Fordsburg (Foodsburg) Food and History Tour

January 6 @ 11:00 am 2:00 pm

Fordsburg stands as one of the earliest surveyed suburbs, situated just to the immediate west of Town, colloquially known as the “working-class west.” Its strategic proximity to the mines rendered it an ideal residence for miners, fostering a diverse community that remains one of the most heterogeneous areas in the city today. As you delve into a brief historical walk, the golden tapestry of Johannesburg’s past intertwines seamlessly with Fordsburg’s narrative, encapsulating the broader history of the Witwatersrand. The tour takes place on Saturday, 6 January 2024.

What Can I Expect From The Fordsburg Food and History Tour?

Venturing through the streets adorned with exceptional street art, our exploration encompasses everything from the legacy of Gandhi to the tales of Gundelfinger, from Great Grandmother to the impactful Armed Revolt of 1922. Around noon, we explore the myriad shops and eateries along Mint Road, a thoroughfare that assaults the senses with its multicultural offerings.

Within a single block, one can relish Turkish, Pakistani, Greek, Syrian, and South Indian cuisine at establishments like House of Schwarma, House of Baklava, Dosa Hut, Shalimar Delights, and Little Istanbul. The market beckons with enticing street food options such as samosas, spring rolls, pies, roti, and freshly squeezed juices. Laden with both culinary delights and shopping bags, we conclude our excursion, and a friendly reminder: bring ample shopping bags, as the temptation to indulge in the rich tapestry of Fordsburg’s food culture may be irresistible. All this can be yours for R250.
