johannesburg - modern vibrant restaurant

I would second the Moyo Melrose Arch recommendation since you are in the Sandton region .
Check out the website:- http://www.moyo.co.za/restaurant-moyo...
Advisable to book, also look at the What's On tab

South African Pies

At the Rosebank Market on Sunday try the chicken pies from the vendor next to the cheese people in the corner. They are delicious gut-fillers (in the best sense), I think they come from a place called 'The Home of the Chicken Pie' that is on the R512 heading NW out of Johannesburg to Hartbeespoort (the road that also takes you to Lanseria Airport).

Restaurant recommendations in Johannesburg?

For Thai/Vietnamese try Cranks in Rosebank (a funky place) and also for Thai try Wangthai on Mandela Square in Sandton. I haven't been to either in a while but have not heard anything to suggest that they aren't still good. Hope you can try them.

Basic Omelet

Geez Torvum, feel better now? There are many lesser beings than you out there, I would say that Lisa is suggesting a generally accepted ideal to them - the article is after all entitled "Basic Omelette Recipe"...?!

Great to see the recommendation of Fournos' croissants, they are the best! Heaven to me is sitting at Fournos in Dunkeld on a Saturday morning and enjoying cofee and a croissant!
