Finding Fish Finder

What’s up with Port Elizabeth and her schizophrenic weather disorder? Do these sporadic shifts in climate affect the way we eat? Probably. I don’t know. Either way, Winter is alleged to be on its way out to make room for Spring, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s difficult to be productive when the cold has…

5 Specials To Make PE Mondays Tastier

I read a quote recently which  I somewhat do not agree with. It goes something like: “Mondays don’t suck, your life sucks.” Wrong. Neither of those two suck. Granted, life can have its moments of overwhelming suckery. And Mondays, well let’s not go there. But, Mondays sometimes do have their silver linings. Because of this…

A Night at Tilting Heads

Ah, Stanley Street. What a real bag of gems this street is. I mean, how many times have you made plans to have a meal at Stanley Street with friends, only to spend a substantial portion of time arguing over which restaurant to visit? One time, I even gave up and went straight to Burger…

The One & Only Ganache

Look, you’re likely going to be jealous of my job after reading this. You’re only human, I get it. I can imagine it can’t be easy hearing about such decadence without any of it nearby. That’s okay, there’s a solution to that problem. I’ll tell you about it later.  We recently had the opportunity of…

We Love Todos Locos

The past eight years have seen substantial growth, rejuvenation and creativity blossom in a part of Port Elizabeth that, as hindsight reveals, has turned out to be a true diamond in the proverbial rough. The Richmond Hill area now carries connotations of a cosmopolitan aesthetic wherein a good, safe time can be had as well…

Trucking Good Food

Let’s face it, there aren’t that many places in PE for cool kids, foodies and hipsters (and their parents, actually) to go to stuff their faces, hang out and pretend they have better things to do. Yes, there are a few markets all over at different times of the month, but the whole “market” setup…

Copper Cafe

Sometimes, you find an absolute gem of spot in the most unexpected of places. The kind of place you’re torn between keeping to yourself or sharing with complete strangers on the internet. I guess I’m doing the latter right now, aren’t I? You’re welcome. Copper Cafe is a new little place almost hidden away in…

Plettenberg Bay Wine Weekend

There’s nothing better than being a tourist in your own country. If anything goes wrong, mum isn’t too far away to swoop in and fix things. In all seriousness, you’d be surprised how many beautiful places there are to discover right on your doorstep. For instance, did you know that there are quite a large…

Yes Please, Foo Jiu Sushi

There’s been a huge increase in the popularity of sushi in the past couple of years. It’s gone from being mainly enjoyed by pretentious Americans to becoming a favourite of even the most unadventurous of foodies. We can’t really explain why we even like sushi, we just do. It’s inexplicably tasty, and if you don’t…

Valley Market Favourites

We sure do have a lot of markets for such a small city. It’s not a bad thing, to be honest. When it comes to good food, there is literally no such thing as being too spoiled for choice. In the past few years, we’ve seen a steady rise in the popularity of artisanal goods….

Royal St. Andrews Hotel Weekend

It’s difficult to write this without shedding a tear. I’ve tasted luxury, and now these 2-minute noodles will never taste the same again. On the other hand, I’m so glad to have had the chance to experience the beauty that is the Royal St. Andrews Hotel. We were invited to the launch of their new…

Oh Hello, Vovo Telo

When the sun’s at its highest and your stomach’s at its emptiest, your mind can get a tad fuzzy. What do you eat? Where do you eat? What year is it? Lunchtime always comes out of nowhere and shakes you up a bit. In Port Elizabeth, we fortunately have a wide variety of choices when…
