No Rules Cafeteria Vol 3. is back to serve up design, detail, colour and tastiness on an overflowing harvest table

Following four sold out shows, since the collective launched No Rules Cafeteria in May this year, the girls behind Joburg’s newest pop-up restaurant are back for the Summer edition of this seasonal event.

The pop-up returns to Johannesburg on Saturday, 2 November 2019 from 2pm to 7pm, this time taking over Dunkelder Theatre’s Tennis Court.

Limited to only 60 guests, this garden pop-up features welcome drinks by Six Dogs Distillery, a 3-course harvest table feast prepared by co-founder Khanya Mzongwana, live entertainment, wines from Publik Wine, craft beer from Devil’s Peak Beer, hard lemonade from Richmond Hill Brewing Co, coffee by Billy Dukes and an experimental dessert station by fellow female-led start-up, Yococo.

“No Rules is an extra fluid creative dining experience built on a solid foundation of good art, amazing friends and fantastic food,” says Mzongwana.

The flavors experienced at a No Rules will never be repeated at any other pop-up and each experience is set to be more unctuously delicious in design, detail, colour and tastiness level. Expect a grown up meal in a whimsical, out-of-the-box kind of way.

“Prepare yourself for an indulgent summer feast for the eyes and taste buds – smoky fall-apart brisket with fresh black cherry mustard, a fresh nectarine burrata plate, a chlorophyll pickle with a bit of cbd oil and some homage to my instagram cook friends. Cbd is a pretty trendy thing at the moment and it’s in the big foraged salad we’re serving with the meal,” laughs Mzongwana.

No Rules was started by a dynamic all-woman team – Khanya Mzongwana, Sydney Keeney and Tayla Foong have combined their very different skill sets to make the alternative dining concept work.

Music and art is an integral part of the No Rules experience – on the bill is photographer and DJ, Andile Buka, as well as alternative soul singer Moonga K, who will serenade guests with songs from his latest EP titled, ‘An Ode to Growth’.

Book your seat to this bespoke foodie experience with no rules on what to wear, no rules on what to eat and no rules on what to like.

Limited tickets can be purchased via Quicket.
