Chapter 4: Steak

Butcher Shop and Grill

The busy 600-seater meat emporium has been serving great steaks to businesspeople, local celebrities, families and foreign visitors for 20 years.

Why go?

This old-fashioned butcher has traditions that run deep, with specialist blockmen who cut and prepare your meat as you like it.

The local Grill

For 16 years, the owner Steve Marescha—a beef obsessive—has been perfecting the art of the elevated steakhouse experience.

Why go?

Beef—both grain-fed and grass-fed—is sourced from local farmers and as far afield as Brazil. It is aged (wet or dry) on the premises and cooked to your heart’s desire.

Wombles Steakhouse

This is a white table-clothed, polished silver and elegant glass affair with an African safari theme running throughout.

Why go?

Wombles has been a long-time feature on the Johannesburg dining skyline. And has rightfully earned every award and accolade along the way.
