  • 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

  • Feeling right at Home at Steffanie’s Place

    When I was a kid, I’d play in the yard enjoying the last few rays of sunshine, before being ushered inside to a home-cooked meal with the family. Strangely enough, it’s very similar feeling when visiting Steffanie’s Place. The restaurant opens onto a beautiful patio boasting magnificent views of False Bay. We sipped on a drink until starters were […] More

  • Dine with a view at on19 at The Westin

    ON19 is on the 19th floor (believe it or not) of The Westin in Cape Town’s city centre. The view is ridiculous. And as you’ll soon see, the food is too… STARTERS Red Thai Duck Broth // 75 I am a big fan of ramen. It’s got that comforting thing going on, but is still […] More
