It might only have been open for a handful of weeks, but Tiger’s Milk has become one of our favourite places to catch up with friends over drinks, have a burger with the fam and sample some of Joburg’s best (and most creatively described) cocktails.
Pick your poison
Every afternoon, from 4pm to 7pm, selected beers, wines and cocktails are on special. So you can get half off draughts like Tiger’s Milk and Part Wolf. These beers are brewed in the Cape, exclusively for Tiger’s Milk. The wines on special are Hampton & Co red or white, and the cocktails on offer are the Ginslinger, Martini and Cosmopolitan. That’s bound to get the evening off to a good start!
Make Monday blues a thing of the past with the 2-for-1 burger special. Take your pick of any burger on the menu and add chips, salad or onion rings, and then get a second one free! We sampled the Magic Mushroom, which comes with truffle-infused mushroom sauce. Delish!
Their burger patties are all 100% beef and made on the premises. The buns are also baked freshly in the restaurant every day.
The menu on Tiger’s Milk has it all, so you can arrive for breakfast and stay till the stars are out. (You might gain a little weight in the process, but happiness comes first, right?) The Gunslinger cocktail is described on the menu as “owns a gun” and the “Stepchild” is an original beef burger. Because ordering food should be fun.
On the first and last Saturday of the month, there’s a DJ from 6pm. “When does it end?” we asked manager Nkosi. “When you fall down,” he said. That sounds like our kind of party!
Go to Tiger’s Milk for a working lunch during the week, after-work cocktails, weekend lunches with your family (kids are welcome) or Saturday parties. Just go! Book your table, because this place gets full.
