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…

Four & Twenty: A delicious update

I have visted Four & Twenty before and done a full write up. I thought I should do another blog post based on my many many visits in between my first visit and today. On my very first visit I think they had only been open a month or two- by now they have quite…

Breakfast at The Larder

On my first visit to The Larder I feasted on cinnabons, giant hot chocolate and the famous  Johnny Depp breakfast of two soft poached eggs on sourdough with crispy bacon and hollandaise sauce served with delicious exotic tomatoes. You can have a read about my first visit over here! The fantastic breakfast cravings kicked in…

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…

Red Bus, Blue Bus, Wine Bus, Two BUS!

This past weekend we went on a great adventure! I love adventures of all kinds and this one included a bus and a lot of wine. I know – I’ve already sold you! Maybe some background first? I’m sure you’ve seen that bright red bus whizzing around packed with waving tourists hopping on and off…

Graciales: The New Kid on the Block

The Peddlars and Co family just keeps growing! Since Brad Ball has got involved with Peddlars they’ve been cooking up some serious magic both in the kitchen and out! Their newest baby comes in the form of ultra cool, hip, trendy and delicious newbie Graciales! When we dined at Volaré recently we heard whispers of the then…

Dinner at Bistro 1682 at Steenberg

I have wanted to visit Bistro 1682 to try their small plates for a very long time. I took so dang long about it that I actually missed Brad Bell! Bistro 1682 now has a new chef in the form of Kerry Kilpin and although I cannot compare the new menu to the previous  –…

The Fourth Big Bottle Festival

I have a very short list of wine festivals I actually enjoy. Very very short. I like Constantia Fresh, Big Bottle Festival and Moreson’s New School Grand Cru Chardonnay festival. I hate most wine festivals because I always feel leaving ripped of and that I’ve been nickled and dimed. If I have to pay for…

Four & Twenty Cafe and Pantry

I have heard whispers of Four & Twenty Cafe from my very well to do friends who meet for coffee and wear things in shades of cream and shop at Country Road. I meet for drinks followed by tapas, I ruin cream shirts with ice cream drips and wine sloshing and I think Country Road…
