I check out The Raptor Room in Roeland Street

So there’s a new spot in my hood called The Raptor Room – actually they’re not thaaaaat new, they opened up towards the end of last year already…

It’s taken me a while to try them out, even though they’re literally 150m down the road, I think mainly because I was like “ja ja, […]

I try out Ben Wei in Wembley Square

Last weekend I had the pleasure of dining at new sushi-Asian-fusion restaurant, Ben Wei, which is located within Wembley Square.

Now I am both happy and sad that one of The Inside Guide’s list of hottest new restaurants in Cape Town (check out that list over here) has opened right around the corner from my apartment and right […]

La Mouette’s Late Summer menu looks sooo good…

Some exciting things are happening over at La Mouette…  Chef Henry has decided to do away with their old-style a la carte menu in favour of a seasonally inspired 3 or 6 course menu.

Personally I’m super excited about this change, particularly because I’ve been a fan of their 6 course tasting menu for ages […]

I try out the Indian tapas experience over at Thali

A few weeks ago my friends and I decided to try out Chef Liam Tomlin’s (of Chef’s Warehouse) new Indian restaurant, Thali.  Located at number 3 Park road, right next door to Jerry’s Burger Bar & Fat Cactus, the space has undergone quite a lovely renovation to bring you a little touch of India […]

Beer tasting made easy over at Villains Ale House

It’s a casual spot with a sexy dark wood interior, long beer tables, large windows and counters with a street view.  It makes […]

Dalliance in the V&A Waterfront has done a little menu revamp

Now I’m well aware that restaurants in the V&A Waterfront struggle a bit with that “it’s only for tourists” stigma, add to that the fear of it not being good because it’s inside a shopping centre and things get even trickier.  But with all that said, there are a few gems in the V&A […]

I try out new nose to tail eatery, La Tete

One of the restaurants that’s all the hype right now is La Tete which is located in lower Bree St.  It’s a “nose to tail” establishment meaning that they use every possible part of an animal, thus minimising waste, but at the same time also creating some really “interesting” dishes that may not be […]
