One of the city’s favourite burger joints, Royale Eatery, which was forced to close its doors earlier this year because of government restrictions implemented to curb the spread of COVID-19, has reopened.
Royale Eatery, now under different management, operates from a new location – Claremont in the southern suburbs – but retained all the staff from their Long Street location where it was situated since 2003.
“Like a phoenix, we’ve risen from the ashes by learning to come back as a better version of ourselves,” said the restaurant’s team. They vowed to keep their foundation by offering the same recipes but with a fresh perspective.
In Long Street, the restaurant became famous for its gourmet burgers, fries and double-thick milkshakes. Its burgers, in particular, have attained a hallowed status with many diners describing it as the ‘best burger [they] have ever eaten’.
Sandiswe Ncube, wrote an Eat Out review in 2018 that described himself as a ‘faithful Royale “Eater”‘ for more than seven years. He remarked: “The taste, succulence and decadence of the burgers has remained consistent… This is one of my favourite places in town and I will continue to visit it on a regular basis.”
The restaurant offers more than 50 variations of classic and gourmet burgers and has a selection of beef, chicken, fish, vegetarian and vegan options to pair with their decadent milkshakes.
