Cape Town Hotspots: Where to try next?

Cape Town Hotspots: Where to try next?

So I’m sure you, dear reader, know that I make a point of eating at as many of Cape Town’s new hotspots as possible. Because I love food and wine and eating out, and because I justify my habit by calling it “work” or “research”. I’m quite into fine dining, so the surge of new […]
