I was here for the Kaizer Chiefs vs. Supersport United game. It wasn't very well attended, but the stadium itself is beautiful and I just wish I had been there for the World Cup in 2010!
At the Life Grand Cafe in Hyde Park shopping centre. Figs are one of my favorite fruits, and this was an amazing cake. It might look like too much cream, but trust me, it was not ;)
At the new Tashas Le Parc in Hyde Park shopping centre. I don't even drink coffee, but put a shot of espresso with some gelato, honey and almonds? I'm sold.
I've eaten thousands of cupcakes before and never seen this flavor. Rochelle of Rochelle's Cupcakes makes the most delicious, moist cupcakes. I love how she inserts an extra layer of frosting in the middle of the cake. And this is the happy medium...
I wasn't going to order dessert, since I had a milkshake already. But then I saw this homemade banana toffee pie (they even make their own ice cream!) going out to another table and I couldn't resist. It's every bit as good as it looks! So sweet...
Dukes not only has fantastic burgers, but they also have great milkshakes and homemade pies. Exhibit A: Ferrero Rocher Milkshake. I told myself I wouldn't have dessert since I ordered a milkshake. I lied.
I've discovered an affinity for ostrich meat - it's lean and so tasty! Perfect for burgers. At Dukes Burgers in Greenside. This burger had fried rosemary-infused butternut squash and cucumbers as well.
A peek inside the newsroom of The Star, one of Johannesburg's biggest daily newspapers.
I'm continually amazed at what South African women can skillfully balance on their heads!
