The Apple Bite has moved from 95 Van Riebeeck Avenue to 27D Central Avenue Eastleigh, Edenvale. Established in 1972, the restaurant is iconic for serving good old fashioned roadhouse food, the ‘right’ way.
The restaurant is owned by Raymond Daniel and his two sons, Edan and River. ‘After 48 years, we said goodbye to our premises at 95 Van Riebeeck Avenue. Sadly, Covid-19 had a big impact on us, as we are sure it did with other businesses too,’ said Edan.
‘We definitely pride ourselves on our good old Dagwood and Blonie, as well as our tasty ribs. We are also known for our amazing one of a kind hand-cut chips,’ he said. The Apple Bite now serves new designer milkshakes, including Bar One, Hershey’s, Rolo, speckled eggs and many more.
Almost every person in Edenvale has a memory of The Apple Bite Edenvale, and the owners are ready to create new memories at their new premises. Here are some of the memories customers shared on Facebook:
Carlo Minenza: ‘Being from Kensington at the time, we were regulars – bouncing between Pure and Cool and The Apple Bite in the good old days. Not so many years ago we took all the kids to the ‘roadhouse’ there for the experience and they loved it.’
Sean Lottering: ‘An Edenvale icon! I have lived in Edenvale for 40+ years and eaten great food at the Apple Bite. Sad to see it move, but will be there at the new location, looking forward to it. #ApplebiteIsPartOfLifeInEdenvale.’
Frankie Stephanou: ‘We have fond memories of taking our kids there for milkshakes and burgers over many years in the nineties. Good luck for the new venture.’
Maxine Reid said, ‘It’s one of my earliest memories as a little girl – going to Apple Bite with my parents. Now I’m 31. I will follow where you are going to because no one can beat the Apple Bite. May you gain great new successes at your new premises.’
Ronel Ludick: ‘My late father used to go to the Apple Bite while growing up in Edenvale and when he joined the Police College (he took girls there for dates he told us). And he used to take us to Apple Bite when we grew up. Two generations of memories.’
