Saturday market in Braamfontein, close to Jhb CBD. Gets very busy so arrive before lunch time. Many stalls and gourmet food options. Expect to eat, drink and meet people. Gets quite festive. The place has outstripped the original purpose embodied in its folksy name: now 4000 people in a day try to get a glimpse or taste of things. Queue for teriyaki sushi, fresh coconut cocktails, madly popular paella and pretty much anything. And there’s even an after-party: later in the afternoon, crowds surge across de Beer Street to The Bannister Hotel, and when that’s full, there’s always Great Dane. Open Saturday from 9am to 3pm and on first Thursday evenings. 5.4 kms away

The one that really started it all, this outdoor organic market is huge, with red-topped stalls and paved paths. It does many things well. The fresh, organically grown produce section is impressive, and you can find happily reared chickens, earthy and unusual flours, and whole dairy, like real clotted cream. There are artisanal pastas and breads, and ready-to-eat dishes made from these fine ingredients. The central area provides sit-down light meals, healthy snacks and bakes all day long, as well as coffees, juices and teas. (Be sure to try the famous lemon meringue pie.) There’s generally some Irish lilting, traditional South African jazz, or a haunting harp to listen to.

This large, rewarding outdoors market has a garden setting with over a hundred stalls, many of them selling food. People settle down at tables or bales of hay for breakfast, teas and lunches. The choices are laid out on either sides of your passage through the gardens: Dutch, German, Belgian, America, Mexican and South African. The rest of the market has an excellent selection of glistening vegetables and fruit, meat from the Karoo and Free State, Cape cheeses, free-range chickens and eggs, fudge and Propolis honey. Try some of the outstanding Mauritian, spiced seafood and poultry pâtés conveniently situated near the breads. Children will be happy here too, hurtling around in the lavender..

Claiming a coveted spot on the corner of Jan Smuts and Bolton Roads, this new restaurant has very quickly become the go-to place for a night out with friends. Chef Andrew Green and his team serve a range of creative and light meals (think slow-roasted beef short rib with pickled egg yolk, and tonka bean panna cotta) and a comprehensive range of drinks (cocktails, craft beers, whiskeys and a fair number of wines by the glass). The location also offers the perfect vantage point from which to view the sunset and Joburg winding down as the traffic dissipates. Go to the new bar next door for great cocktail! so new it is yet to be named as of Jan 2017!

Crazy avant garde restaurant with quirky decor and clientele. The menu is cryptic-looking but deceptively simple: essentially serving Vietnamese-ish chicken with fresh, irreverent sides. The best thing to order is the full fried chicken box for two or four people, which comes with all the sides. The legs and wings arrive first, deep-fried and sticky with a sweet Asian sauce. Next the breasts, crispy and coated, arrive with bao buns, sauces and sides. Last, it's the thighs, with seaweed. The effect is an impious feast of red, yellow and pink plastic plates packed with fresh, wholesome, fun food. If the place is full, take a seat on the Tuk-tuk and order cocktails!

The place to be seen - This iconic French patisserie has been buzzing since it launched in Melrose Arch in early 2017. Best for pastries and baked good usually eaten for breakfast. Try the eclairs, tartlets or croissants - all exceptional. Lunch menu also a good amalgamation of french bistro-style cuisine so worth a try although I recommend a visit for brunch. Don't forget the champagne!

This is not for a service in America - There was not one listed for Joburg yet. Doctors on call Joburg are a group of professional doctors in that do house calls and bring all medication required with them. You can page them on 011-7882222. This service can be pricey (About R2000 after hours including all medication) but is certainly more convenient than spending hours at a clinic. They are available 24hrs.

Ok so this is not for the Pennsylvania Expressive Movement Site! (I just could not find the Joburg one registered.) Expressive movement is a guided movement and dance meditation requiring no previous experience fashioned after the 5 Rhythms dynamic movement practice. Sessions are 90 minutes every Thursday from 18H30 - 20H00 at the Rosebank Bowling Club. Cost is R100. I go every week when I'm in town so let me know if you want to join and catch a ride with me. You will meet many friendly Jozi locals getting rid of their stress on the dance floor. Ask me if you have any questions. Sian Palmer facilitates every Thursday with themed sessions and amazing music.
