Nandos

Eastgate’s food court offers a variety of tempting treats to steer you off your diet. However, Nandos stands out as a beacon of light among the ice cream parlours, fast food takeouts and gourmet milkshakes. Their Vitality meal is the perfect portion of grilled chicken breast, grilled mielie and serving of salad. Add a little flavour to your bowl by choosing a basting sauce and their Watermelon Fizz drink. Who knew that fast food could be this good for you?

 

Eastgate’s Aquaponics Farm District 

In November 2019, Eastgate’s innovative Aquaponics Farm District opened its doors. A first for any shopping centre of its kind in Southern Africa, this rooftop farm will provide Eastgate’s tenants and shoppers with the freshest produce right from the source. You can purchase fresh lettuce and assorted vegetables at Entrance 10 of the mall from January 2020, so you really have no excuse not to hop onto the healthy living bandwagon.
