Something For Everyone At Scusi

Something For Everyone At Scusi
Scusi bistro is located in the leafy suburb of Parkview on the bustling Tyrone Avenue, a stone's throw away from Zoo Lake and the Johannesburg Zoo. Much like the surrounding area, it has a casual and comfortable feel to it, with a cream and white interior that's offset by black and white photos of Johannesburg in its gold rush heydays. Don't be fooled by its unassuming appearance, this bistro serves some mouth-watering, fresh dishes - they just make it look easy. 

I'm always on the lookout for Johannesburg's best breakfast so I was intent on testing their claim of being the 'best place for breakfast, lunch and dinner'. Alas, Friday night turned into Saturday morning, making lunch the first meal of my day. Not one to take disappointment well, I'm retrospectively glad I was in capable hands. 

Their menu consists of something for every taste although vegetarian dishes are limited. Take your pick from a choice of salads, wraps, burgers, gourmet sandwiches, pastas and even sushi. Easily pair any one of these dishes with craft beer or a glass of wine from their impressive wine list. Don't be deterred by the prices of some meals, the portions are generous so you'll get your money's worth. 

Scusi Bistro is ideal for anyone that's all about tucking into a hearty meal in a casual environment, making it a firm favourite of local families, foodies, young couples and international visitors alike. The breakfast and lunch menu is different from their dinner menu (which is also a lot less daunting in terms of its variety of choices) but you can order from the dinner menu at lunchtime upon request.
