Where To Get Your Chilli Kick In Joburg

Nothing tastes quite as good as a chilli or spicy meal on a cold winter’s evening. So we have compiled a list of restaurants to visit for great hot meals!



In the heart of Linden hides one of our favourite restaurants in the country. Authentic Indian is the name of the game and we love playing there. This restaurant, right next to the Whippet, comes highly recommended for all things spicy. Their curries come in three choices: not spicy, mild and hot. The hot is perfectly hot and not under nor overwhelming as other restaurants. We recommend the vegetarian curries as every one of them is amazing.

Food at dylan’s will have you rolling your eyes back with sheer pleasure. And for your chilli kick, go straight for the Jalapeño Burger or Chilli Burger – definite hunger buster and chilli kicker!

Mama Mexicana

Don’t mess with the chilli hotness of this restaurant’s meals. Seriously, if you can’t handle chilli, keep it mild. But for chilli experts, there’s no better spicy kick than one from this joint!
