic event called the Taste of Joburg. The event featured 17 of the top restaurants in Johannesburg as well as various other stands containing wine, fruit juices, ice-creams, pesto-sauces and much more.
There were no cash transaction so the currency of the day was the “Crown”. One crown represents R5. This made for interesting mathematical calculations from a journalist such as myself. I did spend quite a bit of money over the four hours I was present. Entrance cost R120 so just getting in wasn’t cheap.
No meal was more than 8 Crowns or less than 4 Crowns. When I say meal what I really mean is a taste-sized plate of food. None of the meals were a true restaurant size meal. Most were a single, smaller sized portion of food. When I say food what I mean is top quality cuisine from top chefs in Joburg and top restaurant. Many of the meals were really not worth the 8 Crowns they would cost so I skipped past those. I tried food from the Saxon, March, Roots, Yum and many others.
Overall everything about the event was classy, well-organised and fantastic to be a part of. It was not particularly well attended on Saturday but I think that was due to late advertising. I was impressed with the vast amounts of Marquees and the great state of the “Nice” toilets supplied by Berman Hire; nice toilets really do make an event of this kind a pleasure to attend.
Next years event is sure to be just as good and more than likely even better.
