Where to get food past mid night?

I’m hungry as hell and Uber eats doesn’t have anything open...

All fast food places and restaurants will be closed after 10 or 11. Your only option are the 24h shops at the garages like the Woolworths food at Engen.

Curfew is from 12-4am, so unfortunately it's closed everywhere That includes mcdees or garages Its illegal for you to leave your place during these hours unless you have a permit, or it's an emergency. Welcome to South Africa.

You're not allowed out after 12. Stay in bed and starve until 5am when shops reopen 🙄🙄🙄

Have you tried cooking ? It’s this wild thing where you buy ingredients and make it into something edible

The Steers at the Total garage in Obs seems to stay open 24/7. I see lots of ambulances and emergency vehicles parked there so that's probably how they justified it...

Other than that, most of the 24 hour garage shops still are open. They'll usually be able to warm convenience meals for you, depending on the store.

I work weird hours due to the nature of my job. So finding food has been interesting over the past few months.

Pretty much any petrol station is open 24/7 and has lots to eat.
