Last week I was invited to Roast & Co to try out their new burger special which will be running every Tuesday:
Having already fallen in love with their delicious roast chicken offering on a previous visit (check out my full Roast & Co review over here), I was very keen to try out their crispy chicken burger as well.
Marinated in buttermilk for 24 hours and then crumbed in a tasty batter… this is what their burger looks like up close:
My top tip: If, like me, you prefer your chicken extra spicy, then I highly recommend that you add a good dollop of their “Your chick is on fire” sauce to your burger. For those who get a little nervous around spicy food, their “Smoke detected” hickory smoked mayo will add some extra creaminess.
One thing to note is that the special does not include sides, so you’ll have to order that separately. The burgers are quite sizable though, so I would recommend just ordering a side or two to share if you feel like something extra to nibble on. I personally really enjoy their roasted potatoes (R36), their charred corn (R48) and their pumpkin fritters (R38).
To join in on the burger goodness, bookings are recommended (although you can also take a chance with a walk-in). If the weather’s good, definitely book a spot in the courtyard & enjoy some al fresco dining. If it’s windy/chilly, their indoor seating is equally inviting.
ALSO – if you get there straight after work, or early evening, you can take advantage of their 2-for-1 happy hour special as an extra treat:
For reservations, you can contact them on:

And location-wise, you’ll find them here: 98 Shortmarket Street, Cape Town CBD
Roast & Co is open Mon – Sat, noon until midnight, BUT as mentioned above, the burger special is only available on Tuesdays (but it is available all day – not just for dinner). Enjoy!
