Woodstock Grill & Tap – Woodstock

Our latest foray into the wonderful domain of Cape Towns’ burger and craft beer offerings took us to the rejuvenated suburb of Woodstock. Situated in Albert Rd, Woodstock Brewery is home to Woodstock Grill & Tap. Having firmly established themselves as a serious player in the local craft beer industry, we were hopeful that the...

Jakes on the Common – Noordhoek

After what has seemed like an age, the bru’s of Burger Brews were back doing what we do best – eating burgers, drinking beers, and then telling you what we think! This time, at the behest of one of the bru’s who lives in Noordhoek, we made the trek into the deep south and visited...

Pirates

Anybody who grew up in the southern suburbs will know of Pirates – either as a restaurant renowned for their steaks and live music, or as the bar that one ends up at when all other venues in the area have closed, or as both. Either way, they are definitely doing something right, as longevity…

The Eatery Wood Fired Grill

Banana Jam Café

We visited this Caribbean-themed Kenilworth institution on a stormy summer’s night. Unfortunately, one of our foursome was struck down during the day with a terrible case of IdontknowwhatthehellhitmebutIammandown-ilitis and was unable to join us. He did, however, manage to book us an outside table on the only night Cape Town has seen rain in an…
