Dunkeld West Shopping Centre is certainly not Joburg’s most glamorous location but it is home to quite a few Jhb food institutions: Fournos Bakery, Dunkeld Fruit & Flowers and The Fisherman’s Deli. And for the last few years DW eleven-13 can be added to that list. It was with a stroke of luck that we managed to get one of the last tables before they closed for the annual holidays and I am so happy we did as it never disappoints.

We opted for the 6 course degustation menu and each of the dishes delighted and tantalised. The service was superb, the staff knowledgeable and all these elements added together made for a very special lunch.

Stand out dish: The butter roasted langoustine, confit quail leg and smoked quail breast served with a plate-lickingly-good tarragon veloute.
