The Oyster Box hotel

Being a Capetonian I tend to have the mindset that Cape Town does everything best in relation to the rest of South Africa. I’m often proven wrong and happily so. One such place would be a certain hotel sitting on the beach of Umhlanga beneath a tall, cylinder lighthouse. It is The Oyster Box Hotel

Saigon, Cape Town

Saigon. I’ve been frequenting this restaurant for over a decade now, before I actually knew its name paid tribute to the largest city in Vietnam. When I first started dining there I would make concoctions with leftover rice and every sauce on the table – much has changed since then for myself and the restaurant.
