947 listeners help us uncover Joburg's Gems

We LOVE this city. We’re connected. We’ve got the music and we’ve got the personalities to show you exactly how to do Joburg right! If you love Joburg, 947 Loves You. We have been asking you to help us uncover Joburg's hidden gems. We want you to experience some amazing places that you might never have known existed! Here is a list of some of the places people have suggested:

Carlos' Chicken in Melle Street Braamfontein is a winner! A delicious lunch at an affordable price. They sell tasty chicken, prego's, chicken stew and the meals come with homemade bread rolls to die for. If you like peri-peri sauce then ask for extra hot and you won't be disappointed. Give it a try!!! If you are in the Edenvale/Bedfordview area there is a trailer on boeing road selling chicken and beef prego's as well from Carlos' Chicken.

Gilroy's Brewery is a beautiful little place off of M34 Shady Lane, Muldersdrift. This is a grate place to go on a Sunday for good food craft beer and some good old fun.

There is a Pakistani owned bakery in Actonville, opposite the Shoprite. They sell the BEST cape malay koeksisters, and cakes, not to mention their eggless biscuits that melt in your mouth. The lemon condense cake is the BEST on the east as well.

My hidden gem is based in Krugersdorp...ok ok...but it's still JOBURG right?! It's called the "Rabbit Hole Restaurant". Between feeling like you've woken up in Wonderland wondering where Alice is, and the mosaics...you'll LOVE the food! The entrance is mosaiced...the bar counter is mosaiced with bottle tops...the fish pond is mosaiced with the bottoms of glass bottles! And oh my word the clocks in the bathroom...!! Bent teaspoons on walls, balsamic vinegar beads for your foccacia...and oh my the pizza...gotta love the pizza! Last but not least...the rose flavoured milkshake complete with rose beads on top...dreamy!
