Restaurant review: D6 – District Six Eatery

Modern chefs and food critics generally use the term ‘fusion’ to describe a late-20th century culinary phenomenon in which French cuisine was shocked out of its classical complacency by the addition of contrasting Asian ingredients. Popular usage notwithstanding, fusion food is not a contemporary creation. Many of the great ancient gastronomic genres blend diverse tastes […]

Restaurant review: Graciales

The dessert board at Graciales might come as a surprise: A rich, fresh chocolate truffle, a lemon tart boasting all the right contrasts and a Turkish Delight good enough to convert those of us who’d normally shun it. Why the surprise? Well, because Graciales markets itself as a casual place to socialize over a drink […]

Dax Villanueva: The Story of The Yellow Tin

If I mention the name Badenhorst, you probably think of Adi Badenhorst and AA Badenhorst Family Wines. Understandably so, as Badenhorst wines have developed quite a reputation and Adi himself is quite a character. But not many people know that just as the Badenhorst family has established itself as a significant player in the South […]

David Donde: How to make great-tasting coffee at home

I am often asked how to make great coffee at home. Well, actually, I am usually asked “Which (overpriced) espresso machine should I buy?”. Presumably one’s life is better and more fulfilled with a shiny, huge, dust-gathering and divorce-inducing, Eskom-load-shedding triggering geyser- filled contraption sitting on the kitchen counter. My answer is such devices are […]

Restaurant review: Ritrovo Ristorante

Fashion and proximity to where food critics live plays more of a role than it ought to in the awarding of prizes. There are some mediocre restaurants that turn up in the ‘best of’ lists year after year like bad pennies. And then there are some superb restaurants, like Ritrovo in Pretoria, that are consistently […]

Restaurant review: Open Door

On a dark night in early June, during loadshedding, a friend and I were accommodated at Open Door without a booking. I doubt we’ll be so lucky again. Open Door had only been open a matter of days when we visited. Word is sure to have got out by now about Neil Grant, Barry Engelbrecht […]

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 […]
