A really, really long time ago I wrote about the very first Perfect Match Food and Wine Pairing Market in Kramerville. In that review I told you about the awesomeness that is The Counter; food gurus of note! Well, today I figured that it was high time that they got the limelight all to themselves in a review of their own. If you are yet to sample their delicious grub well then it is also about time that you hightail it over to one of their haunts for a nibble. Here’s why I am besotted with the king of the Joburg market scene, The Counter.

The Counter started in 2011 and is all about simple, fresh, seasonal and locally sourced gourmet food. The creative duo, Meg and Ian love to feed people and they do it oh-so-well! They have been in the hospitality industry for over thirteen years respectively and it’s clear when taking a bite into their yummy eats that they know what they’re doing. From delicious burgers and sarmies to sweet treats, The Counter does it all. The legendary foodies currently sell their wares at various markets, festivals and restaurants around Joburg and also provide catering for private events that need a little extra pizzaz. The duo say their ultimate goal is to own a gorgeous shop selling freshly made burgers, sammiches, brownies, pastries, cakes, homemade sweets and bottled goods and I’m holding thumbs that it happens very soon!

Because the duo are all about fresh, fresh, fresh their menu changes every week, according to what they feel like serving and what they can get their hands on. They also LOVE bacon so there will always be something with bacon on it; which is music to my ears! Some of the culinary delights on their menu include a Homemade Beef Burger served with crisp bacon, white cheddar and handmade Harissa mayonnaise and the Hot Blonde sarmie with lemon and rosemary chicken breast, crispy bacon, crème fraiche style Caesar dressing and parmesan crisps. Their gooey chocolate brownies also boast legendary status on the market scene and their famous Rocky Road Bars are quite something to behold and savour. I got the chance to sample a yummy burger and chocolate brownie from their selection and all I can say is; “wow!”

You can find The Counter and their delicious bites at Market on Main in the Johannesburg CBD every Sunday, The Perfect Match Market on the last Friday of every month in Kramerville, Jozi Craft Beer Fest which happens in Autumn every year, and Fourways Farmers Market every Sunday. They will also come to you to provide catering for corporate or private events!
