Dash Restaurant & Bar gets a new chef and a fresh new menu for Summer

Chef Albert Bronkhorst has taken over the reigns at Dash Restaurant & Bar and I recently joined them for a Chef’s Table dinner to get a taste of his new menu.

Situated within the Queen Victoria Hotel in the V&A Waterfront, Dash has always been a top recommendation for me for a sexy date night or special […]

Love pizza? Then you need to check out The Base at The President Hotel

I love pizza more than I love life… 😉  Not surprising then that I’m always on the lookout for a hot new pizza spot to indulge in all my carb fest fantasies…

A few week’s ago I discovered a new gem.  It’s called The Base and it’s the newest offering at the The President Hotel […]

Cavalli Estate gets a hot new chef and a fresh new menu

The Cavalli Estate situated on the R44 just outside Somerset West, en route to Stellenbosch, is one of those kinds of places that simply just wows you.  If I was into marriage and all that stuff, this would definitely be on my top 3 dream wedding venues list, but for now, I’m just happy that […]

    There was definitely fire at Firefish – the new Kove Collection restaurant in the V&A ;)

There was definitely fire at Firefish – the new Kove Collection restaurant in the V&A ;)

I’m going to be honest, I’ve been sitting on this post for quite some time, not sure how to position it due to some hiccups on the night.   But, I eventually decided to just put it out there, warts and all (so to speak), because it was only 3 weeks after their doors opened for business […]

Great coffee, breakfasts & art collide at Ground Art Caffe

The De Waterkant area is of course well-known for its awesome coffee spots, galleries and eateries… But Ground Art Caffe has somehow managed to blend all of those things into one fantastic little space that’s definitely a must see.

Located at 16o Strand St, this cool corner spot serves up a mean cuppa made from […]

Have you checked out the new Tiger’s Milk on Kloof yet?

So there’s a new Tiger’s Milk on Kloof… well actually there are two entrances:  one on the Kloof St side next to NY Slice and the other on the Rheede St side across the road from Sawaddee:

Decor wise, you’re looking at the classic Tiger’s Milk vibe we’ve come to know – quirky & casual, large […]

    Zenzero gets a sexy new look and a fresh new authentic Italian menu

Zenzero gets a sexy new look and a fresh new authentic Italian menu

Zenzero has always been a top option for me as far as the Camps Bay strip goes. The last meal I had there (albeit a couple of years ago) was fantastic… but due to my constant quest for “the next big thing”, I often find myself in a position where I don’t get a chance to […]

    The most divine beef fillet (and other great dishes) over at La Belle Bistro & Bakery in Camps Bay

The most divine beef fillet (and other great dishes) over at La Belle Bistro & Bakery in Camps Bay

I recently enjoyed a beautiful, leisurely lunch at a cute little Camps Bay spot called La Belle Bistro & Bakery.

They actually also have a 2nd branch at The Alphen Boutique Hotel in Constantia, but I opted for a sea view as it was a lovely sunny day and I wanted to maximise that opportunity […]

I try out the new #BrewFood menu at Beerhouse

For beer lovers, there really isn’t a better place than Beerhouse on Long Street as far as beer selection goes.  I mean, they literally have 99 bottles of beer on the wall (and 25 on tap).  What’s not to love about that?

But they recently also decided to up their game on the food front […]
