The Gourmet Shrine

  70 Juta Street, Braamfontein ,   Braamfontein         18 Jan 2024
The super relaxed owner Chef Vusi describes this place as the Temple of Gourmet food. With a background in farming, catering events, food trucks, and trading at various markets in Joburg, Chef Vusi has got a few new tricks up his sleeve for Braamfontein. Taking the space previously occupied by Open Slice, The Gourmet Shrine (opened Nov 2022)  serves filling and flavourful gourmet burgers, with options for vegans, vegetarians, and pescetarians. Rest assured you are in the capable hands with this victor of the 2022's Kota Festival.

We tried the the bacon and guacamole combo – Soweto Boy, and recommend you ask for the Mad Veggie if you're not mad about meat. Burgers come with fried onions and well-seasoned potato chips.

The Gourmet Shrine also serve breakfast, and freshly squeezed juices for the early-ish birds in Braam.


The Gourmet Shrine is a short drive from the Park Station Gautrain station.
