I know we all have (somewhat endless) To Do Lists, but what about To Eat Lists? Do you have those? I’ve decided it’s time. Otherwise, much as I love my Old Faithfuls, we always end up going to the same restaurant when friends are in town (usually El Burro in Greenpoint, a guaranteed good time with great food). Here, then, are a couple of the restaurants on my To Eat List, please feel free to add your own:
- Maria’s, Dunkley Square
Funnily enough, Maria’s is our local when it comes to sundowners and snacks, but we have yet to sit down and eat a proper meal here, despite knowing how superb the tapas are.
- Nonna Lina, Gardens
We used to eat at Nonna Lina all the time, but for some reason it’s been years since we’ve been – they do (as far as memory serves) the most amazing homemade pasta, and it’s definitely time to revisit this lovely haunt.
- Makaron, Stellenbosch
We stayed at Majeka House once about a year ago and were completely blown away by the food at their restaurant, Makaron. Ever since, we’ve been threatening to go back for a lazy lunch with friends – it’s that good.
- Carne, City Bowl
Our friends are religious restaurant-goers, and swear that the steak at Carne is out of this world… I would like to taste this for myself, especially seeing as it’s run by Giorgio Nava, the same chef who brought Cape Town the award-winning 95 Keerom… Definitely on the list!
What about you – what do you think we should add to this list, or where have you been that you’re dying to go back to?
