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 …

Iskia by Alfie’s: Atlantis in Pretoria

Noble Savage (he said):  Alfie’s has been a bit of a mainstay in Pretoria when it comes to Italian cuisine for a while now. They’ve always been in a little shop in Hazelwood in Pretoria, and last year (or the year before) opened a pizzeria just around the corner. We’ve …

#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 …

The Flame: La Fiamma

Noble Savage (he said): A few Saturday nights ago it was the wedding of two very good friends, so needless to say on that Sunday we were feeling a bit “under the weather”. Also, the Friday night was Whiskey Live, so we were both working on a two-day compound hangover. We …

Carbon Bistro: A Flight of Fancy

  Noble Savage (he said): Gin is quickly becoming the new “it” drink, with everyone and their mother jumping on the bandwagon. Carbon Bistro has for the last 15 months been Pretoria’s only quality gin bar, and they recently upped their game with the introduction of Flights of Gin, their …

Noble Savage (he said): We’ve made it to the third week of our budget challenge, and are yet to show visible signs of malnutrition. It’s been a good run so far, and this week, we made our way to 1855 at Lynnwood Bridge, Pretoria. 1855 is named for the year …
