Zomato Foodie Meet-up

Photo by Lungi
Last week I was invited by the Zomato team to join them and a couple of other foodies for a dinner meet-up at Rockets. I was pretty excited because as you all know I am a huge Zomato fan and use their platform to review any restaurant I go to.

My people

It was really great to meet fellow foodies and exchange our veiws on various food related topics. When our food arrived, we all got out our phones and took photos - for review purposes. Usually when I do this I get a few rolling eyes from friends so it felt super to finally be surrounded by people who 'get it'. 

The food at Rockets was absolutely fantastic!! We all ordered something different and everything that arrived looked superb and had great feedback from everyone. I will definitely be going back and if you haven't been to Rockets yet then please do your stomach a favour and pay them a visit.  

Their cocktail menu is also pretty impressive and I had this strawberry daiquri / pina colada hybrid and it was insanely delicious!

They also have a branch in Rivonia which is just as good but has a more 'date night' type atmosphere as opposed to Parkhurst's famous social vibe.

It was also Lungi's birthday and the Rockets team organised her a surprise slice of what can only be described as heaven! 

A huge thank-you to Zomato and Rockets for allowing this meet-up to take place and for looking after us all so well. I'm so happy to be a part of Zomato in South Africa and I look forward to meeting many more foodies through the Zomato network.


Zomato were also kind enough to give me a Raashee voucher to use as well as one to give away! If you'd like to win this voucher worth R100, head over to my Deer Delights Facebook page, LIKE IT and then comment telling me what your favourite Indian restaurant in Joburg is.
