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: Shio Restaurant

Shio: Modern Japanese in the Waterkant

Shio is quite comfortably in my top ten restaurants in Cape Town. The food they are creating is incredible and beautiful and unique and whilst being all these things is actually damn delicious too. Shio is the baby sister of Cheyne’s in Hout Bay (another restaurant in my top ten). For a long time if…

PRON: People Republic of Noodles

I put a lot of research into our restaurant visits in Jo’burg. I fortunately have a colleague (and friend) who is both an adventurous eater and very brave in the face of new food thrown his way. We have worked through a long list of firsts and I am determined to turn him into a…

Toomuchloveliness: Lucky Bao

Lucky BAO: Feasting on Bao in the ‘Burbs

The title of this post is actually a personal in joke with myself. Yes, I truly am that lame – I have been getting away with it for years! Its a joke because every time I type bao in my phone, my phone auto-corrects it to BAO. I think this is because it knows how…

The Good Luck Club: For dim sum and cat wallpaper

This is Jo’burg post number two. I couldn’t not follow up my favourite sushi spot in Jo’burg with cat wallpaper at The Good Luck Club! In my first post about Big Mouth I talked about how I will be spending about three months in Jo’burg this year. My challenge for these three months is to…

Kyoto Delights and their new Uni Sushi!

I am a big fan of Kyoto! I love everything they send out of their kitchen. On my first visit I ate almost all of their menu! Last winter I went back for their fantastic winter special which I have my fingers crossed to return this upcoming winter. This visit was about an update of…

Toomuchloveliness" Cheyne's in Houtbay

Cheyne’s: The Ulitimate Foodie Treat

Every single time I go to Cheyne’s I will write a blog post. Every single time. Because every time I visit: I am blown away, there are new exciting options on the menu and a long list of ‘next time I’m ordering this’. The only way to make decisions is to have a cut throat…

My Top Valentine’s Day Picks

Alright. I know. Valentine’s day is stupid. It’s superficial. And I know it’s a big marketing ploy. I know all these things. But I still really like Valentine’s day. I like the sentimental, I like the unnecessary fuss and I like having an excuse to do something special. Valentine’s doesn’t need to be a big…

The Lourensford Harvest Market

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Lourensford during the #DiscoverHelderberg trip for a fantastic wine and Turkish delight pairing. When Dean from InstaEatsCapeTown invited me to join them on an Instawalk to discover the newly relaunched Lourensford Harvest Market I knew I couldn’t resist! First things first – what’s an instawalk? Instagram has this…
