Ritual Cafe

South African in Johannesburg

Ritual Cafe is a small, simple, yet stylish restaurant serving traditional South African favourites (think curry and oxtail stew) with a modern twist. Owner Julia Kunstler is a ceramicist as well as a restaurateur, and all the dishes in the restaurant are hand-made. Although not a strictly vegetarian restaurant, Ritual serves a wide range of vegetarian and vegan dishes.

The restaurant is closed for an hour or two each day between lunch and dinner. Check Ritual Cafe's Facebook page for complete opening hours. Ritual does not have a liquor license but diners are welcome to bring their own.
