Where To Dine: 5 New Kids On The Block

Rockets in Bryanston

The guys behind Rockets in Rivonia and Parkhurst have expanded their brand to bring you Rockets in Bryanston. This vibey spot, located in Hobart Shopping Centre will no doubt offer the perfect setting for after-work drinks for those living in the neighbourhood, since Rivonia has closed. Famous for their cocktails and delicious pizzas, Rockets also do an amazing Thai curry and chicken rösti served with sour cream, sweet chilli sauce and a side salad. www.rocketslife.tv

Patachou Patisserie 

We couldn’t get enough of Patachou Patisserie when they first opened their doors in Rivonia Village Shopping Centre, and luckily for us, we now get to visit two branches as they’ve opened another patisserie in Parktown North. Open daily for breakfast, brunch and lunch, Patachou offers Parisian style pastries and stuffed croissants for breakfast and quiches, sandwiches and salads for lunch. For dessert, you can choose from a huge selection of freshly baked cakes and sweet tarts. Follow Patachou Patisserie on Facebook
