Flames at Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff – restaurant review

Eating the occasional not-very-good meal is an occupational hazard of being a food writer. As occupational hazards go, there are worse ways to earn a crust. Mostly I ignore disappointing dinners and focus instead on the many more interesting offerings out there.  It is the combination of poor food and eye-wateringly expensive prices that stirs […]

Takumi – restaurant review

There was a time when sushi lovers flocked to Minato, just off Cape Town’s Long Street. With a tattoo parlour as a neighbour, tacky décor and a ramshackle front, it was the definition of ‘hole in a wall’. But the sushi was legendary and night after night it was packed to capacity. Hatsushiro Muraoka, better […]

The Pot Luck Club – restaurant review

At the risk of sounding like a Dale-Roberts groupie, I’d call the meal I ate at The Pot Luck Club faultless. Every dish was unique and every aspect of every dish was technically perfect. That’s pretty impressive considering we had at least 12 plates of food between four of us. The smoked pork belly (with […]

Cosy Corner – restaurant review

I have never had a salomie so generous. I could hardly get my hand around it, such was the girth of this famous curry roll from Cosy Corner in Lower Wynberg. And it was delicious. The potato in the curry was miraculously tender: no flouriness, no glassiness. It held together perfectly. The lamb – huge […]

Dollhouse – restaurant review

Anyone who grew up in Johannesburg (or, as in my case, wishes that they did) has a Dollhouse memory. The origins of this iconic Highland’s North roadhouse are unclear but there are photographs of the venue (complete with moving waiters looking blurred and ghost-like in the long exposure) dating back to 1940 – so, that’s […]

Kyoto Garden Sushi – restaurant review

Kyoto Garden Sushi has been having a good month. Four weeks ago it was rated five stars by Rossouw’s South African Restaurant Guide. This week, Eat Out voted Kyoto Garden SA’s Top Asian restaurant. Not bad for a gently-lit restaurant in a side street with a vibe that tends to quiet, not grandiosity. The sign […]

[spasie] – restaurant review

I’ve never thought much of long-table restaurants. Nor am I a fan of drinking wine out of tumblers. Innovative, hipster, trendy… whatever you want to call either fad, I prefer the privacy of a table for two, the absence of small talk and the elegance of long-stemmed glassware. Then I heard of [spasie]. I was […]

The Olive Shed Bistro – restaurant review

Mkholo is an organic olive farm and oil press on the outer edge of Hartbeespoort (about 40 minutes from Johannesburg). Rows and rows of silver-green Mission and Frantoio trees shelter against the majestic Magaliesberg mountains. There is a popular perception that South African olive growing is an entirely Cape concern but summer rainfall and semi-dolomite […]
