What constitutes as a good deal is tricky, especially when it comes to food and eating out. Commonly people get confused between a deal, and something being cheap. Cheapness does not guarantee quality, which means it isn’t a deal. Instead, a deal implies you are getting something of good quality for less money than it’s worth. While you would never use products on your furniture which you haven’t researched, you should never take a deal that you haven’t researched, either. Thankfully, we have done that research for you. We’ve tested out the prices and the food quality, and compiled a list of the top 3 food deals in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Salsa Mexican Grill, Parkhurst

Everyone gets a check list on arrival at Salsa, which they put their names on the top of and start picking and choosing what they want. Style, fillers, sauces – everything you can imagine is listed and all you need to do is tick your order. It’s fun and it’s practical, as it means you can make your meal as cheap or expensive as you like based on the individual elements you choose. There’s nothing you pay for which you didn’t specifically choose to eat!
