Five Great Meal Deals


I don’t know about you, but I tend to get very lazy about cooking. I know it’s not something to be proud of, but every now and then you just get a craving for something different… here are some deals that will keep your palates entertained while not breaking the bank (especially if you decide to make it a regular occurrence).

Banana Jam Café. Mondays: 2-for-1 on all pizzas and burgers. They have a wide range to choose from, as well as some (reasonably priced) cocktails and beers! The burgers come with a side of fries and onion rings. (Kenilworth, 021 674 0186)

Greens. Wednesday: R20 gets you a chargrilled beef or chicken burger, served with chips; a 20cm classic pizza (no swopping of toppings); or the pasta of the day, served with a choice of penne or linguine pasta. (Gardens, 021 422 4415)

Radish Restaurant. Monday: 30% off all gourmet burgers. Tuesday: Sirloin and wine for only R90. Wednesday: 30% off all steaks. Thursday: Free dessert with any main. Friday: 30% off all starters. A week full of specials… what more could you ask for? (Stellenbosch, 021 865 2456)

Ferrymans. Sunday: pork roast for R55. A delicious way to end off a busy week! They also have a lunch time buffet available daily from 12:00 until 15:00, as well as a ‘Burger and Castle Draught’ lunch time deal for only R75. (V&A Waterfront, 021 419 7748)

Pollsmoor Restaurant Idlanathi. For something completely different, why not make your way down to the Pollsmoor Prison to have a meal made by Pollsmoor cooks and chefs. They’re open from Monday to Sunday 07:45 until 14:00, serving breakfast (R16 – R27), sandwiches (R6 – R19) and mains (R20 – R60). No tipping allowed. (Tokai, 021 700 1270)
