Restaurant Review – Rock Sushi Thai

I doubt there is anyone on this planet that loves Sushi more than I do… Well, Mikayla (my 4-year old) does and it works out great for me as I always use her as an excuse. She is also a great instigator and my husband can never say no to her! We have become regulars at Rock Sushi Thai in Meadowridge, Cape Town – it is convenient as it literally is just around the corner from our house and the food is so delicious! They also have decent sized portions at reasonable prices and the staff are always friendly and so patient with Mikayla (who insists on ordering her own ‘orange’ sushi and checking up on where it is every 5-minutes).

First of all, they do not have a kids menu. This will only work out well for you if your kids eat sushi or grown-up people Thai food. There is also a small little jungle gym outside the Meadowridge restaurant thanks to Col’ Cacchio for your kids to play on and the milkshakes are divine. Mikayla and I go on milkshake dates all the time after special events (ballet recitals, plays, school reports etc.) and these milkshakes are the real deal… Trust me. They are one of the few places that still use high quality full cream ice cream. There are only three falvours to choose from – chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. It is all you really need in life, to be honest. Okay, enough of the milkshakes (damn I want a milkshake now).

What Is At The End Of The Rainbow? *WIN* One Of 4 Prizes With RUBY Jewellery and Denise’s Delights To The Total Value of R2400

“Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true” – Lyman Frank Baum

What do you get when you combine a good dose of Caffeine, some Fairydust, a heavenly slice of rainbow cake and pots-of-gold jewelry? One ultra-special, yummy, sparkling giveaway!

To make this giveaway possible, I teamed up with Robyn & Janine – two fabulous sisters from Sea Point in Cape Town.Robyn embarked on her jewelry collection journey 13 years ago under the RUBY label and Janine is the inspired cake and cupcake supremo at Denise’s Delights – named after their mother. Family is best ♥

I have been coveting the Ruby collection for quite some time now and I love the high quality products. Ruby is an independent designer jewelry brand founded on the principles of ethical fashion. Ruby draws on the talents and skills of expert local silversmiths and gem artisans; as well as the traditional beading techniques of a township-based job creation initiative started by Ruby’s owner and designer, Robyn Lidsky. The Ruby collection has been carefully curated to reflect various colour palettes, rare metals, and semi-precious gems and crystals; and there are pieces suited to special occasions, a night out on the town, or all day every day wear. All items are hand-made in South Africa in limited quantities, and may vary slightly depending on available gems and unique beads and components – making each item that much more unique!

Look at her amazing Pot Of Gold Collection… which one is your favorite?

Denise’s Delights is a boutique cake, cupcake and catering outlet in Sea Point that is currently in its 26th year. Their house specialty is unique cupcakes with flavours such as red velvet (with cream cheese icing), BarOne, Lemon Meringue, Rocky road and gentle Vanilla. Their catering offering is equally tantalizing – they can handle any size function or you can make use of their incredible made-to-order specialties – must-tasters include their oriental fish, and scrumptious quiches. Their latest designer cake creation is a fabulous multi-layered Rainbow Cake (which you can stand a chance of winning).

Both Denise’s Delights and Ruby are based in festive, colourful Sea Point, one of Cape Town’s most loved commercial and high density residential neighborhoods – with it’s glorious Promenade, Atlantic Ocean views and diverse urban heritage. Its main road is a treasure trove of delights and reflects the diversity and cosmopolitan aspect of the area.
