Vondeling at The National

Noble Savage (he said): The National is one of those restaurants that we’ve had on our list for the longest time, but somehow never managed to visit. So we jumped at the chance to visit when, somewhat serendipitously, Vondeling Wines invited us to attend a wine and food pairing, with …

Toni’s Fish & Chip Co: Die Kaap in Pretoria

Noble Savage (he said): I’ve always been a big fan of traditional fried fish & chips. There’s something almost artistic about turning a simple piece of hake into so much more, using just batter and oil, and complimenting it with the humble potato. Everyone has a story about the best …

#JanuWorry: Café Picobella Trattoria

Noble Savage (he said): Those of you following #BoozySavageJanuworry will know we’ve already saved R155 using the Entertainer App. That’s not a bad start, if I do say so myself. So when it came time for lunch, we headed out to Café Picobella Trattoria in Melville for a two-for-one deal. …

Farewell to 2017 at Jerry’s Burger Bar

Noble Savage (he said): Quality meat is, in my opinion, becoming harder and harder to find. A few butchers are getting it right, but some not so much. One that is getting it right is Country Meat. Along with supplying some pretty famous restaurants, they also have a few butcheries …

#Brewfood Revolution at Beerhouse Centurion

Noble Savage (he said): Since opening a branch in Centurion, we’ve frequented Beerhouse a few times. It’s nice to have a quality bar nearby to let off some steam. Normally we just go for a drink or two, and have also been invited to attend a few of their #MeetTheBrewers …

Cowfish: Hybrid Theory

Noble Savage (he said): Burger hunting is a tricky sport indeed. Everyone seems to have the “best burger” in town: Sometimes it works, other times not so much. The thing is that most of these burger joints offer mainly burgers, with a handful of other options. So what to do …

The Belgian Triple: Better Late Than Never

Noble Savage (he said):  I can’t fucking believe we haven’t posted about The Belgian Triple yet! We’ve been there a few times, and have enjoyed every single outing. So let’s do this! The Belgian Triple is the brainchild of two beer lovers; Gerlandt from Holland, and Nikolai from Siberia. As …
