Burgers in Cape Town? The Dogs Bollocks …

The Dogs Bollocks, Cape Town’s burger joint in Roodehek Street, Gardens, where the burgers are famously fabulous & the size of a small tortoise, the way I see it. Head into Roodehek Street (off Buitenkant), look for the parked white 70’s Lotus & hang a left (on foot) into the Yard driveway that is the Bitches Tits by day (open from breakfast time onwards) & the DB by night. How it works? Nigel only makes 50 burgers a night so don’t go thinking you can pitch up whenever you feel like it for your dinner. Not gonna fly. Do the sensible thing people – get there early & swiftly book your spot. Your name goes on the door, you place your order when – & only when – Nigel is ready for you & your time will come. Sure you’ll wait a bit, but it’s worth it as that burger is uber satisfying, lathered in layers of the sauce of your choice, onion rings, pickles, tomato & a LOT of iceberg lettuce, (too much for me) but don’t be distracted by all that greenery …deliciousness awaits. Red & white vino (no label I could see) is available at R60 a bottle, plus soft drinks & beer. What you need to bring: wet wipes (you’ll see why) & if manhandling your bun is not your style, take your own foodie tools. It’s a mess I won’t lie, but when you get that burger craving, it’s the ‘go to’ place. Nigel is Cape Town’s reigning burger king.
