Where Rhinos Picnic: Cape Town & the Winelands

Picnics

In my earliest picnic memories, light-haired limbs and blonde and brown ringlets roll over each other down endless grassy hills in bollemakiesie races. They flip upside down in handstands, curls washing the earth. Longer limbs chase us, dribbling a ball low across the field. Large hands take ours and lift us onto strong backs. And when […]

Top 5 Cape Town Restaurants & Bars 2014

It being 14 February, we dedicate this year’s foodie list to the romantics of the persistent kind. The crazy beautiful ones with enough staying power to watch The Notebook, Message in a Bottle and P.S I love you in one sitting. The consistently broken-hearted who are still pining for their ex, playing Adele’s ‘Someone I used […]

Drowning in Empanadas | The Horny Grazer Reviews Orinoco

orinocoheader

There’s a Spanish phrase that goes, “hoy por tí, mañana por mi” which loosely translates to “today you, tomorrow me”. It’s a great phrase which ‘justifies’ and promotes acts of kindness. I’ll do you this favour today because one day someone will do me a favour. I love the philosophy; acts of kindness breed more […]

The Best Coffee Shop in the World

Truth Be Told

We’d heard rumblings about a coffee shop down the road from our Rhino Africa headquarters. The Truth Coffee headquarters. Often these rumblings rise and spread like a twister through the city’s hipster waves only to fall in a matter of months. But this twister has only gained more force since its inception. We thought we’d […]

Horny Grazer Review: Kloof Street House

The mysterious Kloof Steet House

For quite some time I would peruse the restaurants on Cape Town’s Kloof Street looking for something to take my fancy. I always ended up at the same old places. Occasionally, we would pass one particular house – colonial, hidden behind gates, candles twinkling in the windows – and would walk on joking to each […]

Cape Town’s Unique Dining Experiences

Untitled-7 copy

The terms ‘pop-up’ restaurants and ‘underground dining’ have become more and more popular around the globe over the last decade, a trend that has now hit Cape Town. Pop-up restaurants are the circuses of the culinary world, popping up for one night only, disappearing in the blink of an eye, leaving guests astounded. It’s a […]

The White Room at Dear Me

Feature 2

White. That was all we saw – and really, what did we expect? It is called The White Room. Capetonians are good at sticking to their favourite spots, but this newcomer is creating waves. Usually not one for tasting menus, I tend to prefer restaurants that have an a la carte option, but the hype […]
