Scenes from Cité, Dunkeld West, Johannesburg

The sofa Rowena dubbed "orgasmic".


A stripey wall effort, strategically placed next to the bar. I'm guessing this will provide patrons who've imbibed one too many Cité Coolers with hours of "yellow submarine/lucy in the sky " burlesque wonderment.


Stating the obvious: Their interesting wrought iron door.


The Cucumber Mousse with Caviar starter (summer-creamy meld that held well with the cucumber, offset by the subtle snap of the caviar).
Mains was a Tomato Soup with Cumin and Coriander (dhana-jeeru addition brought on a soothing reminiscence of home and a tongue-pleasing combination of sweet and spice) with a Passion Fruit Mousse for dessert (like an oral inhalation of a smoothly flavoured cloud, thrillingly airy) .
I recommend their Chocolate Gateau too (with all the quality of swoonish oh-my-almighty-Deity-this-is-so-damn-good).


And to end off my foray into the domain of the gourmand, an almost God-Shot, capped by a perfect crema, like sunshine caught in porcelain.

Heathen! Philistine!

Kidding:)

I have eclectic tastes, meaning my tongue has not been fried numb by excessive quantities of garam masala.

So while i love a really good hot tarkari, something like the subtlelty of peppered avocado in a vineleaf wrap is not lost on me:)
