GP Finds Jozi - 17 January
GP Finds Jozi
Every week, the Ground Patrol team will make sure that on Friday, you know how to spend your weekends. We'll list the five coolest things you can do too have an awesome weekend within a decent budget of R500!
Everyone's back at work and, like us, we're sure you're still looking for ways to stay relaxed as the workload begins to pile up. Lunch time is a great way to get out and enjoy a bit of Joburg's summer energy so we've put together a list of the Top 5 places to head out for a 'work' lunch. Higher Ground is situated on the Saint Stithians grounds and offers customers the most incredible views of the city as well as a menu second to none. We enjoyed the bacon and avo rump steak and a plate of delicious prawns and we can honestly say that it's one of the best restaurants we've been to in Johannesburg. The service was impeccable and our waiter, Washington, genuinely made sure that anything we wanted, we got (he even took tons of pictures for us) and the prices left us smiling. Check out their menu and more information here. We highly recommend the Higher Ground restaurant and when you head over, make sure you tell Mark, the owner, that the Ground Patrol team sent you.
This is one of the best spots to enjoy a relaxed lunch hour with its incredible Ostrich bobotie spring rolls and one of Marcelle's favourites, pear and pecan nut tart. Lucky Bean is only open for lunch from Tuesday to Sunday and if you get off work early on a Friday, head down to Melville for an afternoon drink and some great music. Find out more here.

Smoke House and Grill
The Smoke House and Grill is an American style BBQ restaurant set right in the heart of the hustle and bustle of the city on Juta Street in Braamfontein. What we love about this restaurant is the variety of scrumptious meals to choose from on the menu, from sweet and sticky delicious pork ribs, to mouth-watering gourmet burgers which Karabo reckons are the best in town at the moment! This new trendy spot has a great atmosphere and we absolutely loved the excellent service. Click here for the menu.
