Top 6 Contemporary food in Soweto, Johannesburg, Gauteng

January 12, 2020 Moriah Teneyck

Find out what Contemporary restaurants to try in Soweto. An acronym for South Western Townships, Soweto was dubbed as such in 1963. The area began in the late 19th century as a temporary neighborhood for gold mine workers, then later became a black Johannesburg ghetto with forced apartheid settlement. In 1976, Soweto garnered international headlines with its deadly uprising against Afrikaans-only language education. The Mandela Family Museum and the recently restored Credo Mutwa Village (with its Zulu and Sotho homesteads) are two can't-miss sights.

Tasty breakfast very well prepared, excellent service, good coffee (will ask for extra large cup next time). Definitely worth a visit. Highly recommended- but be sure to get there early. It is a smallish venue, and popular. Creamy mushrooms - to die for!

Salvation Cafe never disappoints - food and service always great. We waited minutes for a table at this very busy restaurant and were seated the trees . The restaurant is vibrant, busy, and extremely popular.The calamari was declared to be the best ever as were the burgers and my chicken Caesar salad was delicious. Great ingredients and great service. Fantastic lunch spot in jhb.

The Wine Bar is an awesome place to go and appreciate great South African wines - one would not expect to find such a gem so far away from the Winelands of the Cape Province! As a group we thoroughly enjoyed a feast of a meal with traditional foods or simple grills. Great to see many locals savouring their fine wines and socialising! So if wine is your thing and you feel like meeting really cool people then venture up Vilakazi Street to The Wine Bar you will not be disappointed ... we loved it!

Reviewed By Laurence A

I've visited Thrive on several occasions before. The music is always blaring. I can live with that because I always sit outside. My latest visit was on a Tuesday morning. It wasn't busy - maybe 6 customers in total. We ordered a quiche and after 10 minutes were told that it wasn't available. After another 10 minutes we were told that the chicken for the chicken baguette was still frozen so it would take another 10 minutes. After another 10 minutes we were told that they didn't have eggs for the Greek salad but they would put Feta on the salad instead. (The salad is listed as already having Feta).They then brought the wrong order to the table. When the food did arrive the baguettes were so hard they couldn't be eaten. I'm too embarrassed to take people there ever again. Hi Laurence, we will investigate what happened immediately and try to deal with any underlying issues that we find. Sorry for your bad experience. Our mission is to provide the best dishes and service on the "street" and we will take all necessary action to rectify. RegardsRoss (Thrive Director)
