Like any other best restaurants in Johannesburg, Coobs is one of the most-loved bistro’s in Gauteng Province and other parts of the country. For fans of wine and food, it provides a delicious seasonal menu and best wines.
The restaurant is one of only two in South Africa which can accurately trace the provenance of its food – meaning, Coobs knows exactly where their ingredients come from. Owner of Coobs, James Diack takes pride in ensuring that his menu highlights the part of the dish that comes off the farm. Dishes are fresh, simple and show off the quality of the ingredients.
Open for three years, Coobs is 85-90% self-sufficient, supplied by Brightside in the Magaliesberg, a farm which has been in the Diack family for years – and it’s where James grew up.
Two three-hectare veggie gardens supply the restaurant with herbs, vegetables and fruit – it even makes its own ricotta. The farm also supplies Coobs’ now legendary acorn-fed wild board, lamb, duck and the occasional pigeon or guinea fowl.
Coobs is rated by www.travelstart.co.za as one of 10 Johannesburg Restaurants You Must Visit In The City Of Gold. For more information, visit the website www.coobs.co.za, or follow them on Twitter @CoobsParkhurst.
