Yeoville Dinner Club

You couldn’t wish for a better tour guide to the tastes of the African melting pot that is the Johannesburg city suburb of Yeoville than Sanza Sandile. A former radio journalist he is something of a local legend as much for his stories, warmth, wit and unique insights as for his cooking. Even global food celebrity Anthony Bourdain tracked him down for his local knowledge and cooking expertise.

At his Yeoville dinner club at a rooftop location along the suburb’s bustling main thoroughfare, Rockey Street, he serves up a ‘Pan Afrikan Plate’ long table dinner with ingredients that have been sourced from the neighbourhood Pan-African food market and kitchens along the street.

From Mozambican-style fried fish to Nigerian-inspired Jollof rice and Middle-Eastern falafel and dips the table is a feast for the eyes and the stomach. You’ll share it with a cosmopolitan crowd of locals and visitors and if you are in luck the Japanese DJ might be spinning the decks at the reggae club next door, making for an even more unforgettable night.

The dinner costs R400 per person. Prior booking is essential. See the Yeoville Dinner Club facebook page for more details. For more on the Yeoville Dinner Club check out this blog post by Joburg blogger 2Summers.
