The Kitchen of Oz crowned Best Burger in Joburg

After weeks of sumptuous sampling and getting to taste Joburg’s most gastronomic burger sensations, Anele and the Club and a cross section of judges have found a winner.

All in all it was a frenzy of tasting and chewing and lipsmacking and mmmm-ing all around the city to finally name the winner of the Best Burger in Joburg.

There was huge anticipation as Anele announced the winner and supporters were shouting their favourite up to the last minute. Chef Oz said, “Thank you for the support, it’s been amazing and it looks like we need a new kitchen to meet the demand. We are there to serve.” Based in Emmarentia, and established in 2017, The Kitchen of Oz saw Chef Oz start the business with one gas stove. His food truck business now caters for festivals, corporate events and special occasions.

Executive mayor, councillor Mpho Phalatse, Neo Nontso of ‘Dine With Neo’ and JMPD spokesperson Xolani Fihla made up the judging panel, and for younger tastes Philisiwe Moyo, a Grade 6 pupil at Bordeaux Primary School was also invited to judge.

Three of the six finalists made the shortlist in another rousing Best of Joburg contest. Bev’s Burgers took second place and walking away with a highly respectable third place was Joe’s Burgers.

Listeners who called in also showed their support for finalists BGR Rosebank known for its quality of meat, Ribs and Burgers for its freshly sourced products and doing things in the old-fashioned way and Grill King for its massive and delicious burger.

Anele said, “It was a super delicious process and we had an enormous amount of fun. It was really hard to choose but we’re thrilled to have named our winner and hope to see their burger business boom. We loved the soul, spirit and energy at Kitchen of Oz.

“Thanks to our listeners who sent in hundreds of entries and made it possible for Anele and the Club on 947 to bring you the Best Burger in Joburg.”
