Check Out These Must-Try Dining Spots For Any Occasion

FOOD  |  MAY 5, 2023


Eating out has always been a timeless occasion that most people take pleasure in doing. Even though the past two or three years have changed the way people dine and what they prefer, power cuts and loadshedding are driving people to go back to dining out again. You and your family may be considering getting into a routine of eating out every now and then, and need a refresher on which places have the heartiest and most wholesome meals for you and yours. In this article, we will take a look at a few spots found at The Glen Shopping Centre. 

A Taste For Life, Anyone? 

Are you or are your family meat lovers who enjoy some smoked ribs, buffalo wings, and chips? What about crispy onion rings? We know you can already taste them like we are, so hop on down to Spur in The Glen Shopping Centre and grab a table solo or with loved ones and share some great Spur flavour. With their rewards programme, promotions, and competitions, you will not only save a few rands at Spur, but you might walk away with a prize sometimes. 

Spur is great for families with a variety of food interests as they have meat, poultry and fish, as well as vegetarian options for those who prefer a more meatless plate. 

Take Time For Some Thai 

Polish up those chopsticks skills and rally the family for some Asian flavour at The Glen Shopping Centre’s Simply Asia. If you are looking for meals like noodles and fried rice, chow mein, curries, soups, and even sushi, you have come to the right place. The prices are affordable, and the portions are manageable. Plus, you can always order to go if you want to bring the Thai flavour home. So, next time you are at The Glen Shopping Centre, indulge in some flavour from Simply Asia. You won’t regret it. 

Dive Into The Ocean 

Seafood fanatics, we didn’t forget about you. The Glen Shopping Centre is also home to Ocean Basket, and we don’t have to tell you it is one of the most loved seafood restaurants in Johannesburg and the country at large, because you probably also have it high up your list of favourites. So, hop on down to Ocean Basket and grab today’s catch, or browse through a range of options from seafood to ‘Surf n Turf’ (that’s when you have meat and fish in the same plate), or go for that vegan/vegetarian aesthetic. The world is your oyster at Ocean Basket. 

Ocean Basket cares about sustainability and uses responsibly-sourced seafood while giving customers everyday value for money. We know you’ll love it here because dessert is also delicious, and the vibes are warm. 

Chicken Dust With A Twist 

When it comes to craving a flame-grilled chicken with spices and sauces like no other, it’s a no-brainer that you and yours would want Mzansi’s favourite chicken, Nando’s. And The Glen Shopping Centre’s franchise is no different, dedicated to serving bowls and plates of goodness to everyone – even the little ones get all the flavour with none of the burn. So bring your loved ones and explore the vast and growing menu that Nando’s has to offer. 

Got Space For Dessert? 

Take a walk on the milky lane, literally, with The Glen Shopping Centre’s Milky Lane. Fancy some ice cream, cone or cup, or want to dive into some waffles? Milky Lane has a range of combinations and flavours to transport you to the happiest place on earth – imaginary candy land, of course. Milky Lane also makes delicious ice cream cakes for when you have that special someone to celebrate. So, come visit Milky Lane, and let’s explore every avenue. 

A Mug(g & Bean) Of Warmth 

Wrap up the family or solo dinner experience with a cup of coffee or tea from Mugg & Bean. Nothing beats that last cup of chai before you head home to end the day with some Netflix or tucking the little ones in. Or maybe you just finished your shopping at The Glen and need something to munch on before you head home to create those hearty and wholesome meals your family loves. Pop in for some hot and cold beverages, as well as a menu with breakfast and lunch options that are simply amazing. There’s even dessert here, so come in and indulge your sweet tooth. 

Quality Time Is Exactly That, Quality 

Remember, the most important part about having a family date night is the time you will be spending with your loved ones as you catch up and remind one another how special you are. Take pleasure in these moments, be present and attentive, and don’t dip into people’s fries without asking. Trust us; we’ve tried. See you at The Glen Shopping Centre soon.
