Foodies Unite. The Ranaka family recently launched their very own restaurant in Leondale, Gauteng. Well known Mzansi’s radio and television presenter Dineo Ranaka and her family are officially returners.
The stylish and fresh restaurant has a very relaxed and homey vibe. Dineo stated that the inspiration was “typical black financial dynamic”, reported Channel 24.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the food at ‘Lapeng La Ranaka’ is very proudly Mzansi. It caters for the majority and the prices are affordable. Prices are kept to a minimum to allow those with little to be able to enjoy a meal out too.
The menu is very traditional with tripe, dumplings, chakalaka and even chicken feet. You are sure to feel super satisfied form these homey meals.
Dineo said that opening the restaurant with her family was a way of getting them together. When you have your own families, life gets away with you at times and it becomes challenging to get everyone together.
“Black tax” was a big driving force behind the start-up of the restaurant. Dineo and her family wanted to help create jobs. The restaurant has now given unemployed people in the community a chance to work.
As Mama Ranka is a qualified chef, Dineo thought that her mother would be the perfect one to be the front face of the business.
While Ma Ranka runs the show, Dineo and her siblings will form part of the floor staff. They feel that it is important for them to show the community that they are not too good for a watering job. A job is a job.
