Restaurant review: A little love affair with Dalliance, V&A Waterfront

It’s not often that a bathroom break leads to a great, yet unexpected restaurant discovery but such was the case when we stumbled across Dalliance, whilst strolling about the ever-buzzing V&A Waterfront on a beautiful Saturday morning in September.

A short time ago, my friend and I were trekking up both Long […]

After my Titanic Expo experience and subsequent reviews, I was kindly invited back to explore the Power of Poision Expo, which was set to arrive on South African shores in April 2016.
