Clarke’s: The ultimate hangover cure

After a big night out that started with amazing pizza at Dizzy’s , followed by a game of battleshots (surprisingly lethal) and back to Dizzy’s for more drinks and dancing around til very early in the morning I was feeling a little sorry for myself.

Mondiall

Mondiall is the newest addition to the Waterfront started by Peter Tempelhoff of Greenhouse fame and international Restaurateur Patrick Symington. They must have the best view of the whole Waterfront. I love sitting outside in summer to take in beautiful Table Mountain and the twinkling lights.

Beefcakes

I took my 75 year old grandmother to Beefcakes. Yes Beefcakes- the one with the half naked waiters, innuendo filled menu and weekly drag queen shows. Yes- that’s where I took my 75 year old grandmother for dinner. And she LOVED it! My family headed down to Beefcakes to try their Manic Mondays special – 2-4-1 burger night. We…

City Bowl WINE Market
