Maybe you’re new to working in Randburg; you’re still getting your bearings and you only know how to get to and from work – which is a long commute. You’re still looking for affordable one room apartments in Randburg that are close to work, the drive is killing you, and all you want is some winter comfort takeaways that aren’t the usual McDonalds, KFC, or Nando’s default…

Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered on all fronts (the nano apartments and the food!).

Here’s a round-up of our top 5, little-known Randburg takeaway spots: they’re no-frills, fast, and the locals swear by them.

  1. My Lunch, Ferndale
  2. The best slap chips in Randburg, by far. This tiny takeaway is cheap as chips, too. They offer steak and eggs, toasted bacon and egg, and of course, amazing slap chips. Plus their takeaway coffee is pretty damn good.

    Find them: 186 Bram Fischer Drive, Ferndale.

  3. Akhalwaya’s, Cresta
  4. Craving Indian and anything in-between? Akhalwaya’s will sort you out. Along with bunnies and biriyanis, they also have Russian and steak rolls. Strictly halaal. Strictly awesome.

    Find them: Shop L05, Cresta Shopping Centre.

  5. Fish Hook, Darrenwood
  6. Seriously good fish and chips that not a lot of people know about. Traditional, English-style (mushy peas and Yorkshire pudding are even on the menu).

    Find them: Woodley Centre, 354 Republic Road, Darrenwood.

  7. Fat Cake City, Olivedale
  8. Part of a chain but you can’t go wrong with an as-you-expect-it fat cake, especially from the Olivedale branch. Friendly and fast – and quickly deals with your carb-craving.

    Find them: Shop 9, All Saints Centre, Windsor Way, Olivedale

  9. Mozambik, Randpark Ridge
  10. A unique chain that serves up traditional Portuguese food with a Mozambican twist. Pregos, ribs, prawns, combos… you get the picture. 

    Find them: Shop 1, Trinity Village (between Knoppiesdoring and Eastwood Avenue), Randpark Ridge
