Things To Do In Edenvale, Johannesburg – South Africa

Johannesburg is primarily an “urbanite” city, however, I’m a wanderer and constantly on the hunt for something that’s unique, as almost always, attached to this uniqueness are interesting facts and finds that always “ooh” and “ahh” a traveller.
Beyond that, discovering your own country is always thrilling, so I took to driving around the hustling streets of Edenvale, Johannesburg, which has always intrigued me, and found a nostalgic suburb of classics and vintage with a mix of proudly South African meets retro.

  1. The Apple Bite

Edenvale, Johannesburg

There are a few diners and roadhouses to select from in Edenvale and it’s interesting to know that it dates far back to when Edenvale served as a stopover for travellers, whilst the suburb grew, the diners remained due to it’s popularity and present day Edenvale, South Africa is home to four roadhouses.
I found the aesthetically retro Applebite that offers a hearty menu of American classics: pizza, burgers and milkshakes.
