Of course doing a safari was one thing I had pretty high on my bucket list but secretly the actual reason South Africa was on my to visit wishlist was an estate located about an hour away from Cape Town. For years I dreamt about a visit to this farm hotel in the middle of the Winelands and when I knew I was going to South Africa there was no question I would leave the country without a visit to Babylonstoren. Pretty hard to live up to expectations you might think. Well, by now I can say for myself, I’m pretty sure you will love it too. READ MORE

Danish beauty Höst in Copenhagen, French favorite Septime in Paris, and now there’s the third place to add to my personal top 3 of most beautiful restaurants: The Kettle Black.
Nestled in a gorgeous, 1880s, typical Victorian house. In contrast with the big sleek, modern apartment towers build around it but it works together perfectly and almost makes it look like a surrealistic artwork. And this is just the outside..
Inside you’ll find honeycomb mosaic tiles, green ceramic tiles, concrete, wood, plants, marble, brass: everything merges seamlessly. It’s light, elegant, stylish, detailed and simplistic. Perfectly designed by Studio You Me.
Not only the interior is a pleasure to look at, the dishes are real artworks as well. I was happy to see they serve the huge ricotta hotcakes I saw coming by earlier at their other venue Top Paddock and a lot on social media like Instagram as well. I was glad I finally got to taste them an they didn’t disappoint at all! Neither did the home-made colorful decorated coconut yoghurt and the cray fish roll. Looked and cooked perfectly.
Ohh.. how I miss having my Australian ‘brekkie’..
