Claremont Chinese restaurant
This traditional Chinese restaurant is warm and inviting, with that extra special Chinese flair. Stark contrasting blacks and reds, paper lanterns and fortune cookies on the counters turn this space into Mainland China.
Something to try is their stunning buffet, complete with chow mein, chop suey, egg fried rice, spring rolls, and all the other popular favourites when it comes to Chinese cuisine.
The restaurant also offers dim sums and their sushi menu is quite comprehensive with the regular maki, nigiri, sashimi, hand rolls and fashion sandwiches......and more.
With a great ambience, great value for money and great food that is prepared with passion, Mainland China definitely is a super power.
Franschhoek Contemporary restaurant
Franschhoek, the French pocket of the Cape Winelands, has become renowned as the culinary capital of South Africa, so it’s not surprising to find oneself in a gem of an eatery like Topsi & Co.
A scrawled daily menu on paper set on an easel, the antique silver salt and pepper pots, the water jugs, the fresh flowers and the open kitchen will make one feel right at home as if in a great aunt’s kitchen. And then there is food: hearty, comforting and exciting.
Expect traditional fare that has been reinvented with flair. The menu changes daily to make the most of the fresh seasonal produce. Menu items include homemade Springbok sausage with chilli jelly and Warthog loin with mustard seed onion gravy with cabbage and samp. A firm, delectable favourite remains the white mold cheese and figs stuffed with walnuts, poached in red wine with citron.
The restaurant does not sell wine, but visitors are invited to bring their own.
Guests are encouraged to walk into the kitchen and check out what’s cooking. Alternatively, sit back and take it all in: the delightful smells from the stove, the clatter of pots and the chatter from the parrot – just like at aunty’s house.
