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…

Toomuchloveliness: Cosecha

Cosecha: For a Mexican Feast in Franschhoek

Cosecha in Franschhoek is a long time favourite of mine. And sadly a spot we do not have a chance to visit often enough. They serve the most brilliant authentic Mexican food on Noble Hill’s wine farm. My idea of a perfect day out of Cape Town would be a walk through Babylonstoren paired with…

Toomuchloveliness: Makaron at Majeka House

Tasting the Spring Menu at Makaron

I am a long standing fan of both Majeka House and Makaron their incredible restaurant. Majeka House is my number one recommendation for a splurge romantic weekend away. Friends have visited for anniversaries and babymoons and have always been wow’ed! I always suggest going early to fit in a splash in their hot tub and…

Toomuchloveliness: Shio

Ten Dish Kaiseki Experience with Shio

I’m a long standing fan of Cheyne’s food – from his original namesake spot, Cheyne’s, in Houtbay to the wonderful Shio in De Waterkant. I love following him on instagram to see what new and exciting dishes he is creating. And a few weeks back he announced his ten dish Kaiseki experience at R350 per…

Toomuchloveliness: Tomo Japanese Restaurant

Tomo Japanese Restaurant for a sushi feast

I am slowly building a best sushi in Cape Town blog post at the request of a friend. It is happening slowly because I want to get it right. I want the beautiful blog posts ready to support the list of delicious gems. We also want to make sure we’ve tried all the great Cape…

Toomuchloveliness: Idiom Wine

Idiom Wine Farm and their new menu launch

I have been a long time fan of Idiom Wine Farm from their lovely Italian wines to their fantastic fine dining menu served in the most beautiful setting. We joined them for lunch when they opened two years ago and had a brilliant experience. Since then they have a new chef and a brilliant new…

Toomuchloveliness: Casa Mori

An Artichoke Lunch with Casa Mori

Wonderful friends of ours host an annual artichoke lunch. It’s one of those – if you know, you know kind of things. Their family farm grows artichokes and every year they open up their home, Casa Mori, cook a ton of artichoke dishes and have a party. This is a “mean-ish” blog post because this…
