I often pop into the Kitchen for lunch when I am in Cape Town so I was keen to try Karen Dudley's new restaurant and We were not disappointed. A tasty main course of the day - roast shoulder of pork with savory rice and 2 lovely salads. Sadly we couldn't get in to their weekly dinner on Thursday. Well with a visit and great value at R90 a head.

We love visiting the Kitchen the other restaurant associated with Karen Dudley, and were so excited to be able to go for dinner, which at this time is only on a Thursday evening. They are open for lunch but at night this place is simply magical.
The concept is really different to a normal restaurant, in that there is a meal which is prepared which is served to all, there is not a choice, either meat or vegeterian.
The starters were delicious pockets of cheese and spring onion squares which literally melted in your mouth.
The vegetable main was a variety of sweet potatoes and beetroot salad with feta and beans.
The dessert was a fruit crumble which was uber uber delicious and wishing I had more space to cram it into.
Loved the decoration, which is literally like a Dining Room in a home, the back image of a multitude of birds is where the food is served from, and there are so any interesting bric-a-bracs inside.
Loved it and looking forward to going back.
