The Silo Hotel, is considered the pinnacle of 5-star hospitality in Cape Town – Justifiably so.
…but there are a few things found wanting, from my morning at The Willaston Bar.
Rocomamas is actually a pretty cool place for a solo visit.
I live for the Rockstar Burger & their Nutella Waffles.
I’m also keen for what Rocomamas Harrington, has in store for their Winter visitors.

Stay tuned to their social media, and you will be privy to specials & experiences exclusive to Rocomamas restaurant.

Recovery, for me, can take days.
Here are a few of my before, during and after Fashion Week necessities, starting with a lovely place named Romney Park…
Pintxos Bar makes a compelling argument on why you should never leave…
Over the last 3 years, I have experienced a fair few exquisite getaways scattered throughout the Cape region of South Africa specifically.
These hospitality offerings are, honestly, without reproach; guests left wanting for nothing (…except perhaps Netflix in some instances).
Vegans | Carnivores | Foodies of All sorts – Last years calories don’t count.
Tired of pushing through crowds around the Eiffel, or walking through the burning heat?
Chez Ribe is a convenient stop-over near the Invalides, where you can stay within your daily budget, with a value-for-money seated lunch somewhere cool, clean and interesting.
I may not have had a full meal here, but the dessert at Le Bistro Marbeuf, bears all the exemplary marks of an establishment unyielding in delivering foodie nirvana.
There have been wars waged over territory housing nectar of the gods. Blood spilled in the quest to own Mother Nature’s most inspired creations. Human’s lust for the finer things knows no bounds, which is evident in the modern landscape, sculpted intricately to showcase excess, mastery and delight. Cape Town has not remained untouched by…
“It all comes back to the basics. Serve customers the best-tasting food at a good value in a clean, comfortable restaurant, and they’ll keep coming back.” – Dave Thomas You could probably count, on one hand, the number of places you would willingly travel hours to, for a single meal.
