AMANZIMTOTI, or as Jack Parrow affectionately calls it, “Amanzimtexas”, will always be home to summer, lending itself to all things beachy in a coastal glory. Seaside nostalgia filled me up as my next adventure began exploring seaside eateries - photographer, Johann van Dalen and I packed our modern-day rucksack which included our iPads, cellphones and camera equipment to work our way down town. Lunch time immediately called and we found ourselves at Ollies Pub and Grill.

Ollies Pub and Grill
A classic pub environment with every pub classic you could ever imagine. And I mean everything. In the world of pub grub nothing missed, nachos, pizza, steak, schnitzel, livers, burgers and my favourite, Eisbein. Our waitress Layla quickly served us cold drinks and we ordered the eisbein to share. Food was quick. Eisbein was good and unfussy. Exactly what you would expect from a pub. I was also pleasantly surprised with the menu pricing, especially the pizza options which I imagine is a real treat for a family on a budget. I will be back, if not for food for karaoke with a half price special on all drinks. Say what now? Yes, half price drinks every Thursday the manager confirmed. See you there.

With bellies happy we needed something sweet and what happened next blew my mind.

Baggies
Situated on the beach, a small seaside take-away-hole-in-the-wall style café offered surfers quint essentials after riding the sea. Quintessentials I was very happy with. Sandwiches, waffles, milkshakes and then something I have never heard of in my entire culinary life. A dessert bunny chow. I couldn’t believe my ears when the waitress Emma explained what is was. I had to have one. A bubble-gum milkshake sealed the deal. Toasted bread soaked in a sweet and salted caramel sauce. It was heavenly and I could not believe I hadn’t had one before. A must try. School holidays are almost here and I would definitely suggest this eatery for the children.

Do you have any suggestions of cool places on the coast?

Until then, happy dining!
