You'd expect them to be a little burnt out: in the past year and a bit they’ve started a new business, moved house and welcomed their third child. But Lee-Ann Liebenberg and her husband Nicky van der Walt are bursting with health and energy.
Lee-Ann doesn’t have a hair out of place when we meet the couple at their trendy new restaurant and bar Tang in Sandton, Johannesburg. Dressed in a blouse, faux leather pants and stiletto heels, she’s glowing and Nicky looks sharp in his formal trousers and shiny black shoes.
When they were here before lockdown last year, they were sad that their favourite Thai restaurant on Nelson Mandela Square was closing down. That’s when Lee-Ann jokingly told her restaurateur hubby to put in a bid for the property.
