If you think that people who eat organic, unprocessed, gluten-free and slow-cooked food are missing out on some big food secret offered by fast food joints, then you've never eaten at Gingko. Whether you're a fast food junkie or not, Groupon is giving you the chance to try organic food on for size by enjoying lip-smacking clean food for R225 at Gingko.
Whether you choose to use this Groupon on Gingko’s delicious a la carte menu or flavour filled buffet, you won’t be disappointed. The chef sources only the freshest and most organic ingredients to make their delicious meals, so you can be sure you’re wrapping your lips around the best quality produce from around South Africa. Wheat-free diners will also be bowled over by the selection of gluten-free offerings. While these sorts of allergies are becoming increasingly common there's only a handful of places that cater for them in Johannesburg. At least none that serve food as tasty as Gingko where you won't even realise that your roll contains no wheat or your cake is sugar-free.
Described as “a hidden gem” by some of their customers, Gingko serves up meticulously designed dishes that incorporate Thai, Indian and Mediterranean flavours. Diners can enjoy the delicate tastes of nut loaf and brinjal, cous cous and a wide selection of Mediterranean salads for the buffet while the a la carte menu is filled with mouth-watering flavours like seared beef salad, salmon, Prego rolls, honey and mustard chicken sandwiches and to-die-for quiches. Why not delight your taste buds with a Papaya Pleasure or Berry Blaze smoothie with your lunch? Alternatively, choose from the wide array of teas on offer and sip on a soulful cup of vanilla bean or tropical green tea.
*Gingko also has the added attraction of live music on Sunday 27 March with the gypsy jazz band Hot Club d’Afriques playing. Groupon holders can enjoy the musical delights for a discounted R100 per person while enjoying the fruits of their Groupon voucher, which is mezze or tapas on Sundays (however they can enjoy the buffet or a la carte menu before 3:30pm.) Remember that seating for Sunday “Concerts on the Deck” is limited to 50. Please enquire on 011 486 3361.
Health fact # 691: The world’s healthiest person weighed 345 kilograms. However she lost all the weight when her husband used to leave the TV on the aerobics channel to inspire her to lose weight. She shed the kilos by getting up every few minutes to change the channel to a show she preferred. This was before the TV remote was invented.
