There’s a little restaurant that I went to recently, Lou Lou’s, at the Cape Quarter. I like to eat local in all senses of the phrase – eat locally produced food but also to support the restaurants in my neighbourhood and Lou Lou’s is one of those.
It’s a quaint little place in the dabbled sunlight of the piazza at the Cape Quarter in De Waterkant. The food is based on my favourite way of eating – tapas – because, as the glut that I am, I like to taste everything. There’s a combination of Asian, Italian and generally accessible food nations that are expressed on the menu.
We ate the pork belly in hoisin with egg fired rice, 7 spice seared tuna (which was spicy even for a Durbanite. And SO GOOD), truffle arancini and the pan fried squid with chorizo. Nom.
