Where To Get Your Chilli Kick In Joburg

Nothing tastes quite as good as a spicy meal. So we have compiled a list of restaurants to visit for great hot meals! Chilli al the way. Let's get started if you dare!


In the heart of Ferndale 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 our old office, 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! Mama Mexicana is your chilli destination of choice when it comes to hot stuff in Maboneng.

RocoMamas - Bedfordview

We went in search of Joburg's HOTTEST burger and discovered RocoMamas "Bedford Bomb"! Exclusive to RocoMamas Bedfordview.

As any chilli addict would tell you, you often suffer withdrawal symptoms from not having enough chilli food in your diet. Beira Alta will definitely fix you up with their peri-peri meals that hit the spot!
