At the foot of a hill, beneath the new centre of Johannesburg, is a place to gather over shared ideas, wood-fired meals, fine wine and craft beer.
What an exceptional afternoon we had at this gem of a spot in Parkmore. Wonderful manageress with a kind way, and a super attentive waitor. The music is soulful. Now, the food... Sublime rump with chimichurri and we shared a few other small sides. Each dish Is carefully thought through with respect to how it is prepared and also the accompaniments. A great spot to be, PS my husband is quite a chef himself and he too loved it
This restaurant has quickly become one of my favourite spots for a number of reasons:
1. It feels like you are hanging out at a friends house, unaware to the passing of time because you are just having so much fun in your friendship bubble - who doesn't like being in this zone
2. The beef fat fries taste like what I imagine joy would taste like if joy had a taste...if someone had never eaten a deep fried potato before, this is what I would feed them because they are the best deep fried potatoes I have ever had (and I have had many)
3. They are now doing Sunday brunches (10:30 - 14:30) with a bottomless mimosa option and bottomless no-mimosa option - I LOVE a delicious brunch on any day
4. The yankee stack flapjacks....I ordered them twice in one sitting (no the portions are not small, but the deliciousness got the better of me, I was sitting firmly in gluttony) are worthy of the most elaborate, grand and most enthusiastic slow clap ending with a spirited standing ovation
Parliament - I salute you!!!! Love your food, love your vibe and love, love, LOVE your food!
