Restaurant Review: The Chinese Dumpling Shop

This is a review of a restaurant that has no agreed-upon English name. The staff speaks very little English. It’s a restaurant that requires you to wander into the kitchen at the back to help yourself from a fridge of drinks. At the entrance, there’s a large metal bowl of cracked eggs, a bunch of […]

Restaurant review: Cornucopia

There is no obvious association between lentils and the Dunkeld shopping centre in Johannesburg. Generally this suburban arcade offers old money, posh nosh at inflated prices. It is home to the multi-award winning DW 11-13 and croissant sellers abound. It is the sort of spot where ladies who lunch lunch. And they tend not to […]

Restaurant review: Thava and Taste of Punjab

I ate in two Johannesburg Indian restaurants last week. Neither was perfect but then life seldom is. My first eating experience was a lunch at Thava in Norwood. Thava is a modern restaurant with flattering lighting, a cosmopolitan clientele and minimalist chic décor. The culinary concept is South Indian Keralan cuisine meets small plates/ tapas. […]

Restaurant review: Myoga

Overall, the food at Myoga is perfectly yummy, few would argue with that. It’s just that, when you’re having a five-course tasting menu prepared by Chef Mike Bassett, you want to be blown away. I wasn’t. I thought the food was inconsistent. Some of it was outstanding – the coconut-smoked cucumber served with the kabeljou, […]

Restaurant review: African Swiss Restaurant

As temperatures drop and immune systems buckle into sore throat season, food that soothes and insulates seems increasingly appealing. At such times, there is nothing nicer than scooping up soft, bubbly cheese with hunks of crisp-crusted bread. It is not just the taste and texture of a cheese fondue that appeals. There is emotional warmth […]

Restaurant review: Oroboros Tapas Bar

Restaurants are not just about food. Good food can be ruined by bad service – if I’m treated badly, I’m never coming back – similarly bad food can be redeemed by a feel-good experience. At Oroboros Tapas Bar the food isn’t terrible. The potential for feel-good, however, is excellent. Oroboros squeezes into a small space […]

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 […]
