I recently went out with my pregnant sister to Brooklyn Mall in Pretoria to get some last minute baby supplies. I asked her what she wanted to eat and her reply was "anything you want". I like to go to this mall and have eaten at many of the "finer" eateries as well as their quick takeaway options; however when she asked me, I knew there was only one place I really wanted to take her and my [unborn] nephew. Wimpy.

We have so many fond memories at Wimpy as a family. I wanted the little one to also share in making special Wimpy memories. It is the type of family restaurant that is well known for their breakfast and burgers. They now sell steaks, chicken and pap (amongst others), yet I am not much of a fan of their other menu dishes.

There was a special when we went there mid-November 2016 for a burger (which included an egg, beef patty, bacon and sauces amongst other things), chips and a cold-drink (soda). The chips were slightly over cooked, bordering on almost-burnt, but the burger was absolutely delicious. The service from our waiter who I think said he was from Zimbabwe was welcoming and great.

Their list of diet drinks that were part of the reasonable R69 (about $5 USD) meal on special were rather limited (for example they didn't offer Diet Sprite as part of the meal). I enjoyed my meal with a Sprite, which was my first choice. All in all, the food was great. As an extra feather in their cap, the play area (under the escalators) was near enough to see the little ones play.
