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 …

#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. …

The Braai Room: NOU gaan ons braai!

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 …

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 …

A Rose by Any Other Name… Forti Grill & Bar

Noble Savage (he said): By now most of you would have heard about the new casino in Pretoria, named Times Square. Apart from the obvious gambling, a lot of airtime was given to the restaurants, particularly Guy Fiery and J-Something’s places. Both these have had very mixed reviews so far, …

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 …
