The Wolfpack in Parkhurst
The design is modern but relaxed and makes this a cool place to chill with mates, grab a bite to eat and enjoy an ice-cold beer.
The trendy Parkhurst strip in Gauteng was yearning for a good, new-fashioned burger joint. Yes, we said new-fashioned, that’s because burgers have become somewhat of an art form of late. Gone are the days of the good ol’ burger, fries and a shake, roll in the era of gourmet burgers with endlessly creative toppings, perfect parings and sensational sides. It’s with this in mind that Greig Walker, Kruger Basson and Tammy Merideth bore the idea to fill that gap, with an ultra-cool and vibey, new-generation burger joint. After a long, boozy night, a discussion about pack mentality and a vow to stick together through thick and thin, The Wolfpack in Parkhurst was born.
Serving up burger creations such as The Big Bad Wolf, a beef burger topped with wasabi onion rings, jalapeños, pancetta and garlic aioli, and served with sides such as sweet potato fries and hummus. Try the beer battered onion rings with wasabi aioli, or for something lighter, the tempura baby marrow sticks, or chilli-cheese fries with mayo.The Wolfpack features an impressive selection of both local and international craft beers to wash your meal down with; beer connoisseurs should definitely try the restaurants’ own brew, The Big Bad APA (American Pale Ale).
The interior has a funky urban vibe, with the back wall featuring a haunting mural of Little Red Riding Hood chased by three wolves – a reference to the owners and management team chasing their restaurant dreams. The design is modern but relaxed and makes this a cool place to chill with mates, grab a bite to eat and enjoy an ice-cold beer.
There are plans to expand to other cities in the future, so keep an eye out for the big bad wolf that could be prowling in your neighbourhood soon.
