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…

Small Plates with Bistro Sixteen82

We are very spoilt in Cape Town having winelands just round the corner! Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are easy trips but Constantia is even closer!

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…

Exploring the MCC route in the Franschhoek Valley!

The Kitchen at Maison

I recently spend a day exploring Franschhoek! I have become a bit of an expert on Stellenbosch but I know very little about Franschhoek. I was so excited to find out a little more about one of our other great wine destinations! We spent a crazy busy day visiting six fantastic wine farms with a…
