I accidentally discovered this African restaurant, Mama Tembo’s, in Rivonia, Johannesburg. The restaurant is in Rivonia Junction center (across from McDonalds) next to Rivonia Rd.
The menu has quite a few interesting items on – Winnie’s veggie platter, Mandela’s meat platter… and many more new items. When you order, you get a "bread basket" with a difference. The basket is a tin plate, with deep fried dough (almost like vetkoek, but smaller and crispi.jpger) and a tomato and onion salsa like dip.
Iconic African brands adorn the chairs, tables and walls – Marmite,Glenryck Pilchards, Huletts sugar, Lion matches… The decor is colorful and bright, but not overdone. If you are in the vicinity, at least go and have a look at th bar with its unique bar chairs.
On Tuesdays & Thursdays Ant has Salsa classes for beginners @ R40 per person (starting from 19:30) behind glass doors in a small hall.
