Art and Tarts - Vovo Telo- Part 3

April 12, 2018

Named after a hotel in Madagascar that the owners were staying at when they fell in love with the idea of artisanal bread and baking, this is a true gem in the crown of the V&A and worth spending some serious time in!

Priding themselves on making everything from scratch, Vovo Telo has no shortage of amazing offerings. From buttery freshly made croissants to Pain au Chocolate to lemon meringue tartlets to muffins to cupcakes and every type of bread under the sun.

If it’s a carb day, head on over! 😊

Food with a view! - Maestro's on The Beach - Part 3

April 06, 2018

Milnerton gives you the view of Table Mountain that you know from the postcards. 

This unforgettable vista is accompanied by a vast and exceptional menu and an amazing spacious deck to enjoy it all on. 

For starters there are several delicious options which include snails in garlic butter and chicken or beef trinchado.

The seafood is outstanding, we highly recommend a platter with Kingklip, butterfly grilled tiger prawns, tuna steaks, calamari, mussels in a white wine and garlic sauce and beer battered Hake. It’s a bit of everything and really shows off the chef’s skills.

Perfect for sundowners, with great cocktails too!

April 05, 2018

The West Coast has a rough beauty to it, long beaches, choppy seas and endless views. 

Ons Huisie celebrates the West Coast “Kos” (afr. food) culture through simple, almost rustic dishes prepared with love and plenty, simplicity and creativity.  

Try the Harlem long linefish, the catch of the day served with creamy herb mash, seasonal vegetables and smothered in lemon cream. Alternatively, treat yourself to oven baked snoek with an apricot and butter sauce, you can’t go wrong. 

For dessert, have the souskluitjies, traditional steamed dumplings with cinnamon and custard, pure heaven.

You had me at Pizza <3 - Hail Pizza - Part 3

March 23, 2018

Hail Pizza has the coolest sounding name of our Trio of Pizzerias this week, and the clean open space, with long tables that encourage shared meals, it’s also a great venue to simply be “in”. 

They focus on fresh wood-fired pizza, cold beer, fresh oysters, salads and brunch cocktails. Slaves to flavour, their simple menu is full of it. 

Munch down on a El Pepperoni, as the name suggests, laden with Pepperoni, mushrooms, red onion and fresh coriander, a thin crispy base, a cold beer, and a beautiful ambience.

You had me at Pizza <3 - Pizza at Burrata - Part 1

March 20, 2018

Pizza at Burrata is situated at the iconic and hipster-chic Old Biscuit Mill. 

The interior is reminiscent of the trendy restaurants found in the New York Meat Packing District with the amazing centerpiece being a hand-built pizza oven from Naples (able to reach 480° Celsius and bake a perfect Pizza in 90 seconds). 

It certainly helps that the co-owner Neil Grant is an internationally acclaimed sommelier, this reflects in the thoughtfully selected wine list. 

Try the Vacca Sacra - Pizza Bianca, delicious mozzarella, parmesan, garlic, delicate beef carpaccio, fresh rocket and a refined balsamic reduction, beautiful!
