I was at Johannesburg Tambo Airport on the way home to Australia after a 13 day holiday in South Africa. I had several hours to wait for my flight so I decided to have a meal. It is an interesting exercise walking through the Tambo Airport surveying what to eat. The competition is intense with a small army of waiters touting for your business. I was convinced by a petite young lady with an infectious smile to try Cappello's.
Because I had a loaded trolley, I was escorted to a quiet area across the concourse where I could eat in relative peace. There was a ramp adjacent and the serenity was disrupted by very loud greetings by what appeared to be a number airport staff. One of them caught my eye and with some sign language of a finger to my lips followed by a finger drawn across the throat had the desired effect. The din subsided.
The table was dressed with accessories including condiments like green and red tabasco and a delicious tartare sauce. I was advised that there was no calamari available on this occasion so I settled on fish and chips. I waited for about 15 minutes for my lunch to be prepared. The wait was worth every minute, Here was a large oval plate with a large fillet of battered fish located between a generous serving of chips and on the other side by a tremendous serving of Greek salad. (see photograph.)
One of the best fish & chips I have had. 70 Rand (A$7.00) with two cans of diet cola, 104 Rand. Unbelievable . I don't normally photograph my meal but I needed the evidence to tell the tale.
