Hottest New Restaurant addition to Cape Town – Janse & Co

I have a new favourite restaurant in Cape Town!   Janse & Co literally blew my socks off!  It is quite simply beautiful.  My type of decor – clean, contemporary, dark, open, Asian inspired……..yet warm.   It is almost like a well choreographed play.   The attention to detail is seen in every aspect of this shop from the design to the menu, the open plan kitchens, the simple box with the cutlery and the beautifully plated food. It was one of the…
