Eat This #1: Creamy Seasonal Mushrooms on Toast with Parmesan

I’m starting something new on the food front over here. Sometimes I just want to tell you about something so insanely delicious that it immediately goes on my mental list of “I-have-to-come-back-here-asap-&-get a whole-lot-more-of this-stuff” as soon as I’m a few bites in. And by the end of the meal it takes a good amount of

You need to eat this & asap

This isn’t a restaurant review. I just really wanted to tell you to go and order this meal as a matter of urgency… Salvation Cafe’s 5 spice calamari (R89) is out. Of. This. World. I’ve been there plenty over the years, you probably have too. I usually go for breakfast which they’re well known for but one

Great Eastern Food Bar – everything Asian food should be…

So Saturday’s surprise date night turned out to be quite something. I’d walked pass Grand Eastern Food Bar (above Service Station in the Bamboo Centre, Melville) plenty, sometime curiously but never curiously enough to check it out I guess. I expected it to be ok, but nothing special so forgive the sparse, fuzzy pics

The One & Only’s Nobu

I haven’t done a food post in so long you’d be forgiven if you thought I’d stopped eating. As if! Another quite overdue post, yup it’s been a while since we visited Nobu at the One & Only but this is a post that had to be written. Now the night before we went

Pot Luck Club – the best meal of my life…

It’s been quite a while since I started writing this post. Weeks actually. I thought carefully about this post’s title. I didn’t want to overstate it but I need you to know its all true. With Ramadaan over it’s finally safe to look at these food pics again without it feeling like utter torture…

Loving La Luna

La Luna‘s food really doesn’t need any help, but what endears this place even more is it’s come back story and we all love a come back kid. And the story goes that The Westcliff shut its doors last year for renovations (they’re soon to be SA’s first Four Seasons Hotel) and let the staff go. Fast forward to

My top 6 breakfasts in Jozi

I’m one of those people who doesn’t eat bacon. Ever. Not even a taste. Yes really. And no I’ve never wondered what it tastes like… I also can’t really eat any of the sausages etc. that get served up with traditional breakfasts either (since its not halaal). Oh & I also don’t like sweet breakfasts

Burhan’s Butcher and Kebab- why didnt anyone tell me?!

I sometimes feel bad that I’m not often/easily blown away by food and then I find a place like Burhan’s Butcher and Kebab shop and I remember why I have standards! The credit for finding this one goes to the hubby – think he read about it in House & Leisure, so one Saturday

five hundred at the Saxon Hotel – Jozi’s gem…

So after an incredibly decadent surprise day at the Saxon’s spa I was still revelling in it all in the car park, ready to leave when the hubby drops another surprise: we were staying for dinner at the Saxon’s acclaimed five hundred restaurant. Dumbfounded, I dumped all my spa bag in the boot and we were whisked back

Cornuti – an Italian neighbourhood spot

If you’re after a cosy Italian place that’s authentic, Cornuti’s it. They’re on Oxford Road, Illovo but tucked away from the chaos of the street… It’s a cosy place that opens up onto the pavement but we were there on a chilly night so we huddled inside (PS sorry about these pics – you guessed

Parkhurst’s loss – The Leopard

If I have to equate Melville to a suburb in Cape Town, no doubt it has to be Obs. It’s got that same hippy-ness about it. Basically, I’m not cool enough to be there. One Friday night I ventured over anyway. If you need a reason, The Leopard‘s it. With roots in starting in

Calisto’s – budget seafood that’s everything but!

Calisto’s, a Portugeuse joint is definitely a well-kept secret unless you frequent the South of Joburg. Confess  – unless you live/work out that way you probably don’t. That’s how I came across them myself a few years back – it was the venue for our office’s year-end function & I really didn’t have the foggiest

Level Four Restaurant at 54 on Bath

Let me start by saying I have at least 2 dozen (maybe 3!) foodie posts outstanding & I’ll be getting them up as fast as I possibly can. The fact that I can’t blog as fast as I eat is a very real problem 🙂 We had some celebrating to do and after some research

The Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa – almost but not quite…

We had some celebrating to do recently when just as I was about to leave the house for our dinner date, I got call to say I should pack an overnight bag 🙂 We weaved through Rivonia, Sandton, Morningside and as we got closer, I realised where we were spending the night: The Fairlawns

Is it Halaal? Are we adequately catering for the market in South Africa?

A few weeks ago, Ishay who runs Food and the Fabulous tweeted asking about experiences around halaal food in SA for a piece she was writing. I tweeted back and before I knew it I was writing her a long mail with my personal experiences frustrations on the matter. A few people have since seen

Where nature & luxury meet, Grootbos was born…

As a Capetonian, I thought I had pretty much at least heard about every nook & cranny of my province and that’s if I hadn’t been there already myself. And so yes, you guessed it, Grootbos  Private Nature Reserve was new to me and I hopped at the chance to experience it when they invited me recently.

The feast that was the DSTV Eat Out Awards…

Last year I sat in track pants on my couch and “watched” the Eat Out Awards unfold on Twitter. So you can understand this year it felt a tad surreal to be there. I got a single ticket so the hubby was less than enthused but I did offer to order him some room

Central One at The Radisson Blu Gautrain

I enjoyed a scrumptious meal at Central One recently as part of a Zomato Foodie meet up. It was the 1st time I’d been back at the restaurant in around 3 years and overall I was pleasantly surprised. We sat down to a 5 course tasting menu extracted from their standard al acarte menu. Unexpected

Zomato – a foodie app review

I heard about the Zomato app when it launched earlier this year but at the time I was feeling rather overwhelmed by social media (some days I still am!) & didn’t want another app. That said, I’ve since gotten into the app after a recent Zomato foodie meet up & found it to be more that I perceived. The

High Tea at The Saxon gets a make over

I know what you’re thinking – there was nothing wrong with High Tea at The Saxon right? I’ve been several times and even had one there for my kitchen tea when I got married and always thought it was pretty perfect. Well it’s gotten even better if you can imagine that… We were invited to

Win a decadent stay at The Maslow Hotel!

If you saw my recent post about my staycation at The Maslow Hotel Sunday before last you’ll know it was thoroughly luxurious. The good news is that The Maslow has offered to extend a stayover experience along with their Sunday Gourmet Braai to one of my readers (how lucky are you guys!). Here’s a taste of what you’re in for:
