Tiger’s Milk – restaurant review

Tiger’s Milk sets you agog from the get-go. There’s a vintage movie theatre sign at first floor level that transports you to the set of American Graffitti. It’s that movie – all style and intelligence – not Back to the Future or Grease. There’s an undercurrent of gloom in Muizenberg that prevents even a suburban […]

Saleh’s Bakery – restaurant review

I should know better, and in theory I do, but somehow I always forget about Fridays in Mayfair. Last week I did my usual stupid thing and arrived in this inner city, predominantly Muslim, Johannesburg suburb at about 11.45 on a Friday morning – just as all the shops and restaurants were closing for mid-day […]

Meat eating can be extremely destructive. The Take Extinction Off Your Plate campaign has expressed concern that global meat consumption is accelerating deforestation, drought, and other environmental crises. They argue that the livestock industry has driven many wild animals into extinction and that it is also responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than cars, trains […]

Dax Villanueva: Olive harvest 2015

Many small olive producers have already finished their olive harvest and the big producers should be a few weeks away from completing theirs. After a very low yielding harvest last year, the producers are pleased to see a much better harvest in 2015, although certainly nowhere near a record harvest. The olive harvest starts after […]

Reuben’s – restaurant review

When Reuben’s is the name of the restaurant, it’s ideal to have Reuben in the kitchen. I’ve eaten at Reuben’s in Franschhoek with Reuben Riffel present and with him absent. When he was there, the meal was worth every cent. When he wasn’t, his staff fell short of the name on the door. It’s a […]

Zhong Cuisine – restaurant review

Cheap sushi is a deeply dangerous global abomination. Most of the inexpensive sushi served in South Africa is a rolling insult to Japanese culinary culture. All those subtle, true and clean, complementary flavours that one ought to find are generally replaced with technically clumsy, clangingly unrefined tastes and textures. I have an Italian chef friend […]

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 […]
