Hidden Treasures Fish House Restaurant Budaiya

What a find! The special kind of discovery where you just stumble across it and could very well have driven straight past. A classic case of ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’. This very basic restaurant serves up the most delicious fish and seafood at a very reasonable price.

Hidden Treasures Mithaas

Welcome to my second Hidden Treasure instalment. Mithaas is a restaurant I have been meaning to try for some time. It is a pure vegetarian Gujarati restaurant.

Our South African Adventure Part 3 – Fabulous Foodie Cape Town

The final part of our amazing holiday in South Africa was spent in an absolute foodie wonderland. Rightly or wrongly the Michelin guide doesnt cover Africa.

The other side of the argument is of course that maybe the fresh exciting talent in SA and Cape Town in particular doesn’t need confirmation from an old crusty institution that they are absolutely fabulous!
