Bought a chicken gatsby at Golden Dish the last time I was down in Cape Town (about 3 months back). Quality has definitely dropped big time.. and they skimping on the filling.. maybe 20 chips in total, and a thin layer of very saucy chicken.
i stay close to them but havnt had it in few years

Is it wrong to like polony on gatsby? The last gatsby I had was calamari, but if I was on the cheap I would settle for reconstituted sliced meat.
When I go back home that’s the only one I get. Nothing better. Polony and veg atchar. ****ing marvelous.

Apparently that was how the first original gatsby was made. Chip, polony and atchar and you can still get it from the fisheries in Athlone.

That’s what I’m referring to. Athlone fisheries though. Not supa fisheries.

In the 80's gatsby's was bought at fisheries around the cape flats. Originally only polony or vienna. In the 90's things got 'exotic" with boerwors/steak/chicken etc.
As kids we would buy a polony gatsby for R3.26 cut in four.

Golden Dish has been crap since early 2000's. I distinctly remember (being the designated driver and sober) the cockroaches one late Friday/early Saturday.

The rest of guys and other patrons did seem to notice. But that was the last GD saw of me.

Ahem behold a connoisseur.

So Continental in Observatory are quite good. We order every Friday in the office a few full dagwood or full house ones they call it. The special is R249 for two full gatsbys with a 2L cooldrink. That is with one steak and the other being chicken. The cheese and eggs make it really nice. The chips are properly cooked unlike the Sunrise.

We used to go to Sunrise in Mowbray but they don't deliver and they don't use a baguette but a mofo big roti as the bread. Also their filling and chips were sub par like half cooked so we had to switch. Since we found Continental we get between 2-4 full gatsbys every Friday so it isn't just my input but all my colleagues aswell who think so. Looking forward now to tomorrow. XD YEAAAAH BOIIIIIIIIII!

Cosy Corner's Tandori Gatsby was a usual for me. I've not had a Gatsby since moving to the northern suburbs.
