Toomuchloveliness: Middelvlei

Middelvlei Boerebraai – a Proudly South African Experience

We recently joined Middelvlei for a beautiful Sunday afternoon braai! I often get asked by foreign visitors where they can eat traditional South African food. It is a tricky question for me because our food is so varied against so many different cultures. But I have often said the best way is to get yourself…

2019 Winelands Winter Specials

My SUPER HONEST 2019 Winelands Winter Specials

With the great success of my SUPER HONEST 2019 Cape Town Winter Specials list I had a couple of questions about great specials in the Winelands. If you’ve been following the blog for some time you’ll know I am a huge fan of weekends away or even lazy Sunday lunches or fancy date nights out…

Toomuchloveliness: Restaurant Seven

A Winter Special with Restaurant Seven in Somerset West

We recently visited Restaurant Seven in Somerset West to try out their winter special menu. They are offering a set dinner menu of three courses for R295 per person. It was my first visit and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m excited to report we were wow’ed by the subtle blend of a casual…

Toomuchloveliness: Botanicum Cafe & Grill

Botanicum Cafe & Grill for lunching in the ‘burbs

I live in the ‘burbs and love a sneaky Sunday lunch close to home with plenty of wine and indulgent food. To be honest… I like this kinda lunch on Saturday too and wine filled dinners wherever possible. But our visit to Botanicum Cafe & Grill was a Sunday lunch and it just ticked all…

Toomuchloveliness: Macau

Macau Launches their Winter Menu

We recently visited Macau it town to try out their new winter menu! It was my first visit and I absolutely loved the decor and delicious food. Macau is an explosion of flavours. Macau draws on the country’s heritage of Southern Chinese cuisine fused with Portuguese influence from Africa, Latin American and India. You will…

My SUPER HONEST 2019 Cape Town Winter Specials

If you’ve been following the blog for some time you’ll have seen my 2018 post on the Cape Town winter specials. It started like this: The latest Cape Town Winter Restaurant Specials are hitting the internet and I am finding them… disappointing. I’m not sure what your disposable income situation is looking like – but a…

Winter Specials at BOCCA

I have also loved the pizzas at BOCCA but as is the Cape Town way we often don’t visit the same restaurant more than a handful of times. We’re a flippant bunch and we happily flock to the new without going back to visit our favourites. Near the end of last year BOCCA changed hands…

Toomuchloveliness: Charango

Charango in Bree Street goes Barbacoa

I last visited Charango a-whole-nother boyfriend ago. And we had a lovely meal but never felt like I needed to go back. So when an invite to Charango popped into my inbox I though… um, that Peruvian place? Sure… could be good. I quickly popped onto their website and found a completely new restaurant! Charango…

Toomuchloveliness: Buitenverwachting

Buitenverwachting Amuse Vintage Pairing Experience

A little while ago I spent the day exploring Constantia with The Entertainer. I have been using The Entertainer for a good five years now and love the app. Favourites on this year’s app include burgers at Hudsons, Sushi at Manga and a shellac pedi from Hey Gorgeous. For our Constantia day I tick off…

Toomuchloveliness: De Vrije

My New Favourite Burger at De Vrije in Stellenbosch

A few weekends ago we were out in Stellenbosch. We were um’ing and ah’ing between wine tasting, grabbing lunch or heading to Majeka House for an afternoon nap. I was voting for nap – but we were hungry! Luckily Jono remembered we hadn’t yet visited De Vrije, Bertus Basson’s new burger spot in the heart of…
