CAPE TOWN EATS – OUR 2020 FOODIE ACTIVIST INITIATIVES OVER LOCK DOWN

The Corona pandemic resulted in most of Cape Town’s food vendors being shut down completely.   In other parts of the world restaurants were mostly able to do food deliveries over the strict lock down periods,   we were not even allowed to sell hot pies! Recently restaurants (& food vendors) could chose to open if they were able to do deliveries.  In the next phase they were allowed food collection from their stores/homes.  The latest addition is that they were finally…

Happy Days at The Flagship – a tribute to the founder Chef Bruce Robertson

Happy Days at The Flagship – a tribute to the founder Chef Bruce Robertson

Sadly the Flagship has closed down – but I will leave this blog here as a tribute to my friend and favourite Chef ever – Bruce Robertson. It all started with an email saying that top South African Chef Bruce Robertson was launching a Table D’Hote in his home in Scarborough.  I googled it and found it was a dine at home concept – so I interpreted it as a dine at home restaurant and immediately released a blog saying…

Quirky new restaurants in Cape Town – The South China Dim Sum Bar in Long Street

It is such exciting times – Cape Town has its first Dim Sum Bar!!  Quirky!! Seriously quirky.

The Kitchen and a creative revolution in Woodstock Cape Town

The Kitchen and a creative revolution in Woodstock Cape Town

Every time I blink, something new opens in Woodstock, a somewhat grungy suburb in Cape Town.  It all seems to have started with the renovation of an old biscuit mill building into a creative/arty small funky shopping centre.  Woodstock boasts some beautiful architecture – which over the years has been allowed to run down as the areas property prices remained depressed.   The opening of the Biscuit Mill shopping centre and the start of the Fresh Goods Market (Cape Town’s…

Kalk Bay – my favourite village in Cape Town

Kalk Bay – my favourite village in Cape Town

I love Kalk Bay for so many reasons, that I return and return and return to explore, eat and play.  Kalk Bay is quirky, arty, grungy at times, always eccentric and quite simply a fun place to ramble around, to sit and drink coffee, to chat to the locals, to people watch and to buy and eat the freshest fish in Cape Town.   The focal point of the village is the local fishing harbour.  This is the last community…

Cafe Paradiso is fabulous again! Great courtyard for relaxing and kids cooking/entertainment

Cafe Paradiso is fabulous again! Great courtyard for relaxing and kids cooking/entertainment

Cafe Paradiso used to be one of my absolute favourite spots in Cape Town.  We used to spend many many afternoons there relaxing and getting a little intoxicated in the sunshine.  This spot had a magical combination of a large outside area, lovely buzzy setting and fairly good food.  It was sold and rapidly the food went downhill and so did the service.  I had two bad experiences and had not been back there for at least 3 years.  …
