Nutritious and delicious, the new items on Rhubarb & Lime’s trial menu are healthy as much as they are appetising, not to mention their names on the menu will also give you a good chuckle when you order.

“This new trial menu that we have launched has a few new items that we are trying to test the waters with before including it in our new menu. Lately, uber-healthy eating has been trending so we want to try to incorporate a lot of that,” said Bergen Gill, owner of Rhubarb & Lime.

Since first opening their doors, Bergen has strived to create a relaxing atmosphere in her café that serves delicious healthy foods and provides excellent service for all their customers. She makes sure that her menu caters for as many dietary requirements as possible and keeps up to date with trending dishes for inspiration.

During my visit, I decided to try out one of their new vegetarian dish, named That Smashed Chick.

This dish consists of chickpeas tossed into cumin pan-fried cherry tomatoes; spring onion, baby spinach and Danish feta served on a slice of ciabatta/rye toast and topped with chai seeds and lemon.

What a dish this is, not only was it delectable, the portion size was just right and left me totally sated. A generous amount of chickpeas, juicy cherry tomatoes and toasted ciabatta bread tied everything together so well!

Other new dishes to look forward to on their trial menu are the Naana Bread Flat Cakes (gluten-free), The Chunky Monkey, and a variety of Croissants with delicious fillings, Warm Salads made with Roasted Butternut or Pan-fried Chicken, and their Pasta options.

The trial menu will only be available for a limited time so make sure you head on down to Rhubarb & Lime and order one of their new dishes before it’s over!

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
