After The Shortmarket Club a few days prior I had the opportunity to have dinner at another one of Luke Dale-Roberts’ restaurants. Unfortunately his main spot, Test Kitchen, was closed during my time in Cape Town, otherwise I would have tried to get a spot at lunch or something.

Anyway, The Potluck Club was great and definitely lived up to the hype and my resulting expectations. The food is simply outstanding, every single dish was top notch. Especially the fish tacos were amazing. I could easily see myself eat a whole afternoon’s worth of them without getting full. If you’re ever in Cape Town, make sure to go to both restaurants, it’s still fairly easy to get reservations there!

My first evening in Cape Town included a visit to The Shortmarket Club, one of the three restaurants of The Test Kitchen’s Luke Dale-Roberts. It just opened two months prior and certainly lived up to the hype!

At my team’s meetup in Prague this month we went on a four-hour food tour, organized by Taste of Prague. Jan, our guide, was great, taking us from blue-collar, traditional Czech food, to the Vietnamese influence, to Czech wine, and finally to a higher-end place that combines old Czech cuisine with the new.

Eska, the final restaurant we went to, was outstanding. From the design, to the way the kitchen is set up, to the food presentation, it left a lasting impression. An impression so good that we came back for lunch a couple of days later. This post should probably be titled “Eska” since all pictures are from that stop, but they are just the most shareable.

If you’re ever in Prague, make sure to get in touch with Jan and Taste of Prague, and let them take you beyond the tourist traps around Charles Bridge.

In a recent interview I mentioned Central Provisions to be one of my favorite places to eat, so when I was in Portland, ME this past weekend I made sure to drop by again. I got to go with a co-worker of mine as well as my dear friend Meredith, the people who run Map & Menu and who’re to blame for my new found appreciation for ridiculously good food.

Central Provisions is insanely popular and doesn’t take reservations, so we went extra early to make sure we’d get a table. By the time we got there just after 5 pm, there was already a 90 minute wait! Well worth it, especially when you get to pass that time with Bread and Butter and delicious drinks in their downstairs bar. Make sure to stop by when you get the chance.
