Gourmet (South Africa) - - CULINARY ESCAPE -

Lo­cal celebrity chef gre­gory Bazire ex­pands his culi­nary oeu­vre with this serene, sea-fac­ing an­juna cafe that prof­fers mostly or­ganic fare, with a fo­cus on fresh pro­duce. Try the fresh fruit smooth­ies and the all-day break­fast. The croque mon­sieur, char cheese risotto and smoky lamb burger are all great. For­tu­nately, there’s also a san­golda branch and another one in ashvem. But the one in an­juna is the best.

gre­go­ry­bazire.com serves up some truly ex­cel­lent Korean cui­sine, as well as sushi rolls and goan-style shell­fish dishes. The lan­guorous, some­what generic am­bi­ence and decor be­lie the high qual­ity of food served here. It’s well worth a visit even if all you eat are the su­perb Juras­sic crab and kim­chi.

LA PLAGE

serve equal por­tions of savoir­faire and French fu­sion fare at this trendy all-day bistro that’s beau­ti­fully lo­cated right on ashvem Beach. The menu’s heavy on ter­rines and gratins, but give the beef carpac­cio and the sesame-crusted tuna fil­let your un­di­vided at­ten­tion. La Plage’s famed choco­late thali is as de­li­cious as it is deca­dent. dur­ing high sea­son, it’s ad­vis­able to re­serve a ta­ble in ad­vance.
