  • Blind Wine Tasting Evenings with Top 12 Wines and The 41

    I’m the kinda guy who always gets a bit intimidated when it comes to wine tasting. My knowledge doesn’t stretch very far and I don’t want to make a complete fool out of myself. The one thing that always bugs me when wine tasting with a bigger group, is that’s there’s usually that one person […] More

  • Ginja Review

      Set between the Waterfront and the harbour, with lovely views but far enough away from all the shoppers, Ginja has a hip, contemporary design, with a deliciously wholesome menu. They really have kept things simple. They don’t do starters, there are some lighter meals like salads, wraps and sandwiches, and a few key mains and desserts […] More

  • The Sleek and Sophisticated Burger & Lobster Review

    Burger & Lobster is famous for… well… burgers and lobsters. Who’d have guessed it? Don’t get me wrong, their burger and the lobster is delicious and I will get to that later, BUT OH MY WORD THE BRIOCHE IT IS SERVED ON IS MINDBLOWINGLY DIVINE. Just needed to get that out of the way quickly, so […] More

  • Con Brio Bistro Review

    I’ve said it before and I will say it again – I’m a food sharer. There’s nothing better than ordering EVERYTHING and sharing it. Why? No orderers regrets. No missed opportunities. Happy Kayli. But quite often tapas style can also mean: expensive + small portions = Sad Kayli. But not Con Brio Bistro, a little gem in […] More

  • Manga Mouille Point Review

    If there is a word in the world gets me excited, it’s… and yes, this is SFW, “snacks”. Hotdaym do I love a snack. Why? You can get a whole bunch and you can share, which means that you can taste everything. Best life ever. So when I saw that Manga in Mouille Point had […] More

  • SHEGO Middle Eastern Food Green Point review

    I love me some Middle Eastern food. So when I find an authentic restaurant, you can imagine my happiness. And that is exactly what happened when I stumbled upon SHEGO on Main Road, Green Point. The Turkish owners focus on… you guessed it, Turkish cuisine. But don’t go there expecting cut glass lights, bells, gold trimmings and jewel-toned […] More

  • An Evening of Italian Cuisine at Meloncino

    We’ve been to Meloncino quite a lot recently. A few months ago we had what Kayli called, “an av meal”. Since then we have both been again separately, and both times it has been delicious! People tend to forget that there are humans behind the scenes and that sometimes people have a bad day and sometimes […] More

  • Bay Harbour Market Hout Bay review

    The problem with a lot of the markets out there, is that they feel copy and paste. You seen one, you seen ’em all. Boring. Maybe it’s because they’ve been around a while; maybe it’s because they have food, music, clothing, homeware and more; maybe because they are run by magical people – I dunno. But […] More

  • Lust Bistro & Bakery on the Vrede en Lust Estate Review

    I’ve lived in Cape Town for nine years, and ’til this day, I am still blown away by how diverse the region is. A short 45 minute drive can take you from the city, to the farmlands, to quaint seaside towns, and everything in between. We were invited for lunch at Lust (pronounced Lhoost, not as […] More

  • The Deckhouse Crab Shack and BBQ Review

    Stop what you’re doing. Get up. Get into your car (or on your bike, this is Cape Town after all) and drive to Kloof Street. Find a parking anywhere because those don’t come easily. And walk toward The Deckhouse Crabshack and BBQ. Get a table. Sit down. And order the Shrimp Popcorn. Not my usual […] More
