BEST FOR Deep-fried in­dul­gence. FOOD Sumting Fresh sells gourmet street food at Joburg’s most pop­u­lar week­end mar­kets, but now you don’t have to wait all week to tuck in. On week­ends en­joy an Asian-Amer­i­can brunch of waf­fles, chicken, dim sum, bis­cuits and gravy, and chur­ros. The rest of the week the fo­cus is on fried foods. ‘Wing­ing it’ – a bas­ket of four deep-fried buttermilk wings drip­ping in sriracha mayo, with parme­san-caked corn on the cob and skinny fries, is de­li­cious. There are two beef burg­ers on the menu and the sides are very tempt­ing – think deep-fried mac-and-cheese balls and skinny fries topped with parme­san and Napo­le­tana sauce. Don’t leave with­out try­ing a Sumting Fresh bao, served in pairs. DRINKS Happy hour is from 4pm to 7pm. SER­VICE Restau­rant space is tight and ta­bles are few so there’s lit­tle room for your wait­ron’s at­ten­tion to wan­der. AM­BI­ENCE Re­laxed and in­for­mal. (KK)
