A street food vendor whose menu is inspired by South Africa’s “unofficial” capital city Johannesburg has launched its second store in London.

The Joburger, which is named after the well-known abbreviation ‘Joburg’ as it’s known by Johannesburg’s locals, has opened in the yard market area of Tooting Market.

Its fully Halal menu sells a staple diet amongst Joburg’s locals of toasted sandwiches, burgers, pies and subs, all of which are “woven into the very fabric of the community”.

Owner Shoobs told the Tooting Newsie: “I really miss the food from back home in Johannesburg, so I brought it to London. I opened a shop in Woolwich six months ago, which has a regular stream if customers – including lots of South Africans of course – so I thought I’d open a second branch in the culinary wonderland of Tooting.”

With a site also in Woolwich Market, The Joburger prepares fresh food daily and says: “We source all our meat from specially curated butchers and ensure all our meat, our ingredients and our preparation methods are completely halal.”

21-23 Tooting High St, London SW17 0SN.
