Exploring Downtown Jozi – The Neighbourgoods Market + Outfit Post

August 21, 2014

I’ve really missed Jozi! I forgot how much culture and vibe this beautiful city has. I guess it takes moving to another city for ten years to realise what you really have “back home”!

A little while ago, we visited the Neighbourgoods Market in downtown Johanneburg. If you haven’t been or heard of it before, it’s a saturday-only market in the heart of Braamfontein.

The vibe there is really cool, a little hipster and a really great place to hang out, have a drink or feed yer’ face with delicious treats.

You absolutely HAVE to try the Paella.

It’s beyond anything you’ve ever tasted – and you can witness the whole cooking process in giant (and I mean giant, look how small the people look in comparison) paella pans.

You might want to grab a quick treat like maybe a Miya’s Sushi Cupcake beforehand, as the Paella que is seriously long. The longer you wait, the hungrier you get!

The lower level is where you “pick” your food. Upstairs, on the rooftop, there is an open air spaced area for you to munch it down, or have a drink in the bar.

The drinks selection is quite interesting, whether you feel like a Melon Mojito served in Consol jars or, warm red wine spiced with different flavours. This drink has a name, but I’ve totally forgotten it?

On your way out, make sure you stop by the Poffertjies stand and grab yourself a full, or half plate of these yummy treats. They taste like mini pancakes (only better) and smothered in syrup and icing sugar. YUM!

Since the surroundings were so cool, I thought this would be a great setting to take some outfit pics for the Old Khaki Blog, Unrestricted Living, wearing my “August Must-Have”, the Eve Pullover.

Head on over to the Unrestricted Living blog to check it out – with a little Q&A section.

What I wore: Striped Knit – Old Khaki, Blue Eve Pullover Knit – Old Khaki, Jeans – Lucky Brand (Lolita Skinny), Swedges – Top Shop, Bag – TUMI (Sinclair Stella Double Zip Carry all in “Harvest”).

Hope you’ve enjoyed this little outfit slash exploring post, and if you know the name of that warmed red wine drink, please comment and let me know what it’s called.
