Just over a month ago we stole away for an adult-only weekend with our good friends! These getaways, seem to be few and far between at the moment, so we make the most of the opportunity when it arises. On the spur of the moment, our friends decided to book lunch and wine tasting at Glen Carlou. None of us at been before, so it was a new experience for everyone. [Read more…]
A few weeks back Grant and I stole away for a romantic dinner, at the new contemporary Italian restaurant, Blanko at the Alphen Hotel. You may remember it as 5 Rooms Restaurant. Well, the space has been given a new lease on life and a fresh, modern look. [Read more…]
Peddlars & Co in Constantia, has definitely become one of the trendiest spots in the Valley. Chef Brad Ball has to date, stamped his name on four distinctly different eating and drinking experiences – all at one festive destination.
The latest addition to the Peddlars & Co fold is Graciales, a trendy new spot in the heart of the Constantia Valley.
At Graciales the emphasis is on sociability, the sharing of delicious food and interesting drinks, all in a vibrant setting.
The decor at Graciales is trendy and modern, with pops of flamboyant colour! I especially love the Pendant Consol lighting!
Graciales is the perfect spot to unwind after a hectic week! What better way to spend a Friday night, than by having a few cocktails at the bar and sharing plates of delicious food, with good friends.
Highlights on the menu, for me, would naturally have to be Chef Brad’s famous Beef Tataki, as well as the Sticky Pork Belly! Other equally delicious items on the menu include: Tzatziki & Pita Breads, Sticky Vietnamese Ribs, Antipasti Board and Lamb Flat Bread.
Four desert there is a selection of yummy Petit Fours, Chocolate Truffle, Turkish Delight or my favourite bite-size Lemon Tarts. For more details check out the Graciales Menu.

This can become tricky if you are trying to watch your weight because let’s face it most restaurants are not serving low-carb, low-calorie meals! So as much as I love food and eating out Healthy Living is extremely important to me. [Read more…]
