Inside and You're Out

If there is one thing I am a huge fan of, it is a good burger! Marked by a bright orange door on Bree Street next to the Red Bull Studios is a burger bar that not only has an inspirational story but also serves up one of the tastiest burgers in town! Inside & You’re Out is a unique name. Their burgers are pretty unique too - the artisan cheese of your burger is on the inside of the patty, making it a juicy mouthful with a different spin. But, where did the idea for IYO come from?

The owners Jonah Lewis and Jean-Marc Lenferna de la Motte started the company in 2013 at the tender age of 22. Inspired by wanting to serve ethically sourced food and creating a business that gives back in terms of being eco-friendly, the pair set out to create one of the best burgers in Cape Town and that is exactly what they did winning the Mercedes Eat Out Best Burger in the Western Cape 2015.

The atmosphere is chilled and the menu varies from small bites to burgers, salads, sides and sweets. The burgers are forever changing, as the Chef Jean-Marc likes to keep things fresh in the kitchen. My personal favourite is the Dew Truffles (R98) and sweet potato fries , and do not get me started on the Oreo cheesecake served with the perfect side of milk! (R50) IYO stocks a great variety of local beers and now has a deli with delicious local products! Get the theme? Support local!

So next time you are around Bree Street pop in and try these burgers! With exciting developments, such as expanding the restaurant and opening a bar, these guys are the ones to watch! I look forward to a bright future, one as bright as the orange from Inside & You’re Out!
