taco tuesdays
A month ago this eccentric rum eatery opened it's doors at the Pineslopes centre in Fourways, Johannesburg. 
If you looking for a restaurant that will look good on your Instagram page, then Roxanne's is the place to visit. The interior of the restaurant is really well put together, with cool signs in neon lights and furniture that is very Instagrammable. Get ready to let your hair down because if you're into getting a tattoo, Roxanne's has a tattoo parlour inside the restaurant where the famous tattoo artists from Fallen Heros in Parkhurst can create awesome art on your skin!
The presentation of each meal was well done and I loved the contrast that each dish reflects on the black slate plates. 
For a starter we shared the Meat Plate which was filled with tempura battered ribs, chicken drummettes, bacon molasses meatballs and rump strips.

For our main meals, we ordered a variety of meals to try out.
1.) The "Provocative" Pizza topped with pulled pork, jalapeno and corn 
2.) Chicken Taco served with Kimchi, lime, smashed black beans and corn piccada
3.) Citrus marinated Steak Taco served with Kimchi, coriander, smashed black beans and corn piccada
4.) Crispy Squid and Curly Fries (absolutely divine)

Roaxnne's seems to be quite famous already for their decedent desserts, so we had to try them out. 
For dessert we ordered:
1.) "Sultry" Honeycomb Cheesecake
2.) "Inviting" Waffle topped with Nutella, ice-cream and Oreos
3.) "The Penguin Lady" FreakShake (Milkshake) that contained turkish delight, strawberry lips and rum.
Once again the way in which the dishes were presented was wonderful and of course each dessert was scrumptious.
Out of the three desserts we tasted, the Honeycomb Cheesecake was my absolute favourite. Definitely worth the drive to Fourways for this cheesecake!

When reviewing restaurants, I am always honest about my reviews and never wish to mislead my readers. Don't get me wrong, the food is extremely tasty, however, my only criticism that I have about Roxanne's is that the menu is over priced for what you get. R95 for a milkshake and R90 for a waffle is a little steep. The main meals are not reasonably priced either. For a casual dining experience expect to pay about R300 per head!
