Chef’s Warehouse: An Update

When I originally wrote about Chef’s Warehouse the 8 tapas dishes to share for two was R260. When we went the other day we had our standard order and were a little surprised with the bill. The tapas for two is now R410. So in the space of roughly a year the price has gone…

Bistro 13’s New Winter Menu

I recently had a fabulous lunch at Bistro 13 trying out their winter menu. I was actually blown away by the great deal and I can’t wait to go back again! Their winter special is a deal on their Feed Me Experience. The Feed Me Experience is a great opportunity to try many of their…

Jordan and their Bakery

Allee Bleue

Summer is for adventures! And my favourite adventures involve a passport. When I can’t be jet setting I like to explore a little more locally. On a gorgeous sunny day we set off to Franschhoek to visit Allee Bleue! The best adventures start with sparkling wine and luckily Allee Bleue was able to help us…

Stables at Vergelegen Wine Estate

After a particularly fantastic wine tasting of Vergelegen wine we headed through their herb garden and straight for their restaurant! Vergelegen is home to both the gorgeous and upmarket Camphors and the more casual bistro style Stables at Vergelegen. This visit we had the pleasure at dining at the beautiful Stables. The restaurant it truly…

Enrico’s in Keurbooms

Enrico’s is a Keurbooms institute but from an outsiders point of view it looks like sheer madness. Families stand and queue an hour before the restaurant even opens for dinner service, SA celebrities get sent to queue being told by Enrico that all his customers are VIP and deserve the same service and booking is…

Lunch at Cafe Paradiso

It was my birthday recently- and for lunch I went to Cafe Paradiso. This was a wonderful choice and I had a perfect meal! So thank you thank you Cafe Paradiso for a wonderful birthday lunch. Cafe Paradiso is found at the top of Kloof Street- 110 Kloof street to be precise. And it is…

Terroir for Lunch

And his fancy lunch took place at Terroir found on the Kleine Zalze Wine Estate off the R44 in Stellenbosch. Terroir has recently been awarded number nine in the Eat Out Restaurant Awards in South Africa for 2012.…

The Love Cafe in Ponta do Ouro

Ponta do Ouro in Mozambique is an amazing place to go scuba diving- but there isn’t really much else there. Not that I’m complaining but I find their restaurants are pretty lacking and they can actually boast that one of my worst meals ever was eaten in a restaurant in Ponta do Ouro. I was therefore very excited to…
