If you have never been to Urbanologi at 1 Fox Precinct, then I suggest you quickly change that. Not only is it one of the best restaurants in Joburg, serving food that is as tasty as it is nice to look at, but now it’s also one that concentrates all its efforts into where it sources it’s ingredients from, embracing local produce and highlighting it in every dish made.
Urbanologi‘s new Project 150 sees to it that all their core ingredients, except spices, are sourced within just 150km of the city restaurant. They have undertaken this concept to promote farmers and breeders producing exceptional products right on our doorstep. How cool is that?
This idea taps in so nicely with the ever-increasing wave of conscious living, which makes me really happy. Another thing I love is that because they make dishes based on what is fresh and available, items on the menu can change weekly or even on the day. So every time you go there will be something new and exciting to try.
I had lunch at Urbanologi a couple of weeks ago, I went with my friend Chloe and had the best afternoon camped out in the middle of the Mad Giant Brewery (where it’s located) surrounded by food, good local beer and chats about all the awesome things in life, like our kids hehe!
Urbanologi is open throughout the week for lunch and dinner, but on Thursdays, Fridays and over the weekends it’s pretty vibey if you’re looking for an interesting change of scenery while you feed your face with delicious Asian inspired tapas and locally brewed beer!
