On Saturday we were at the Neighbourhoods market, all set and ready to get lunch, when our friend Jack suggested we go to a vegetarian restaurant in Mayfair called Shayona. The food is prepared according to the mantra that you get out what you put in, and is apparently made without any stimulants like garlic. I didn’t think food without garlic could be this delicious! Mandy and I shared a kind-of mixed platter (deluxe lunch)that comes with three curries, rice, roti and pudding.Jack also suggested we try these little coconut, coriander and chili balls which were out of this world. The best thing – other than the taste – is the price; lunch for 6 of us came to less than R400. If you’re looking for a great vegetarian restaurant in Johannesburg visit Shayona in Church Street Mayfair. (This may go without saying but there is no alcohol served so don’t get a surprise)
