Che Argentine Grill-Maboneng District
When everyone thought they have discovered everything in Maboneng District, here comes a place that offers something new. Che Argentine Grill owned by two fellas from South America have brought some Argentinian flair and flavour right in our door steps. It’s got that rustic industrialist touch with a large amount of natural light coming from the big windows. This place is also loved for adding some South African touches to it, such as the open grill area and locally brewed craft beers. They host Tango classes and are part of First Thursdays Joburg. This is definitely a vibrant hangout spot.
