New Vibrant Pop-Up Event:​ No Rules Cafeteria Returns To Johannesburg

After four sold-out events, the girls behind Joburg’s newest pop-up restaurant, No Rules Cafeteria, are back for the Summer Edition of this seasonal event. Launched in May this year, the pop-up will take over the Tennis Court of the Dunkelder Theatres in Johannesburg on the 2nd of November, from 2 pm to 7 pm.

Limited to just 60 guests, this garden pop-up features Six Dogs Distillery welcome drinks, a 3-course harvest table feast prepared by co-founder Khanya Mzongwana, live entertainment, Publik Wine wines, craft beer from Devil’s Peak Beer, Richmond Hill Brewing Co’s hard lemonade, 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, color 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,” added Mzongwana.

A dynamic all-female team started the unique pop-up restaurant. Khanya Mzongwana, Sydney Keeney and Tayla Foong merged their different skill sets to make the idea of innovative dining work.

“No Rules Cafeteria is for interesting and interested guests that are keen on the idea of breaking down the constructs of a fine dining experience. It is a fusion of culinary excellence, curated tune makers, and crafted personal elements which creates an experience that elevates it from other pop-up spaces currently operating around the country,” says Keeney who manages the art direction of the brand.

Music and art are 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.
