It’s all Greek to me! Mykonos Taverna - Part 2

June 13, 2018

Located in Sea Point, this restaurant has a marvelous history, and it is situated in almost the same spot on Sea Point Main Road where Dimitri's father also had a restaurant called Mykonos from 1976 to 1983. Dimitri Peroglou (Chef/Owner) learned from his father from age eighteen and has perfected numerous Greek dishes. His two most well known ones are the Kleftiko Lamb, and Dimitri's famous grilled lamb chops.

The Kleftiko lamb is deserving of its’ own paragraph. Slow roasted for 6 hours this lamb shank falls off the bone, it is succulent, cooked to perfection and a great reason to keep coming back!

Summer Sunsets - Summer Sunset Stroll - Part 3

November 30, 2017

Situated along the coast of the Atlantic Seaboard, the Sea Point Promenade is a stunning place to take a stroll, go for a jog or relax on a bench as you enjoy people watching and the sparkle on the ocean. 

The promenade starts in Mouille Point and runs all the way along to Sea Point. You can choose to walk the entire route or “dip” in and out of various sections. 

The route is lined with opportunities for more excitement, such as mini golf, ice cream, a tidal pool and a host of cafes and restaurants you’ll find along this stretch, all of it complemented by amazing views. 

The fresh sea air invigorating while the crash of the surf is incredibly calming, a gentle stroll along the promenade at dusk is a stunning way to end another beautiful day in Cape Town.

Some like it hot - Sundoo Restaurant - Part 1

October 31, 2017

These guys do some great Southern Indian food in the tapas style, designed to be shared and enjoyed in company. 

Sundoo is the creation of serial restaurateur and chef, Seelan Sundoo. The flavours are deeply founded in Kerala, India “The Land of Spices” a center for the trade in chili, cardamom, cloves and all manner of spices.

It is a tiny/intimate venue, seating forty in New York, deli-style booths, come early, they don’t do reservations here either (but they cater for 2 dinner sittings, the first at 18:30 and the second at 20:30).

From the clay oven, have the Cutta Kingklip, slow roasted with ginger, coriander and masala spice. 

Then, in terms of curry, we highly recommend the Anjuna prawn curry, with St.Lucia south coast school prawns, cooked in tomato, onion, fresh curry leaves, coriander, garlic, ginger and chili. A touch on the spicy side, but just right! 

Any spiciness can be easily remedied by a fantastically refreshing cucumber mint cooler, it’s perfect!

Deli’s, Diners and Drama - Kleinsky's Delicatessen - Part 1

April 25, 2017

If you imagine the quintessential New York style Deli, Kleinsky’s is the place you want you visit. We mentioned them before as a place to pick up some things for a picnic, but now we are going to look at this Deli as a place to come and enjoy a meal. 

A comfortable and inviting space in the heart of Sea Point known for its’ Jewish ancestry (which gives you an idea of what kind of treats to expect inside). The bagels are always fresh, the daily specials are on a chalk wall behind the counter, and they do an incredible spin on Eggs Benedict on potato latkes (a must try). 

Head up to the wood panel counter and place your order (a waiter will bring out the food when it’s prepared). We can highly recommend the sandwich and soup combo, tomato soup with a toasted cheese sandwich and caramelized leek dipping sandwich, also amazing is the lamb B.L.T. (kosher) lamb “bacon”, cos lettuce, tomato and mayo. 

Everything is always fresh, and freshly made, and owner/brothers Adam and Joel Klein have managed to create a space that is incredibly reminiscent of the Big Apple, from menu to décor, Kleinsky’s delivers.

Sweet treats and winter warmers - La Mouette Restaurant - Part 2

April 12, 2017

When Henry Vigar, and Mari Vermaak (now Vigar) decided to hand in their resignations and head to South Africa and partner up with their long-time friend Gerrit Bruwer to open a restaurant, it was a great day for cuisine in the Cape. 

Bringing together years of experience and finely honed skills (in Michelin starred kitchens and other top international venues), this threesome have brought their own spin on what it means to be nouvelle cuisine but paying respects to the seasonal varieties that the land provides.

La Mouette is situated in a beautiful Tudor house in Sea Point and has 2 floors, 4 dining rooms, 6 fireplaces, a bar / lounge area as well as a cobblestone courtyard outside. The menu is eclectic and beautifully presented, in either a 6 or 3 course set menu with one of the most astutely considerate wine lists and lovingly created pairing suggestions around, due to in-house expertise. 

Everything is amazing, but a stand-out dish is the chilled vichyssoise panna cotta, smoked leek, oil, leek ash and shoestring fries paired with a 2015 Vuurberg White Blend. Also amazing is the edible birds nest, crisp glass noodles, pickled mushrooms, liquid butternut and coconut with a 2014 Dorrance ‘Cuvée Anaïs’ Chardonnay. 

We must not forget that we came here for the desserts, and the menu is robust and innovative in this regard. Amongst the brilliant sweets and treats you’ll find deconstructed strawberry cheesecake, white chocolate and macha green tea macaroons, melting Ferrero rocher (salted hazelnut oil parfait, praline cremeux and chocolate sauce and black sesame cake (coconut sorbet, coconut mousse and passion fruit jelly). Try everything, and keep going back until you have, these guys know what they’re doing.

November 29, 2016

The twin influences of being a thriving international tourist destination and having a vast range of culinary cultural inspirations make Cape Town a haven for any foodie. Though the list of great dining experiences to be had is long, we have shortlisted several favorites based on flavor, ambience and location. 

Jarryds Espresso Bar + Eatery

If you are looking to start your day deliciously or recover from an exciting evening, there is breakfast and then there is breakfast at Jarryd’s. Jarryd’s source their ingredients, they don’t simply buy them. Their Fair Trade coffee is lovingly crafted at Espresso Lab in the Old Biscuit Mill, their milk is collected from a local dairy and for their bread (it’s heavenly) they have teamed up with Bentleys Bread Co. using only natural unbleached local stone ground flour. The attention to detail and the stringency applied to the quality of the ingredients reflects in the amazing spread that Jarryd’s offers. The toasted banana bread is a must have, also, the Jarryd’s Breakfast scramble, try the option with exotic mixed mushrooms, parmesan and truffle oil, you will not be disappointed. Alternatively the smoked salmon potato rosti stack with crushed buttery zesty peas, grilled zucchini ribbons, walnuts, caper berries, remoulade and a poached egg. The atmosphere is laid back, with a New York eatery flair, the staff are welcoming and attentive, and you you will often find the owner himself whipping up a round of coffees behind the espresso bar.
