Had a wonderful evening last night, sitting at the bar enjoying fresh sashimi, and chatting with the Itamae as he crafted his work. Had hot seafood dishes too, and the mussels in miso was a particular treat - enjoy!

There are plenty Japanese restaurants in Cape Town these days. Most are pretty ok. I've never been poisoned. So, for the casual tourist/Japanese food enthusiast, here are my top picks: 1 - Has to be Willoughbys in the Waterfront. Yes, it's in a mall but...More

I'm blown away every time I eat at Kyoto Garden. As a vegetarian I usually opt for my favourite - a simple plate of grilled mixed mushrooms with the most divine sauce, and the sushi garden plate. Delicate tender stem broccoli and spinach leaves on...More
