The Winter months are always tough on restaurants, as diners are not keen to leave their homes when it is cold and wet. With the reduced trade, added to Loadshedding, and the earlier Curfew start time, restaurants are keen to attract business by offering Winter specials.
I will compile an ongoing Restaurant Winter Specials list for Cape Town and Winelands Restaurants, updated regularly. I welcome all information about Winter Specials. Continue reading →
#Gratitude for a well organized day, using a do-list, ahead of the Easter weekend; for getting my work done in good time ahead of my client meeting; for a good cardio workout on my secret Bakoven walk before I left for town, receiving 300 Discovery points; for putting in petrol, using more than a tank of petrol this past month, fueling up at BP on Regent Road, with Oupa offering excellent service, not deserving this name in his youthful age; for dropping off my Bedlinen at the Laundry next door; for fetching my Dinkel poppyseed rolls; for collecting an order from Lazari in Gardens; for playing Ms Easter Bunny, hopping about town doing deliveries; for an unusual but good client status meeting at Utopia; for being proud of my self-love, in walking out of a tea/coffee meet with my longest standing friend, when she disparaged me and tried to play Taurus mother to me in telling me what to do – one such Taurean mother in a lifetime was enough!🥵; for a royal treat by Chef Judi Fourie of Pilcrow & Cleaver, offering me a glass of Mooiplaas vino, with which I ordered a cheese board, with Brie, figs and unusual cumin shortbread 💙🙏; for a weird relaunch of Infusions on Long, each tapas dish containing cannabis 😱, for a lovely letting-go walk on the Mouille Point Promenade; for Minsky waiting for me at the door when I got home; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
On Monday 30 June restaurants were allowed to reopen for Sit-Down Service, after having only been allowed to offer a Food Delivery service from May, and a Food and Alcohol Delivery and Collection Service from June onwards.
Last week I posted a List of Restaurants offering a Sit-Down Service, in addition to the Facebook Group which I created of Restaurants offering Food and Alcohol Delivery and Collection. The List I posted had over 100 restaurants. I have been updating the List, and am posting an update today, with 315 restaurants on the updated List.
The majority of restaurants offering a Sit-Down service will continue offering a Food and Alcohol Delivery and/or Collection Service. Continue reading →
