SA’s restaurant industry has been hit particularly hard as the country continues to battle the persistent Covid-19 pandemic. Their doors remain closed for sit-in dining for now, but we’ve rounded up a few of our favourite eateries offering takeaway and deliveries during the third wave.

The Bespokery Bistro

Parkview’s The Bespokery is packing their delicious Mediterranean-inspired small plates that which cater to a host of restrictive diets. The call-and-collect offering features four menus comprising five or six small plates and include their scrumptious confit lamb shoulder, white balsamic pork belly and, for those with a plant-based inclination, black-bean quinoa koftas. As with their dine-in offering these menus are best when shared or, if you’re locked down alone, each should be enough for two hearty meals at least.
