Restaurant fans choose their favourites for 2016 Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Best Everyday Eateries
SA’s best guide to SA’s best food is recognising its readers’ favourite restaurants once again in the Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Best Everyday Eateries. The winners are determined by highest average star ratings – awarded by the public on eatout.co.za – over a year-long period.
The categories for 2016 are as follows:
Best African Eatery
Best Asian Eatery
Best Burger Eatery
Best Coffee Shop
Best Country-Style Eatery
Best Indian Eatery
Best Italian Eatery
Best Seafood Eatery
Best Food Truck (new)
Best Tapas Eatery (new)
Best Mexican Eatery (new)
The Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Best Everyday Eateries were held for the first time in 2015, with 10 categories for each province. “In response to crowd favourites and to reflect current restaurant and food trends across the country, we decided to add three more categories for 2016 – Best Food Truck, Best Tapas Eatery and Best Mexican eatery,” says editor-in-chief of Eat Out, Anelde Greeff.
Mercedes-Benz is sponsoring theses accolades for the second consecutive year. Says Selvin Govender, Marketing Director of Mercedes-Benz Cars: “The Best Everyday Eateries gives people the opportunity to celebrate the more casual restaurants that they love to visit regularly with their friends and family. We encourage Eat Out readers to give their favourite eateries a chance to shine by reviewing them before the closing date.”
How the Best Everyday Eateries work
Over the course of the year, members of the public visit eatout.co.za to rate and review the eateries they’ve visited recently. In each of the categories for each province, the qualifying restaurants with the highest average star ratings between 1 October 2015 and 30 September 2016 will be awarded at this year’s Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Best Everyday Eateries. There will be two celebrations of the winners in October 2016 – one in Gauteng and one in Cape Town. Restaurants that perform well in their category but don’t meet all the criteria to win are eligible for ‘highly commended’ certificates.
Review, make a difference and stand a chance to win
For each review posted, Eat Out will pledge a meal for a hungry child through Stop Hunger Now Southern Africa. Eat Out is also giving away R1000 to one lucky reviewer per month until the end of September 2016. All the reviews written in the year period until that date will influence which restaurants take home the top prizes in each category.
