A Jozi hamburger hangout established by popular South African actor and TV presenter Maps Maponyane has made the cut as one of the best in the world.

Bloomberg asked some of the world’s best chefs and culinary luminaries to vote for their favourite burgers, from New York to Sydney and everywhere in between – and Maponyane’s cool spot made the list.

Maponyane opened Buns Out Burgers in September 2019 and the restaurant was chosen for Bloomberg’s list by TV chef Lorna Maseko. He now also has a branch in Durban.

“This new joint in suburban Linden is the first of actor and TV celebrity Maps Maponyane. It has attracted a lot of media attention,” Bloomsberg noted

There are about a dozen burgers on the menu, including vegetarian and vegan options.

Quirky names for the burgers include “Is It Brie You’re Looking For?”

Maponyane’s restaurant is the only South African burger joint included on the list.

So, if you’re looking for some of the best burgers in town, get your buns to this saucy spot!
