Mangrove in Braamfontein is our go-to for great and budget-friendly social and cultural experiences in Joburg.
This restaurant in Johannesburg host a slew of exciting monthly events at the restaurant which we’ll keep you updated on. Taking place every weekend is the Mangrove Sunday Bike Ride, a weekly social cycling tour taking keen riders through various sites in Jozi.
Whether you’d just like to get some low-impact exercising, see the city in a new light, or just to socialise with some locals, the Sunday ride is a must-try activity in Braamfontein.
The cycling session wraps up at the restaurant with a brunch experience to refuel after your ride. You’ll find quite a few breakfast faves on the menu, from classic o to fresh bakes and the tried and trusted Eggs Benny.
Our recommendation is the Shaka Shakshuka, which the eatery’s unique twist on Spanish Eggs – baked eggs on a tomato relish with wilted mfino (pumpkin leaves), fresh salsa, and flatbread.
