The Pudding Shop...one of Johannesburg's gems!
It is located in Parktown North at number 43, 7th Avenue and if you were driving by and blinked, you may miss it...but best you don't.
This delightful eatery prides itself on the freshest and best quality ingredients coupled with the love and care of each dish which is carefully prepared by Chef Zeus and his team. The Pudding Shop does not just offer what its name says, it is a combination of Italian, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean with most of the dishes on offer of the vegetarian or vegan variety.
The establishment is set on the side of an existing popular Italian restaurant and has been cleverly put together making one feel as though one could be outside when in fact one isn't. The ivy growing on the inside of the walls brings a certain charm and European country feel to the room.
The Pudding Shop offers breakfast and lunch daily with the menus offering an ample appetising selection including tasting plates which are perfect if you can't make up your mind completely. If you are there for breakfast, an omelette is a must, the best in town!
The drinks list offers the basics, with the wine list more than sufficient with some great vineyards to choose from. For starters the crumbed olives in a hummus pesto sauce are something that you will never have tasted and the dish will have you wanting more. The main courses on offer are so diverse, I found it hard to choose, but settled for the lasagna which took me out into the country with its robust root vegetables and Zeus' secret red sauce...you have to try this! The fishcakes are also a must taste, as they melt in the mouth, served with the most delicious rustic mash.
Of course, the pudding is something to behold! One can choose from what is on offer on the night or day of your visit. The apple German cake won our hearts to end off our Full Moon Feast.
So, if you are looking for somewhere to have a breakfast with the girls, perhaps a lunch meeting in calming surroundings or a spectacular night out under the full moon with someone special...look no further than The Pudding Shop.
