Papa San’s latest reinvention: Obi Restaurant

Every local sushi loving Cape Townian knows Papa San! He is famous for his sushi and for closing his restaurant, moving premises and opening the same restaurant under a different name.

Loaves on Long

South China Dim Sum Bar – Revisted

I love South China Dim Sum Bar – I have loved them from the very beginning – before they had printed menus and credit card machines. Now they have printed menus, credit card machines and plenty of new additions to the menu. The deco has gone from seriously sparse to minimalistic design and rustic chic.…

South China Dim Sum Bar
