Restaurant Review: Shun De Chinese Restaurant

During the past 2-3 months the subject of finding some authentic Chinese food has come up in conversations between the Frenchie and me several times as the strip mall/take out places you find all over Joburg just don’t cut it. I knew we needed to get over to explore Cyrildene, the neighborhood which is now considered to be the new Chinatown in Jozi (with the orignal one in Newtown though it is mostly abandoned these days). We have driven past many times and just never got around to actually stopping to check things out. Earlier this week, I read the new Johannesburg Travel Guide on Trip Advisor and the feature Best Food in Johannesburg from blogger 2summers. In the article she recommends Shun De Chinese Restaurant in Cyrildene (23 Derrick Street) and I immediately knew where I wanted to have lunch on Saturday.

Restaurant Review: Arirang Korean Restaurant (or the Kimchi that Kicked my Butt)

A couple of Saturdays ago we were searching for a lunch venue and wanted to try something a bit different than our usual salad/sandwich fare and we came across Arirang Korean Restaurant. It had been a really long time since we had Korean food so we jumped in the Jeep and off we headed to Rivonia.

Restaurant Review: Kong

Besides spending time in the great outdoors, one of our other favorite pastimes is eating.  We have eaten out at quite a few places since we have been here but this is the first time I have decided to include a restaurant review on my blog.  We have had quite a few good and very good meals here so far, but this past weekend we discovered a place that stands out a bit above the others that we have tried so far and I feel a bit more motivated to write about our experience.
