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.

Melissa’s The Food Shop Review

Are you looking for the best lunch spot in Cape Town? Melissa’s have a few branches, from Kloof street in Cape Town to Paarl. They have a huge breakfast menu. I have had their banana bread before and it is a must try!

Arriving here, I was served quite quick and offered a menu. I had a question about the sandwiches, but the waiter seemed to be unsure. He called another lady though who helped me really quick. Previously I’ve had a “bacon jam” sandwich here and I was really excited to have it again, but they seem to have taken it off the menu. I then settled on the BLT sandwich. I really enjoyed the sandwich, the rye bread was so fresh and the bacon just crispy enough so that it wasn’t difficult to chew (yes, I have experienced this before).

Melissa’s will definitely see me again soon! They have a buffet style table, where they weigh the food. It looked amazing! I will be back to try this out!
