A new vegan restaurant has opened in Johannesburg! Conscious 108 has been open in Greenside for several weeks now and makes delicious meals. This spot has lovely decor and a warm atmosphere. They have quirky and original touches, like the book boxes they bring your bill in or the little floating shelves, or even the fun filament light bulbs hanging from the wooden beams stretched across the ceiling.
They bring the naughty side of vegan food including all sorts of confectionery. They have chocolate brownies and ice cream! I'm very pleased with this place. I would recommend the mexican burrito bean wrap (whatever they call it) and the 'chicken' mayo sandwich. Their ginger seitan with snow peas is also very good. The bunny chow is impressive too, but you should save some room for dessert!
It's great to have a vegan restaurant that's open on week nights. Try the hot chocolate. There is a delightful surprise in the bottom of the drink
Also check out this review by Joburg's Darling, a sworn carnivore that loves Conscious 108 for what it is... Some of the things she says make me cringe, but she raves about the food and that's what I'm trying to show you.
We've been back to Conscious 108 several times now and I think it's really great. Their food is delicious. I would advise against any expectations for off menu treats or even ice cream on a Wednesday, because as they close on Tuesday, they aren't always fully prepared for service at lunch time the following day.
