Looking back, I did a lot of eating this year… A LOT. It definitely explains the few extra kilos I’m currently trying to shake, but hey, I’m a girl who lives by the philosophy of “I don’t want to look back one day and say: I should’ve eaten that”. 😉
I decided to do a bit of a review of the restaurants I featured on Cape Town My Love this year to come up with my top 5 for 2017. A pretty easy task, so I thought, but looking back at all the amazing meals I was lucky enough to enjoy, a lot of serious internal debate followed.
But before we get to the top 5, I felt there were two special mentions I had to make. The first is a big shout out to the fish tacos at Motherland Brewers – I’ve since tried El Burro’s Taqueria, Cabrón Taco Bar & most recently Fuego in Sea Point and none of them came close…The second is Porcini Butter Fillet at La Belle Bistro (Camps Bay). Think perfectly cooked fillet covered with baby button mushrooms, roast chipollini onions & a porcini butter sauce, resting on a bed of creamy mash potatoes… Right, now we can get down to my official top five. Starting with number 5: Zenzero In position number 4: Reverie Social Table In position number 3: The restaurant at Cavalli In position number 2: CHEFS And… drum roll please… the number one spot for 2017 goes to: Foxcroft! So yeah, 2017 was most certainly a very good year for eating. Here’s hoping that 2018 brings even more deliciousness, and hell, even a few extra kilos.
