Friday-night takeaways: Great spots to try in your city

Friday night means it’s time to kick off your shoes, pour a refreshing drink and order in your dinner. If you’re tired of the usual pizza or noodle bowls and you’re looking for some inspiration, we’ve got exactly what you need to mix up your takeaway order.

Coalition (Joburg)

Coalition cooks up hot Neapolitan-style pizza at various locations in Joburg. The slow-fermented dough is pillowy and a little chewy, while the premium toppings like burrata and coppa bring a real taste of Italy to each bite. They’ve come through lockdown stronger than ever, now offering a frozen range so that you can stock up at home.

Oishi (Joburg and Cape Town)

If you don’t feel like cooking but you’re in the mood for something light and sophisticated, Oishi is for you. The menu features classic and speciality sushi rolls, poké bowls (with or without rice) and a selection of Asian-style starters such as tempura prawns or spring rolls.

Order online on their website.

Po’Boys (Durban)

Also know as ‘poor boys’, these super saucy stacked sandwiches hail from Louisiana and are now available in Durban. If you love a gatsby or bunny chow then these fully loaded baguettes are just for you. We’re crushing on the Jozi Po’boy featuring steak, cheddar cheese, grilled peppers, speciality chilli-garlic polony, fries and in-house po’boy sauce all in a toasted baguette.

Find them on Instagram.

Sidewing (Cape Town)

One of Cape Town’s best-kept secrets is Sidewing. They serve some of the tastiest chicken wings, burgers, ribs and chips in flavour combinations that change up weekly. Their latest creation is the beef doughnut burger – a homemade brioche doughnut dipped in a honey-and-mustard glaze, two beef burger patties, cheddar cheese, pickled jalapeños, ranch dressing and crispy onions.
