Eat Out magazine is the definitive annual guide for where to eat well in South Africa, featuring top fine-dining destinations, neighbourhood gems and classic favourites. The 2018 magazine is the 20th edition of the guide and includes reviews of the Eat Out 500, which are the 500 best restaurants in the country as rated by Eat Out’s countrywide editorial panel of 48 critics, as well as details on the Top 10 as announced at the Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards on 19 November.
The collectors’ issue pays tribute to the last two decades of the local restaurant industry, its highlights, watershed moments and stars. Take a trip down memory lane as the magazine traces back the top trends of the past 20 years, like molten chocolate cakes, Cosmopolitan cocktails, deconstructed dishes, gourmet burgers and foraging. From markets becoming a foodie mainstay to incredible chefs rising locally and internationally, the landscape has changed dramatically from the days of surf-and-turf at the local steakhouse. Also get a look at Eat Out’s previous 19 covers, and find out which 23 restaurants have stood the test of time, appearing in the very first edition and once again in this, the 20th issue of the magazine.
“Eat Out is proud to have been part of South Africa’s eating out history,” says Anelde Greeff, editor-in-chief of Eat Out. “We have witnessed so many amazing restaurants, chefs and trends come and go over the past 20 years, and we hope that this issue pays tribute to that – and to the wonderful new wave of winners of the 2017 Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards.”
The 2018 issue of the magazine also introduces the new logo for Eat Out, the first of a number of exciting developments for the brand in the year ahead. Join in the 20th issue celebrations by following the hashtag #EatOut20.
