The East Rand in Johannesburg has always been a little dry on the halaal front. Most of the interesting halaal finds are concentrated in South around Lenasia or in the Sandton / Rosebank vicinity. There seems to be a surge in the demand for halaal in the East though and in spite of lockdown and all it’s restrictions several new halaal spots have and are making an appearance. Here’s what you can look forward to:
The existing Rocomamas in Rynfield Square is under new management and is now fully halaal and Sanha Certified.
Pretoria based dessertery, Le Kreamery, is opening a store at Lakefield Junction, a new development in Benoni. The store promises next level decor in true Le Kreamery style along with their decadent menu.
A Portuguese sit-down restaurant serving a wide menu of chicken, meat and fish dishes. They are Muslim owned and used to be in Fordsburg, but have closed that store and have now opened at Lakefield Junction.
