Great Eastern Food Bar opens up in Illovo
One of the best Asian restaurants in the city, the Great Eastern Food Bar has moved from Mellville and lucky for us they’re now in the Post Office Centre, Illovo. The restaurant has always been top-notch but now it’s delightfully accessible because it’s in the neighbourhood. Ranked among the top 100 restaurants in Joburg on Tripadvisor based on the Mellville restaurant, the Illovo restaurant is also small and intimate, without pretension and as always, all about the food.
The food is delicious with delicate subtle tastes contrasted with tangy, zesty ones. From sweet crispy chicken to kimchi ginger noodles and superb sashimi tacos with trout ceviche, pickled lemon and wasabi of such quality that you’d be hard pressed to match it elsewhere in the city.
