On Thursday, July 7 at 19h00, The Cape Royale Hotel’s acclaimed eatery, EighteenHundred Grill Room, is offering a four course meal prepared by their talented chef, Jonathan Gargan, which will be paired with Warwick Wine Estate’s flagship wines. How much do you think a night like that should cost? R500? Nay! R335 will nab you [...]
Pick n Pay’s recent venture into the ass foods market (in the form of ass flavoured, ass cup noodles and, lest we forget, simply spreading ass) must have produced some good results. It seems the retail giant is now experimenting further with the ass flavour, and has made it available inside a wrap, no less – [...]
Wonderful. A Taiwanese court ruled this week that a female food-blogger’s claim that a local restaurant’s beef noodles “were too salty” justified 30 days in detention, and two years of probation. Even better, she has to pay 200,000 Taiwenese dollars (about 50K ZAR) in compensation to the restaurant.
I was raised on Philadelphia Cream Cheese and didn’t think I would love another. Well, I was just in Provence for a month – as we do every year – where we ate Kiri cream cheese every morning with baguette, which we would buy during our morning walks. Because that’s how we roll in the [...]
If you don’t know what Kool-Aid is, it’s the American equivalent of Oros, only with a shit ton of sugar and an abundance of magical E numbers. If the American Heart Association had hitmen, the guy who invented this snack would be at the top of their list. But really, he loves deep-frying so much that you can actually see the excitement in his eyes.
We’ve been covering the rise of Ass-Flavoured Products for a while now – and I think we’ve just found the first restaurant to start dealing in this surprisingly popular new flavour with their delightfully picant, ‘Ass Cake Sitdown.’ Please, click through & and be amazed.
I’m not entirely sure if this is a good idea or a bad idea, but a range of wine packaged in perfume-bottle shaped containers has just been launched in Italy and Germany. The drink is specifically targeted at women and makes life for the non-connoisseur, but still fashionable person considerably easier, as there are only three flavours to choose from.
I made my booking at a delightful place – cleverly named What’s On Eatery – situated in Watson Street in the “City Bowl”. Get it? Nevermind. It is a relative newcomer to the Cape Town restaurant scene, in operation for a shade over four months as both a deli during the day and restaurant in the evening. I must confess (even though this is a review), What’s On Eatery is outstanding – no question about it. Follow the link to find out why..
Two young PETA activists in Montreal, Canada have served up a whole bunch of vegetarian sausages to fans at Thursday’s Grand Prix testing. They say it’s better than any sex drug. Nom nom nom.
At the Harbin Siberian Tiger Park in Northern China, feeding time has become something of a spectator sport. The park is reportedly home to around 1 000 tigers and it’s also one of the world’s largest and most successful conservation parks for the endangered animals.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has been handing out the warnings lately. But it shouldn’t come as a surprise that what’s been happening across northern Europe is actually becoming quite a dangerous problem. It’s reported that the E-coli bacteria responsible for the deaths of 18 people so far is from a strain “never seen before” in an outbreak.
The temerity of those Danes. Here’s a nation whose history has been characterized by men wearing pointy helmets sailing around the Seven Seas and stopping off occasionally for a spot of raping and pillaging that now bans a gloopy spread from Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire because it contains added vitamins. When I was a lad, a Nanny was a woman with big bosoms who told me stories about three little pigs as I drifted off to sleep, safe in the knowledge that all was right with the world.
Some places hold specials. Others hold special events. The EighteenHundred Grill Room is one such place, and what with it perched beneath my beloved residence, the Cape Royale Hotel, I’ve been known to nip in there more regularly than not. They’re laying on the special treatment this winter with a Tapas and Jazz series, happening [...]
You may or may not be aware of television programmes like Trawlermen or Deadliest Catch. Times can be more than just physically and emotionally tough aboard these fishing vessels, they can go ages without catching anything substantial too. Now the EU is planning to offer the fishermen an alternative income stream. And hopefully curb pollution obviously.
It’s easily one of Cape town’s most famous winter specials. Almost as famous as their Sunday nights, the Cafe Caprice 2-for-1 burger special is loved by locals and foreigners alike! I’m going tomorrow night and I strongly advise you get in there soon. Once the momentum gets going you’ll struggle to get a table throughout [...]
Self-cannabalism is not for the faint-hearted. And there are only eight recorded instances of it in the world. Most recently, a man from New Zealand cut off his little finger and ate it. It’s interesting to note that he’s a vegetarian.
It has emerged that Rashid and Akbar Khan, the two Pakistanis who helped Osama bin Laden hide in the shadows of their country’s army, bought large food orders for those living at the compound. They chose big brands and equally favoured Pepsi and Coke, neighbours and a local shopkeeper have claimed.
With all the talk of events in London over the past week, I couldn’t help but feel slightly nostalgic for my halcyon days in the UK. Weekends in Europe, snakebites, wild nights at the Met Bar, Pimms, Linen suits, boat races – my, they were good days. Not the weather, mind, but the first world nature of it all.
Not shy of diversification, it seems this local retailer is versatile enough to branch out into personal hygiene products. Who would have thought that a butchery would be the go-to place for one to acquire Ass Creams? “Kudos” to you!
The success of ass flavoured foods and products sweeping the nation has clearly led to complacency of sorts. Here we see a local Spar confidently selling ‘yesterday’s’ ass cake! THAT’S how good it is. Will it replace the all-time leftover food winner, pizza? Only time will tell..
Obviously it’s not actually humorous to make fun of natural disasters, and that’s not what we’re doing here. Instead we’re laughing at the unique situation that Eric Hubbard landed up in, shall we say. So, go ahead and make of this fellow what you will. He is rather superbly animated with his storytelling execution.
In what is not your typical Chinese dog story, hundreds of dogs were spared from being served as the main course in restaurants in China last Friday. Activists managed to stage a 15-hour standoff in order to save them from the dinner table.
The target of most of Cape Town’s single (and otherwise) women (and otherwise) was spotted leaving Hudsons Burger Joint on Kloof Street yesterday. As the word spread on Twitter, 2oceansvibe’s lensmen got into position and nabbed these shots of Ryan Reynolds for you. Follow the link to check them out.
The S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards is a pretty big deal. The judges scour the world for the finest of fine dining, and it just so happens that Le Quartier Francais in Franschhoek nabbed the number 36 spot. Two thumbs up!
Whilst a product of this nature may well be found in the back section of your local pharmacy, it is impressive to note that mainstream home-shopping chain, Checkers, is taking personal hygiene so seriously. A 2oceansviber spotted this sign in a local Checkers store. They certainly aren’t hiding such intimate products/kits in the back of [...]
Marketing can be a really beautiful thing. It’s also a touch difficult to remain original within the fast paced environment of radvertising these days. So, when someone gets it right, like launching a “jou ma se burger” for instance, one just has to give it the old customary head-nod and one-corner-of-the-mouth-curling smile it so rightly deserves.
If you’ve ever made your way to Mzoli’s in Gug’s, or even just to the Mzoli’s Butchery to pick up your whopping large lamb chops, you’ll be aware that this has the potential to be one hell of a vibe. Instead of washing down a tasting with a boring biscuit, we’ll probably be snacking on a piece of wors.
We can all guess what the official fruit of New York State is, can’t we? That’s right – the apple. Official drink of the New Yawkers? Milk. But now the race is on to name the official state vegetable. And the lawmakers are making a meal of it.
