Partner content: Let your taste buds travel with Mr D Food

Brought to you by Mr D Food

A country’s authentic cuisine is a window to its soul. When we taste meals and flavours from different places, we can learn something about their culture and history almost as though we’ve travelled there ourselves. Today South Africans have a deliciously diverse range of cuisines at our fingertips so we can travel through food without even leaving home.

Want to travel through cuisine? It’s easy to do it with Mr D Food. Here are five restaurants boasting global flavours around SA that can be delivered to your door.

Taste Italy

Pronto (Johannesburg)

This neighbourhood Italian spot is made for those with a powerful passion for pasta. It prides itself in producing over 70,000 pastas per year, with a selection of over 25 deliciously different pasta dishes. Return to a classic favourite like the penne arrabiata or switch things up with something like the creamy beef, spinach and pine-nut linguine. Whatever you decide on, this local favourite is sure to transport your taste buds with imported ingredients and traditional recipes.

Taste South Africa

Braai Block (Pretoria)

As exciting as it is to taste the flavours of the world, nothing tastes like home. If you’re dreaming about braai food with all seven colours included, place an order at Pretoria’s Braai Block to build a plate balancing your favourite meats, starches and sides. Think wors rolls and brisket, spinach and corn maize, pap and chakalaka and more. It’s Sunday lunch without any of the hassle. What’s more modern South Africa than a braai delivery?

Among favourites are the crispy duck, geang hew-wan (green curry) and ba me prik phao (chilli paste cashew noodles).
