Kosher Spots In Johannesburg

Tasty Kosher Meal

Tasty Kosher Meal

Kosher foods and beverages are those that adhere to certain conditions according to Jewish law. There are a number of specific requirements involved in the preparation of meat, dairy, poultry, fish, and so on. Because our modern foodstuffs are often so processed, the kosher nature of what we consume has been negotiated, to some extent. So, it is always great to know that there are still some eateries that are defined as being kosher and suitable for strict Jewish diners.

Here are three kosher restaurants that are situated in the country’s commercial and economic hub of Johannesburg:


Metzuyan offers a range of dishes, flavours and influences, while still maintaining its status as a kosher restaurant. In addition to an A la carte menu, there is a Japanese sushi and teppanyaki bar, where only the freshest seafood and Japanese delights are on offer. The deli caters to most preferences and allows clients to take some of the Metzuyan passion home. Kosher wines and a number of whiskies also promise something special. This restaurant is geared for events and occasions, with function venues, audio-visual equipment and a sound system.

Homemade Rugelach

Homemade Rugelach


Franjelicas is a coffee shop, deli and catering company that boasts the title of being the first kosher coffee shop in the city. It is a completely milchik restaurant (which means that all of the rules regarding the handling of dairy and meat are adhered to). Despite having grown so much over the years, Franjelicas maintains its home-cooked-meal appeal and the love that infuses all of their dishes and dealings. Delicious treats range from healthy smoothies and Low GI muffins to more decadent cakes, pastries and tarts.

Mooz Brothers

Mooz Brothers is a milchik restaurant and bakery as well as a well-known dairy supplier. They sell an array of dairy products as well as healthy wraps, sushi, pastas and pizzas. There are also a number of delectable desserts that are sure to tempt the taste buds of young and old alike. Mooz Brothers is open from Sunday to Friday, and closed on Saturday.
