It’s all Greek to me! - Marika's Restaurant - Part 3

June 14, 2018

One thing that Marika’s has that really sets it apart is an ambience, a relaxed, urban/ hole-in-the-wall feel with laid-back staff and a killer menu. The venue is small, seating between 40-50 guests at a time (with al fresco balcony seating available barring inclement weather).

Straight to the mains (this restaurant does amazing Meze too, of course), the Arni Mbrizoles (finely cut lamb chops) are melt-in-your-mouth good, also the Garides Sti Schara (grilled butterflied prawns) or the Garides Yiouvetsir (baked prawns, kritharaki, tomato and feta) will satisfy any seafood urges you may experience. 

Genuine and wholesome, relaxed and relaxing.

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!

It’s all Greek to me! - Greek Fisherman - Part 1

June 12, 2018

The Greek Fisherman is located in the V&A Waterfront, centrally situated and with beautiful views of the working harbour. They offer traditional Greek and mediterranean cuisine with a modern twist.

As is to be expected the Meze and Tapas is designed to be shared and enjoyed together. Try the Soudzoukakia Grecque, beautiful meat rizoles with pomodoro sauce and cumin. 

For mains, we can highly recommend the Roast Lamb, slow oven-roasted on the bone and with tzatziki, really lemony and succulent. 

For desert go for the chocolate hazelnut Baklava, indulgent, rich and more-ish.

Καλή όρεξη!

Royale Eatery

May 17, 2018

No run-down of burger joints in Cape Town would be complete without mentioning Royale. Royale was hipster before hipsters started calling themselves hipsters.  The decor, the staff and the food all have a special quality, something different and interesting. 

Take the menu, for instance, there is literally a section titled “Something a little different” 😊. From there we chose The Federale, a 160g basted beef patty blended with chorizo, chilies and coriander, served with guacamole and caramelized onions. Each burger comes with a choice of fries or sweet potato fries or a mix of both (recommended).  

Always an experience, Royale never fails to deliver!
