Chef An­gelo Scirocco is a Liam Tom­lin dis­ci­ple and he’s in­tro­duc­ing Joburg to the small-plate, shared-ta­ble mode of din­ing. His restau­rant, Ur­banologi, in Mad Gi­ant Brew­ery is one of the most ex­cit­ing new ad­di­tions to the city’s din­ing land­scape. It’s not far from Com­mis­sioner Street, which is his­tor­i­cally Chi­na­town, so there’s syn­chronic­ity in An­gelo’s Asian avant­garde ap­proach. Do try a pint of The Guzzler pil­sner (R34) with the deep-fried pota­toes with seaweed emul­sion (R35) – though the menu is worth ex­plor­ing far beyond that first item, even An­gelo con­sid­ers this may­on­naise the best he’s ever made. When the weather’s good, claim a seat in the beer gar­den, which boasts a char­coal grill turn­ing out seared beef pret­zels with mus­tard and shred­ded cab­bage pick­led in aged beer vine­gar. 1 Fox Street, Fer­reiras­dorp. 011-492-1399, ur­banologi.co.za
