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).

Also, we needed a break from the kids… If I have to sing The Hotdog Song one more time…

Cafe Caprice Restaurant Review - Caffeine and Fairydust  Taryn and Maz

First of all – the location does not get better than this. Whether it is for the artisan cocktails in the summer months or for the great winter burger special, Café Caprice never disappoints.  Situated on the world famous Camps Bay Strip, Caprice has been around since 1999 and still enjoys a faithful following from locals and international visitors alike.

We sat at our table watching the sun set across the ocean, palm trees against a blood orange sky,  surrounded by beautiful people and good vibes. Continue reading
