Cape Town Foodie Escapades: The Shortmarket Club Review

It’s Winter Menu-Palooza in the Mother City right now. In the grand style of major cities around the world, winter and the fall season mean chefs rolling out Prix Fixe – or “fixed price” – menus. In Cape Town, every restaurant, bistro and cafe, is thirsty for your money and company. With so many eateries aspiring…

May Day! May Day! It’s a new month, and with it comes new lifestyle adventures. This post serves to notify all readers to a solid dining option in Cape Town, this new month. Amid my relaxing weekend at the hidden O on Kloof Boutique Hotel & Spa in the city, I pushed myself to venture…

Cape Town foodie escapades: One Star House Party Review

You’ll probably never get to experience this dining journey, unless you travel the far regions of the world with this team. One Star House Party is an organized group of ‘categorically homeless’ chefs, who travel the world, with suitcases filled with pots, blenders and pans, on one basic premise: 20 restaurants in 20 countries in…

Cape Town foodie escapades: CHEFS Cape Town Review

Getting a moment to escape the stifling office environment during the week, is always a treat for my poor vibrant soul. Yesterday I hightailed it out of my office during my lunch break; and took a walk from the central business district of Cape Town, to the somewhat chilled atmosphere of Gardens. Side-stepping afternoon peak…

Cape Town foodie escapades: Dapper Coffee Co. Review

I’m sure you’ve seen my foodie escapades focused more on nightlife dining, but I like to switch it up. Today’s Cape Town foodie escapade took me for a lunch break at the corner of Strand & Bree Street, in the Cape Town central business district. Attracting the gaze of any passer-by, is a counterpoised establishment,…

Cape Town foodie escapades: Raya Kitchen Review

Let’s keep this simple from the start: Raya Kitchen does its duty as a contributor to world-renowned fine dining experiences. What follows that summation, will pretty much be me assessing my dining experience through the fine haze of foodie contentment, and sleepiness. It likely comes as a surprise to most – unfamiliar with South Africa…

Cape Town foodie escapades: Richards Review

Located at the corner of Glengariff and Main Road Sea Point, Cape Town, is a theatre venue known as Richards Supper & Bistro. I got invited for a night dedicated to a spectacle. When I arrived, I walked on through upstairs to their Supper Stage, which is predicated on transporting both local and international guests “into…

Burn the Floor: A Dance Production Review…with wine!

Be still my pop culture heart! I’ve seen similar dance productions played through my TV screen in some of my favorite movies and television shows, and figured I’d get my chance to experience the spectacles once I’d touched down in New York, and experienced the marvels of Broadway like a true tourist. The first and…

Dining Review: The Famous Butchers Grill

Welcome to a brief review of a most horrendous dining experience. My friends and I chose to dine at an ill-named restaurant called “The Famous Butchers Grill” in Cape Town yesterday night. Obviously we had thee highest of expectations regarding the grill, considering the hype of its name…Boy!were we in for a surprise. I ordered a…

Turning up: The #InnerCityWineRoute Adventure 2.0

So the folks at Tuning the Vine couldn’t get enough of me, and the sentiment is shared. So I decided to brave the cobbled sidewalks of Cape Town’s CBD and experience the #InnerCityWineRoute once again – just to ensure my opinions weren’t a singularity. Splash PR gave Ollie the ticket hook-up …and when did I…

Tuning the Vine – #InnerCityWineRoute

It began with a conversation between my magazine editor and I. I have yet to acquire a taste for wine, but her niggling me, and my lack of anything at all to do that night led to us hightailing it to an event known as ‘Tuning the Vine‘. Okay, so basically what happens is this…

My festive so far

I’ve been enjoying vitamin D in abundance thanks to the sun shining through all the corners of Cape Town this December. I was invited to the Monkey Valley Resort in Noorthoek, to enjoy a Christmas with my extended family, and it was so much fun. I got the full experience of all the family feels,…

When your Neighbourhood is just so good

I’ve been hearing about the famed Neighbourgoods Market for ages, from friends, and social media alike. I woke up totally tired today, but strong-armed myself into getting up, and experiencing this ‘wonder’ of hipster proportions. Since I live in the vicinity, the logistics of savoring the Cape Town Saturday ambiance weren’t strenuous at all. The…

Honestly? I’m here for the chocolate

Mediterranean patio decor with a little rural Grecian rustic element – Hello ‘Honest Chocolate Cafe’! My body is pretty much the visual representation of how much I overindulge my decadent taste. I found Honest Chocolate cafe whilst taking a young walk down Wale street with my Simon&Mary hat protecting me from the sun, and needing…

Yum Sorbet colors my Ruff Tung

So what is a girl to do when she moves to the city, has no prospects, but has a substantial fashion & lifestyle network? There’s quite a lot to do. Sorbet Kenilworth/Ruff Tung Summer Event Co-designer of fashion brand Ruff Tung (dedicated to the plus size, and mothers trying to acquire taste) Bridget Pickering invited me…

What’s for Lunch: Yours Truly

While unashamedly marinating in the stereotype of a graduate spending hours on end parked in some dingy lit corner cafe, mainlining coffee and searching for jobs online, I decided to spend the last of my hoarded survival money on a hearty and healthy lunch. I usually pass by this shop whenever I roam Long Street,…

Hello from the Bay side

So I decided to brave the wave of early summer sweat-stained bodies and do some window shopping in Greenacres – a mall in Port Elizabeth currently undergoing a major facelift. Making itself known with loud, embarrassing and echoing wails, and gnawing contractions, my hungry tummy led me to a new establishment to get my grub…

What’s for breakfast? Amiamo

You cant fault me for indulging my taste-buds and tummy at every opportunity. I simply cannot be without a solid meal with lovely tastes working well to put me into a truly spectacular food coma. Today I had breakfast at Amiamo Cafe in Port Elizabeth, and while their menu may be short; they take no…

Turning 22 is actually just another day

So yeah, I was born at 00:05am on the 09th of June 1993 so today was my 22nd birthday. I haven’t celebrated my birthday normally for a while now, so having brunch or lunch is about as awesome as it gets…and that’s okay. Today I went to a restaurant with my mommy, right by the…

Lunch is served 2.0

Today I’m munching on a Roast Chicken and Salad wrap, served with a side of french fries. I’m at Cafe Amiamo again and I give this a solid 7/10 for fulfillment.

Nom Nom Nom: Lunch served

Celebrating getting my postgraduate results back and scoring a 70% on my thesis. Today I hit up the Woolworths Cafe and ordered a cup of Earl Grey Tea with a wrap made of Rotisserie Chicken with honey Mustard, mayonnaise and avocado. I rate it a 7/10. Quite lovely.

Lunch Amiamo

Had to get a new charger for my laptop and I’ve not been in the vicinity of unlimited WiFi for a while, so apologies for the mild blogging absence. Decided to treat myself to a day out at the mall. Watched a film at Ster Kinekor called “Seventh Son”. It rates a 3/10 but the casting gets a…

Curly Fries Vs. Pizza

 You know I have a hearty appetite right?  So since I started living in Cape Town I’ve been crazy for Curly Fries and Classic Mojitos. Neighborhood is one of the few places that make them, and make them well. It’s like an explosion of fatty goodness when you go in on a plate. The pictures…
