Food I Love You

Described by owner, former advertising account manager and self-taught chef Mpho Phalane as “an occasional restaurant”, Food I Love You is a catering company and pop-up restaurant in Victoria Yards in east Joburg. As Phalane explains Food I Love You was born “after I finally answered the question to myself of what truly made my heart sing… hence the name Food I Love You”. 

Open every first Sunday of the month during Victoria Yards’ First Sundays event, the constantly-evolving menu is a blend of Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and African influences. Featuring seasonal produce from Victoria Yards’ urban farm, Phalane lays out a farm-style breakfast and harvest table lunch which she describes as being “all about an abundance of food, a feast of the eyes” with every ingredient being given centre stage and bold flavours aplenty. 

Phalane's catering career highlights since launching Food I Love You include catering for the PPC Imaginarium Awards 2018 where she created a quirky doughnut wall and her work for the Arts and Culture Trust Awards where her poppadom baskets filled with coconut lamb curry stole the show.
