Taproom Dining at Jack Black Brewery

The Taproom at Jack Black Brewery is not too far from where we live. They host some amazing events such as a Food Truck Friday and Quiz Nights. They also have a seriously delicious menu with really affordable pricing. A couple of public holidays ago we popped down to The Taproom for a casual lunch…

Shared Plates at The Potluck Club

I had a friend visiting from Melbourne and I needed a restaurant that would knock his socks off. This was his third trip to Cape Town so he knows about out our fantastic foodie culture. Picking one restaurant was tricky but I think Potluck Club seriously helped me out with incredible food and massive wow-factor!…

Tacos at Door 221

My first introduction to Door 221 was a drunken evening where I spent R250 on french fries. Granted we were all marvelously tipsy and I took it upon my self to buy french fries for the entire table as somehow we had managed to miss dinner. We spent the majority of our evening of Tuning…

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…

The Taqueria: Baby El Burro

It is beyond beautiful and seriously instagramable with plants on the walls, gorgeous colours, great tiles and stunning food! We were an already tipsy and noisy group who they happily accommodated in one of their booths. You can’t make…

I love brunch! I’ve always found breakfast unreasonably early. I also really really love the Pot Luck Club. They make some seriously delicious food! So when given the opportunity to pair my two loves of the Pot Luck Club and brunch it was an obvious yes. On Sundays¬† the Pot Luck club serves up a…

Cape Town Festival of Beer

We were lucky enough to go to the Cape Town Festival of Beer on the most beautiful sunny day! This was the first truly large-scale beer festival that either of us had attended, and our excitement (particularly mine) levels were through the roof! We arrived bright and early, just as the festival gates had opened,…

Sussex Open Studios in Woodstock

Sometimes the most wonderful and amazing things will happen in Cape Town and you will never know about it. If I didn’t know someone, who knew someone who knew one of the people behind this I would NEVER have heard about the Sussex Open Studios. Luckily I did and I get the opportunity to enlighten…

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. Mondiall is open seven days a week, offering breakfast,…
