BAPS Shayona – restaurant review

Who wouldn’t love this jalebi? It’s a neat, palm-sized spiral of orange stickiness. It was made by drawing a circle in hot oil, then dunking the deep-fried wheel into fragrant syrup. It’s similar to our plaited koeksister, but much less of a mouthful. The whorl of a jalebi is not doughy. The circles are designed […]

Mexican Fresh vs Perron – restaurant review

Tex-Mex is a term that was first used in the late 19th century to describe the route of a cross border railway line. It wasn’t applied to food until 1918 when Miguel Martinez chef-patron of the Dallas restaurant, El Fenix, created a set of anglo-Mexican fusion recipes in an attempt to appeal to the Texan […]

David Donde: Instant coffee be damned

I am reading one of the most inspiring books of my entire life right now. The Slow Fix by Carl Honoré. Fitting I guess as I pen a piece on instant coffee. As Honoré points out, we live in a world addicted to speed. Captivated by the quick and easy. Instant coffee seems a very […]

Bocca – restaurant review

The zucchini fries at Bocca are unmissable. They are cut like skinny chips, but tend to flop modestly. This is not a starchy, upright chip – all brisk posture and uniform texture. With their melting centres and tempura-type coating, these veggie fries offer light crunch and a fresh but velvety filling. The accompanying herb mayonnaise […]

The Carnivore – restaurant review

The Carnivore is the sort of restaurant that seems to exist solely to be photographed for in-flight magazines. It presents a portrait of Africa that those of us who live here do not recognise. This is either a strength or weakness depending on one’s point of view. My seven-year-old son got a great school report […]

Pesce Azzurro – restaurant review

It bodes well when most of the patrons in the restaurant are speaking Italian. At the big table in the corner are a trio of magnificently groomed Italian men. Over there are another three Italian men, younger, with fewer pairs of designer spectacles between them. Between the pillar and the wall, three Italian women have […]

David Donde: The world’s most expensive coffees

Over-priced, expensive or good value for money? As the price goes up the question becomes more relevant. Am I paying a premium for quality? Am I buying geekery? Or am I a victim of good ol’ Snake Oil shenanigans? Coffee enthusiasts have a bucket list. Those coffees that need to get sampled during this lifetime. […]
