Observatory Asian restaurant
If you are in Cape Town and have not yet visited 1890 Sushi House and Grill, then you are seriously missing out. Some like to keep it a secret just to make sure they will always have a table. Capetonians all agree that this is the best and most delicious sushi in town with a grill to match.
One does not even notice the simple and slightly bare décor because you are just too busy socialising over the fresh sushi – or fresh turn-table sushi – and large portions. The most difficult choice is will I only order sushi or take on one of the mouth-watering chicken, duck, pork, beef or seafood dishes.
You will be sure to spot Charlie, the owner, ensuring that all his patrons are happy and catching up with his regulars.
Be sure to book a table at this very popular and reasonably priced restaurant in Observatory, Cape Town. They are open from Monday to Saturday for lunch and dinner. The best sushi in Cape Town!

Wood burning pizzas prove very popular with various toppings such as chicken, brie, cranberry and avocado which come highly recommended.
Heartier dishes such as the veal dishes exude Italian specialty as does the grilled baby beef with porcini mushrooms, Cajun fresh line fish, tender lamb shank, or crumbled veal chops.

Claremont Burgers restaurant
Why write about a burger joint? It doesn't seem so odd if the burgers are more like a work of art than a meal.
3rd Hudsons are really onto a recipe for success. Great service, great portions and great fresh ingredients is at the order of the day. The best ground meats are selected and it is claimed to contain more than 20 % less fat than normal. The toppings are freshly made as well and include traditional favourites as well as more exciting options. Be sure to try the mint and jalapeno salsa, in itself an explosion of flavours. How does a perfectly cooked patty topped with tomato relish, biltong dust, chilli cream cheese and sliced battered jalapeno rings sound? Too good to be true? Not here.
The relaxed sense of humor on the menu is very refreshing and the Ba-rack-o-lama, or La Di Dah (with ostrich meat) are examples of this. For vegetarians they offer a delicious chick pea and lentil burger with fresh goat's cheese and avo.
This is a must-try and must-repeat experience.
