Mangiamo

Wickerwood Walmer Port Elizabeth South AfricaIn the heart of 6th avenue Walmer, Port Elizabeth, South Africa, lies a popular restaurant on the PE scene, “Mangiamo”. They are probably most well-known for their pizzas which have gourmet toppings like carpaccio and preserved fig on delicate, crispy-edged bases. Pasta is hand-made using Tipo 00 flour. Bringing the crowds in is chef/owner and committed foodie Joel Malkinson. I certainly wasn’t disappointed with my delicious pizza the night we shot – which went down well with a wine from a list of over 50 that can be ordered by the glass! The sumptuous shabby-chic décor by Joel’s wife, Dee-Anne, is the perfect fit for this stately old Walmer home. We had so much fun filming this on a very festive evening, enjoy!

Physical address: 50 Sixth Ave, Walmer, Port Elizabeth

Osumo


No Comments

Cape Town in South Africa is bursting with coffee shops & restaurants all over its vibrant city. One brand that is particularly popular in large shopping malls such as Canal Walk, Cavendish & the Da Luz Mall in Seapoint along the beach, is “Osumo“.

Osumo is a small chain of healthy food cafes in cape town. We are a happy, energetic team, dedicated to providing natural, fresh foods that truly support a balanced lifestyle.

We had a lot of fun shooting their video profiles and found all the staff and management teams to be friendly, fun & professional!

We filmed their stores in all 3 malls and can personally recommend their strawberry bliss smoothies, which we drank a lot of while shooting! :)

I’m very blessed in that, through the shoots we do for Skybok, I get to travel to so many different places, meet so many different people and – best of all – see amazing things. I’m remembering now back to a place we filmed in Cape Town called Vovo Telo. It’s a trendy little bar at the waterfront and they are really well-known for their coffees and pastries. I also love their pizzas and artisan breads. I’ve realised that the coffee culture truly has grown both here and internationally. On the day we filmed their video profile, I just stuck to a peach iced tea. I love them and BOS is my new favourite make! How about you? Are you a coffee fiend?

Shooting the video profile of this divine coffee shop and restaurant – just off Longstreet in Cape Town, South Africa – was a pleasure!

It shares the same owner as Tjing Tjing rooftop bar, which is located above it.

I can personally recommend their cappuccinos!

An all-day brasserie, pantry and event space, this is really a nice place to host a function you’re having.

Breakfasts, lunches and afternoon nibbles are what you can expect to find here.

I love the upstairs function areas – very chic and quirky.

The Music Kitchen

The Music Kitchen Port Elizabeth Restaurants Music Bars If you’re looking for a great evening hot spot in Port Elizabeth, The Music Kitchen is my personal recommendation! Known for their Wednesday nights all-you-can-eat ribs and prawns, this is one of the coolest spots I’ve been to in a while.  And don’t just take my word for it – ask any local you meet.  The Music Kitchen is on Facebook so if you like what you see, join their online family HERE. They’re also on Twitter, so follow them HERE. What’s great about this place is that they provide a platform for original artists to perform. If you’re a muso in the area of Port Elizabeth, you can apply to perform and you’ll join their wall of fame which features many famous names in the South African music industry. Here’s what we shot for them:
