Taigel deli is “home from home” to the many regular customers who relish its more relaxed pace and intimacy, which is a far cry from the usual hustle and bustle of many Sandton restaurants. Relax and unwind at one of the white-washed , cottage-like tables whilst you peruse the menu or check out the latest specials on the blackboard. If you are still undecided and haven’t been tempted by the array of goodies on display (cheesecake to die for, as well as amazing biscuits) you can always just ask the owners Shelly and Max for some advice on what to indulge in.


Catering is certainly one of Shelley and Max’s strong points, and they are able to conjure up the most amazing menus for any occasion. Starters can range from soups, bruschettas (with toppings like roast balsamic vegetables with olive pesto), asparagus and feta wrapped in phyllo, and a delectable smoked fish salad. Mains include stuffed brinjal rolls in a tomato and basil sauce, soy-glazed line fish, and Thai-style penne. Their salads are a real speciality with combinations such as the caramelized pear salad with assorted greens, roasted butternut with rocket and feta, and a couscous salad with roasted peppers, olives, chickpeas and coriander. Desserts are a must with pear and chocolate spring rolls, strawberry cheesecake with strawberry sauce, lemon tart with bruléed topping, to mention but a few. Taigel’s is also available as venue for parties and events – breakfasts, lunches or whatever your need. Their motto is simple “Food made without love is missing the main ingredient.”


Expect wholesome comfort food, such as the legendary chicken soup (guaranteed to get rid of any aliment!). The breakfast combinations are endless from a simple home-made muffin and coffee, to scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and a toasted bagel. Gourmet sandwiches are a speciality with an enormous selection to choose from. Recommendations are the grilled vegetable melt with pesto, the hot beef on rye with schmaltz, mustard and pickled cucumber, or the grilled steak roll with caramelized onions and creamy garlic sauce. There are plenty of salads on the menu too, with interesting options like the Oriental salad which combines julienned vegetables and rice noodles with caramelized nuts, sprouts and sesame seeds all drizzled with a tangy Asian dressing. Another winning salad is the Moroccan one which combines pesto and warm roasted vegetables on a bed of assorted greens, with cucumber, baby tomatoes and a sprinkle of sprouts. Taigel also offers wraps, pitas and tramezzinis as well as home-made soups.
