I wanted to pick a restaurant with a bit of a different feel so off I went googling “beach restaurants” in PRETORIA, lol. There was Mozambik with lovely pictures of prawns and shrimp reminding me of the time I visited Mozambique with some friends and all we feasted on was sea fresh fish and prawns day and night. The mood was a bit disappointing as nothing pointed to the beach or gave off a fresh breeze that takes you back […]

Restaurant Week 2017 took place from 19 October to 5 November, opening up an assortment of high end restaurants to try out a set menu. Our options for the week were Carbon Bistro, Prosopa and SALT. My initial thought when I saw SALT’s menu was “Do I really want to spend a Friday night eating a cheese and meats platter?” So, I quickly changed my restaurant choice, but majority voted for it so there we were. Tucked away in Hazelwood amongst other […]

The first sign of desperation here is a congregation that follows a pastor named Pastor Revelations Bitchington Mboro – we would need another review to unpack that name alone. Frankly, we would need a separate review to discuss all the characters’ names in the book. By now it should come as no surprise that we are reviewing none other than Noviolet Bulawayo’s extraordinary childhood reflection, We Need New Names – because we do. In a book that documents a nation’s […]
Every month we try out a new restaurant. We choose a host and they give us three meticulously curated choices. Each person interested in joining in on the festivities then casts their vote; democracy at its finest. Now, I have my own unique way of deciding on a winner…the dessert menu. If your desserts don’t appeal, then I don’t want no meal. El Pistolero won me over with the Churros they had on their menu. What are Churros you ask? […]
Sometimes we encounter people whose personal style comes with a staple look or accessory that seemingly can’t be separated from their identity, be it scarves, rings, a striking lipstick or a classic cat eyeliner. For Roshantha, it’s her majestic earrings that define her personal style.
No one can say they remember every moment of their childhood but imagine not remembering the one moment that could have been responsible for steering your life in a completely different direction to the picture you have now. Maybe it wouldn’t but you don’t know that, all you know is that it could have.
Once every month we go out and eat. I would say it’s my favourite time of the month, but well I eat every day…multiple times a day. This event however is special. It’s a gathering of friends to celebrate a new month. We gather to celebrate receiving new money into our accounts. Mostly, it’s to try and enjoy that new money before adult problems come and eat away at it. Take me back to my care-free youth.
