Osumo Review

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am literally obsessed with Osumo.

I actually remember my first time there. My flatmate and I wanted to go to Kauai, but we walked passed Osumo and decided to just take a look at the menu. Flatmate was really amped for this, but I did have my heart set on Kauai. Fortunately for her, I am an impulsive person, so I decided to give it a try. After this day, my life changed. Osumo is all I want!

Osumo is located in Canal Walk, Cavendish Square, Sea Point as well as Green Point. What I love the most about them, is that they like to stick to the basics. They strive to create a well-balanced lifestyle with regards to eating (especially fast food). The staff is always friendly and happy to wait patiently if you simply cannot decide between all the yummy food choices!

For a year I was so in love with the Vanilla Chilla smoothie, but my favorite now is the Almond Coffee smoothie. When it comes to the food, I do not have a favorite. I absolutely love The Flinstone (it has bacon in), or if I want something more plain, I have the Roasted Butternut & Danish Feta. You can decide if you want it in a salad, wrap or sandwich. Last week I actually tried the Sunflower Power Wrap. It has chickpeas with salad things and a delicious soy sauce and olive oil dressing! Definitely a must try for the veggie lovers!

I do encourage everyone to give Osumo a try. Take that risk that I did, you might be pleasantly surprised! The menu is available on their website if you want to check it out beforehand. I literally haven’t had anything bad from the menu, and I have had almost everything! From wraps to salads even to the stir fry! Next I’m definitely trying their Chocolate Pod Oats, because chocolate is life as we all know.

Yuzu Review

Some days, you want something that you are familiar with. Pizza, burgers and all that kinds of comfort food. Other days, you might feel adventurous, try something that you have never eaten in your life before. The issue? You don’t want to pay a lot of money for this “something new”. What if it doesn’t taste good? So when I heard Yuzu had an opening special, of course I had to go try it!

The special: 1/2 price sushi and R99 for a bowl of Ramen and a drink. We decided to try the sushi as well as the ramen. The sushi is quite pricey, but the portions are huge!We had the Tuna and Avo Maki and the Salmon and Avo Onigirazu. It was 8 pieces in total, whichย fiancรฉ and I shared. I only managed to have 3 pieces! I promise you guys, the portions are huge, but so good!

So next up: the ramen. We were both really scared, but really excited to try this new dish. The verdict: when are we having ramen again!? It was amazing! The ramen consisted of aย soft boiled egg, udon noodles, spring onion, toasted sesame seeds, chinese leaf and bean sprouts in a lemongrass broth. I went for the chicken option, thinking it would be a little healthier. The chicken was deep fried (but lets be honest everything deep fried is good anyways). The flavours are amazing! I absolutely loved the noodles as well as the lemongrass broth. Again, the portions were huge. Neither of us could finish the bowl of food!

I definitely recommend this place for anyone who wants to try something new. Especially since they have a special. Support this new restaurant guys! You will be pleasantly surprised, I promise!
