Why should I choose if I can have it all!

Just ideas that ooze at random from my brain, generally as soon as I hoped to fall asleep. So here they are, written out, so that the ideas can leave my brain. So that I can get some sleep. It may not be putting pen to paper, but finger to keyboard seems to work just fine. I type them out and then I dream.

Never order seafood from a steak house. Why? ‘Coz it’s going to be awful. Never order steak from a seafood restaurant. Why? ‘Coz it’s going to be equally as awful.

The general rule, is that if a restaurant specialises in one style of cooking, they are only making the other styles to try and placate fussy eaters and not because they are particularly good at it. Don’t get me wrong, there are restaurants that pull it off, but let’s be honest, most of them don’t.

Until I discovered Casa Nostra and Sakura.

These restaurants, nestled side by side in the heart of Sea Point are separate entities who have joined forces to create a hybrid Power Ranger style mishmash, bringing two completely different food styles together.

Casa Nostra Sakura

The two restaurants have separate kitchens, Casa Nostra a little piece of home-style Italian greatness; and the wonderful, Sakura Sushi Bar, who offer the best salmon roses. Ever.

You can order from either restaurant and the staff from each are friendly and inviting. Whilst sitting on the balcony eating a sushi starter and waiting for my lamb shank to arrive, I watched little old ladies with purple hair attempting to cross the road, bergies drinking out of bottles in brown paper bags, and men on cell phones jetting furiously past, and I decided that this little restaurant-marriage was a bloody good idea. I want one.

PS: They have wine tasting, sponsored by a different farm each week, and snacks every Friday night. It’s GREAT.

PPS: If you get a little drunk tasting that wine, here’s how to get home!
