Valentines day without the boys – perfect! Truth be told all I needed to hear was chocolate & the mention of the swanky venue that is the Fairlawns Boutique Hotel. Should be a goodie!
Strolling down Long Street in Cape Town while on holiday recently we found ourselves outside Masala Dosa suddenly remembering it’d been on our to-do list (but forgotten) for some time. Of course being there & then right that second was a sign from a higher power. I didn’t think we should argue so we settled into
All ice cream is not created equal. It’s really that simple. Let me start by saying that I can’t believe that I’m writing a post about ice cream. But the world needs to know… Somehow & somewhere along the line (Twitter me thinks) I came across The Ice Cream King as he calls himself,
Though I get to go back to Cape Town often, I’m always amazed how much changes in my little (ok, not so little) city between my trips. It’s great that there’s always something new to come back to & look forward to each & every time. The challenge of course (& I’m always up for
Before we set off for the holidays we made a turn at The Foundry (aka Foundry Cafe) to see what all the fuss was about. Rave reviews were abound so my expectations were already quite high & we were not disappointed in the least.

And when you’re done your heart feels full to the brim. Call me dramatic, but that’s exactly how I
If you’re heading to Cape Town Slaapstad for the holidays here’s something to add to your to-do list on a Saturday morning. Brought to you by the same folks who do Jozi’s Neighbourgoods Market, the Old Biscuit Mill is much the same but different… More outdoorsy with a wider selection of goods, the Old

On Thursday afternoon I trotted along to the Tastes of Maboneng where an entire street in the middle of the city had been closed off so that we could well, feast ! Forget any “Tastes of” events that you’ve been to. This street banquet was hosted by all 12 of the restaurants that are now

In Jozi Hyde Park Corner is my favourite mall of them all. Never too full, a good selection of stores (though I miss Stuttafords) & great eating options. While many ‘trendy’ restaurants have opened in the mall over the last while, one that could easily be overlooked at your own risk is JB Rivers. The vibe at
