We love it when you talk local

There’s a lot that’s lekker about calling Mzansi home, but our lingo is probably the best thing about being South African. Speaking more than one language might be a big deal elsewhere in the world, but over here, it’s just the South African way. You could let out a howzit in one breath and a heita in the next. And don’t even get us started on the South Africanisms that make tourists scratch their heads in confusion. There aren’t many places where the word sorry means excuse me, or where hundreds has less to do with maths and more to do with total agreement.

The next time you head to a Wimpy near you, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. If you’ve been SBWLing some South African flavour with a bit of local lingo on the side, look no further than our new menu.

Before our new Wimpy menu made its way to our restaurants, we invited a few of Mzansi’s most-loved influencers to take a bite of our latest offerings. They included mommy blogger, Mari-Louise Candiotes and YouTuber, Sipho ‘Sipho Says’ Muchindu. What started out as a tasting session quickly turned into a conversation about local lingo and food. If that sounds like your cup of Premium Coffee, check out the video below:

So, what should you expect on your next visit to Wimpy?

Looking for that mnandi flavour worth getting out of bed for? We’ve got two words for you: Lekker Breakfast. And it’s definitely lekker… or lekke? Well, you say it your way, we’ll say it ours.

Anyway, with this brekkie you can look forward to 2 eggs, 3 rashers of streaky bacon, 100g beef boerewors, and a corn, cheese, and caramelised onion paptert topped with grilled onions. The Lekker Breakfast is also served with our Famous Wimpy Relish and a slice of toast.

You know that feeling of disappointment you get when you open the tub of ice cream in your fridge, only to find yesterday’s leftovers in there... well, there’ll be nothing left over when you order our Chicken Livers & Paptert for lunch. Ungazincishi. Enjoy 200g of spicy tomato chicken livers, served with a corn, cheese, and caramelised onion paptert.

Beef or chicken? Why choose when you can have both! Enjoy a 120g sirloin steak, 200g spicy tomato chicken livers, grilled onions, and a slice of toast.

South African mornings are something else. There always seems to be a taxi that stopped with no warning, traffic that moves slower than the Monday after a long weekend, and a vendor at the robot who just doesn’t seem to believe that you already have enough aux cables. At least you have the new Mzansi Brekkie to look forward to. Enjoy 1 egg, 2 rashers of streaky bacon, a pork banger, a slice of grilled tomato, and a slice of toast.
