There are few places in Pretoria that excite the foodie in me. I consider myself an Indiana Jones of discovering these places because I have become wary of being subjected to generic food chains that produce the same tasting food. One of these discoveries is Lucky Rodrigo, just off Lynnwood Road in Pretoria. I discovered this place because one of my friends recommended it. He visits Shivas, a nearby pub, far too often and decided to check out Lucky Rodrigo one day and loved it. Now I love it.
Lucky Rodrigo is a quiet restaurant in a quiet area. It has a pretty random location considering a lot of upcoming cafes and delis are located in Arcadia and Hatfield. I could say that the area is in the perfect suburbia and walking into the restaurant transports you back into the 70's. I could imagine that Lucky Rodrigo could have been the perfect almost bunker looking restaurant back then if Russia and America decided to get it on and screw the world.

So I suggest you make your way to Lucky Rodrigo and make yourself happy. They recently launched a new menu so you will find me there!
