Johannesburg’s Cube Tasting Kitchen offers a quite unconventional dining experience. The kitchen serves 30 guests at a time, so a reservation is essential. The lucky 30 are then presented with a pre-fixed, 10-course tasting menu, which is slowly revealed dish after dish over the course of no less than three hours. Such a peculiar format arises from the owners’ vision of dining as a community-building occasion, a spark to ignite conversation and community. Cube Tasting Kitchen’s menu is changed monthly and takes influences from the best-known international cuisines.

Tasha’s is a prominent chain of ten eateries located throughout South Africa established by skilled restaurateur Natasha Sideris, a household name in the Rainbow Nation’s cooking industry. All Tasha’s cafes offer a range of simple but fresh and delicious bites (salads, sandwiches, tramezzini, omelettes, quesadillas), which makes them a preferred choice for a satisfying brunch or lunch. One of the fundamental elements on which Tasha’s concept is based is that each store should have its own style and spirit. This explains why every café in the chain is uniquely decorated – the branch in Johannesburg’s Rosebank features a beige to brown palette, books hanging from the ceiling on a long, quaint wood table, and more generally a relaxing and delightful ambiance. Truly a little gem of a café in Johannesburg.
