Restaurant Reviews

I thought I would compile a list of Banting friendly restaurants I visit and let you know what I order that is Banting Friendly – always helpful to know.


You know when you suddenly realise JUST HOW MUCH you eat out? I’m having that realisation right now….

Anyway, last night I went to the Hussar Grill in Steenberg (it’s halfway between my boyfriend and I). Neither of us eat read meat, but they make great fish and chicken options. I had the chicken with chocolate chilli sauce, ditched the mash and added the veg (butternut and spinach). Very yummy. And really warmed me up on a cold Wintery night!


Last night I went to Borrusos, which has always been a favourite with my friends. I used to love their pizzas, pre-banting days, and I was feeling a little sorry for myself at the thought of a salad on such a cold night, but they’ve added banting bases to their menus! It’s an extra R30 but well worth it I think. It’s got quite a specific flavour (flaxseeds I think?!) but it’s holdable and not soggy, thank goodness. Quite different from the Col’Cachio bases!

I always order half / half when I can, so last night I had Jamaican and No 1 Special with bacon instead of salami, total winner!


I went to the Toad at Josephine for a work lunch last week, and I had the GREATEST salad! I ordered the Cajun Chicken Salad with bacon, avocado, and camembert (and changed the camembert for Goats Cheese). It was so delicious and so many toppings, not just a bowl of leaves (my worst). High Five to the Toad!


I went to Col’Cacchio’s on Friday and they make banting pizza bases. To be honest, I’m not a huge fan as they’re too mushy for me. But they do such great salads (Avellino is my best)  there, so that’s a great option.


I’m rather addicted to the Beetroot Woolloomooloo and they’re happy to swap out the mash for sweet potato fries, which are delicious!
