It’s time for another series and I’ve decided the new series would this time fall into the lifestyle category. Drum roll please… Welcome the Cape Town on a Dime series – exploring the world class Mother City on a budget! Because times are tough but hey, who wants to sit at home all day! You might know some of the places we’ll be visiting, you might not. One thing’s for sure though, it will definitely be wallet friendly. All photos in this series will be taken with my brand spanking new iPhone 6 (yes I am bragging) because one can’t be held down by a bulky DSLR camera (bless their beautiful souls) while having a good time.

I can’t begin to express how good it feels to be back behind my laptop, typing a blog post. And on that note, let’s dive straight into the neglected Cape Town on a Dime series! This time I headed to the unpretentious Arnold’s restaurant on Kloof Street in central Cape Town.

As it’s full-on winter in Cape Town, it was of course pouring with rain on the night we were there so unfortunately I don’t have any pictures of the front view of the establishment. But hey, you’re going there for the food right! This was only our second visit to the laid-back, cosy restaurant so we chose something we wouldn’t normally go for when eating out – beef stew and garlic mash with a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. It was the special-of-the-day and was unbelievably priced at R125 for a two person serving.

The stew made our bellies all warm and fuzzy inside so we cooled down with the deep fried Bar One dessert. Yummy Bar One filling in a crisp pastry served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream priced at only R35. We washed everything down with a cup of coffee and left the restaurant feeling content – both financially and with our tummies! Another Cape Town on a Dime series blog post, another budget friendly place.
