On this episode of ‘Restaurants I should’ve visited sooner because I live down the road’ is Angelo’s! This was just one of those restaurants I’d always pass by and promise to visit but never did, until now! Continue reading “Angelo’s.”
It’s been a crazy/uncertain past 2 months here, with the whole university situation. However in spite of everything, life goes on. I won’t dwell on the topic because that’d be a whole other post of it’s own. All I will say is that there are inequalities/problems in our society that we can’t continue to ignore. Growing pains of a nation. Something has to give for us to grow.
With all the demands one is faced as a student (just a human being in general tbh), sometimes all you need is a little pick-me-up to get you through the rest of the week. Continue reading “Seattle Coffee.”
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: restauranting should be an actual word, a verb. Is being a professional restaurateur a thing? It needs to be.
I love restaurants in general, but cafes/bakeries have a very special place in my heart. Continue reading “When in Walmer: Bocadillos”
Not too long ago, in celebration of my mom’s birthday (forever young that woman is) we went out to Old Austria. I hope to God that someday I’ll be earning enough money to be able to spoil my parents the way they do for my sister Gloria and I. I’ll repay the favour someday soon 🙈 Continue reading “Old Austria”
When the sun only makes rare appearances, you have to take full advantage of whenever (if ever) it does. Word on the street is that the Blue Waters Cafe is the restaurant with the best view in P.E. I’ll get back to you on that one once I’ve managed to grow wings and explore the city in it’s entirety hahaha,but as of now I would have to agree. Continue reading “Best view in the city?”
If there’s anyone who’s always clued up about the latest going-ons and popular restaurants in the neighbourhood, it’s my mom. When she first told me about Banneton, I was delighted to hear that it was a cafe-bakery. Nothing beats a nice warm pastry and a good cup of coffee (if you’re a coffee drinker that is, I’m personally not a fan of the bitter aftertaste, and always make a beeline for hot chocolate on restaurant menus). Banneton’s is relatively new to Walmer, Port Elizabeth so that explained why I’d never heard of it. Continue reading “My First Time at: Banneton Bakery & Cafe”
All those who are busy doing or have ever done A-levels know that the struggle is REAL. That is exactly the reason why despite living down the road to Mambo Italia, I only had the pleasure of visiting their Lavington branch almost a year after it opened. Continue reading “Restaurant review: Mambo Italia”
Ever tried finding a 3 year old in a crowded room? Your lost earrings under your bed covers? The right answer to a multiple choice question where EVERY SINGLE ANSWER sounds exactly the same? That’s what finding something special, new or different on the food market feels like, especially when it comes to a pastry as widespread and common as a doughnut. Continue reading “Mr Donut review”
Churro: A fried-dough pastry popular in countries such as France and Spain. When it first came to my knowledge that this treat was available in Nairobi KENYA as well, I swear the gates of heaven opened and light came streaming down around me as the angels sang. Gone were the days of longingly stalking food blogs on Tumblr and Instagram fantasizing about the day I’d (in 2 decades time when and if I managed to make enough money to traverse abroad and) find them. Continue reading “My first time: Trying churros”
