Review | Burrata @ The Old Biscuit Mill


As you know, I am a bit of a foodie and do enjoy the kitchen, naked chef’fing and clothed.

Those of you that saw my twitter & instagram feed a while back saw that I was banging on from a restaurant called Burrata.

Well, I decided to frequent the bad boy again, for a 3rd time (2nd for dinner), hence the derving of a review.

Its hard to decide where to start as being about to renovate I almost want to start talking about the decor for an hour. It rocks yo! I would be lying too if I said I havent stolen an idea or 2, namely the below…

This awesome Italian inspired eatery has a pizza oven older (and cooler) than most peoples great grand parents! A ‘slicer for meats and ant pasta in the room so you can watch and a wine cellar visible to you to make your vino hormones scream!

Lets get to the food though, and the mind blowingly awesome wine list (the perks of a restaurant being owned by a sommelier – that a wine genius guy, in this case Neil Grant, to the non French or wine drinking of us). They even have my favourite champagne, Salon.

For starters, I say hit the calamari and bruschette with a vengeance!

On all the occasions I have been there I have tried something different for a main, and to be honest, I dont have a favourite, but the pizza’s which they are famed for, are seriously awesome! No, seriously! That said, the steak is proper emotional too, though you need to be a lover of the finer things in life, namely sweetbreads 😉

Desert, well look at it… It was the thing people breakup over due to violent fights over the last piece!

All in all, I really enjoyed it, the prices are really reasonable considering the quality of food you getting and the quality of chef that is cook it, thanks Annemarie Steenkamp!
