Deliciously creative dishes at The White Onion

Mouthwatering tapas at Upper Bloem

On a windy Cape Town day what better way to spend the afternoon than lunching somewhere new. I’d been meaning to try Upper Bloem for a while. It’s from the team behind La Mouette, one of Sea Point favourites. Head chef Andre Hill joined La Mouette as a sous chef in 2013 and impressed chef-owner […]
