This delicious Middle Eastern dip has become a staple in most people’s shopping trolleys these days, and no surprise there, as it’s delicious and versatile. Even more so […]

Lunch up on high at Radio Rooftop in Covent Garden

Lunch at Simon’s nestling in the Constantia Winelands

I’m aware it’s all been very quiet on eatingcoventgarden.com recently. Apologies for that. After an unexpected extended stay in Cape Town because of surgery after breaking my ankle we returned to the UK last month. It was good to get home. And to be so much more mobile – the joy of being able to […]
