Shisa nyama's are a great way to be in a buzz with good people, music you can dance to and really good meat. If you're lucky, there'll be a couple of salads involved and drinks too.

What to Expect: For an experience that autentically Soweto, where the people of the township of Diepkloof also gather, then Meet Meat is for you. You can expect to hear so of the greatest old school house tunes and some of the latest deep and commercial house tunes. The menu is made up of a variety of red meat, pap and chakalaka.

What to expect: Another authentic shisa nyama experience, expect lots of people, contempory music unless it's a themed evening. Look snazzy, prepare to smile for an occassional snap and have fun. The standard shisa nyama rules apply: meat will be charged according to how much it weighs, drinks are available at the bar. 

3. Industrial Shisanyama, Polokwane, Limpopo

What to expect: Meat, music and food. Industrial Shisa Nyama normally has themed evenings as well as performances from local djs and entertainers. What's certain is that you will not be bored here.
