The Very Best Black Friday Food Deals

No camping overnight or stampedes involved.

The words ‘Black Friday’ usually conjure up images of people camping out for half price iPhones, stampedes in the name of flat screen TVs and the Takealot site crashing, but this day isn’t just about technology. Some restaurants are hopping on the price-slashing band wagon too, and we’re so here for a deal that doesn’t require waking up before 6am or being shoved aside by fellow shoppers. Here is our selection of the best Black Friday food deals:

Hudson’s: The Burger Joint

A round of tequila shots always takes your energy and gees levels from 0 to 100 immediately. Hudson’s is helping you to fast-track that post-work Friday feeling by making their tequila shots half price for Black Friday. Plus if you head there between 4:30pm and 6:30pm you’ll hit their happy hour, where you’ll pay half the price for wines, beers and cocktails also. Stick to the Black Friday theme and grab one of their Instagram-famous black burger buns, which are, you guessed it, black (but in a tasty way).

Roast & Co.

What drink pairs best with one of Roast & Co.’s insanely delicious, whole roasted, free-range rotisserie chickens? Any drink that’s free TBH. Pop in between 4pm and 6pm for their Buy 1 Get 1 Free drinks special. The special applies to anything, from cocktails to wine or beer.

If you dream of a lavish lifestyle but your bank account won’t let you flourish, The Alba Restaurant is coming through for you this Black Friday. They offer a unique fine dining boat experience, cruising through the V&A harbour with views of Table Mountain. Book any cruise (including a dinner, a bubbly brunch and a high tea cruise) on Black Friday and you’ll save 50% (that’s at least R250).

MAReSOL it famed for their authentic Portuguese recipes with a hint of Mozambican flavour to them. This Friday they are slashing the price of their Whole Piri Piri Chicken to R49 (usually R149), which includes two sides. The special doesn’t apply to takeaways, which is just as well because the restaurant itself boasts beautiful views of the mountain and harbour to gaze at while you feast.

If you haven’t been to Ginz on Dynasty, which launched earlier this year, yet you’ve been missing out on excellent jazz nights, salsa dance classes and traditional local dishes done right. For Black Friday they’re cutting all cocktails by 35%. The special is actually on for the whole of November, so you don’t even have to wait for next Friday to start drinking.

Faithful to Nature is your one-stop shop for everything organic and good for you. The online store will be having cuts of up to 50% in celebration of Black Friday, and the special lasts for five days. Even better for earth lovers, they will be donating a portion of their Black Friday turnover to the Endangered Wildlife Trust. Looks like it’s time to stock up on coconut oil, vegan ice cream, kombucha, honey and all those other deliciously healthy things you can’t usually bring yourself to splurge on.


In the mood for steak and red wine? HQ is making eating a whole kilo of sirloin super do-able this Black Friday. It’s just R495 for a Tomahawk sirloin, bottomless (!) fries, two glasses of Cavalli’s Black Beauty Shiraz and two salads too.
