A review of “La Mouette”

Josefien came to do her F.C.E preparation at EC (the South African English Language Centre in Cape Town) and recently completed the exam. She wrote this text during her course and we felt we had to add it for all the ‘foodies’ who come to Cape Town searching for a fine dining experience. Enjoy 🙂 My friend Tess and I have been visiting Cape Town for a couple of days. We have dined at several restaurants but there was one restaurant which was definitely outstanding. The place is called “La Mouette”. The first time we were wined and dined by two guys we had met in a club the day before. Because we felt so satisfied about the evening, and especially the restaurant, we decided to spend our last evening there. Our waitress was again very friendly and polite, although the service was a bit sluggish (we waited for our main dish almost an hour but it was totally worth it!). My friend is gluten intolerant so she is a bit of a fussy  eater but the menu was still very tasty and of a high quality. The waitress and kitchen staff went out of their way to reach this. Because of my sweet tooth we finished our dinner with a homemade cheesecake; it was delicious. To summarise, if you want to be assured of a very good meal, amazing, hardworking and friendly staff and a good atmosphere, “La Mouette” is the place to be! If you are interested in English language classes in South Africa or Cape Town; or you’d like to prepare for the FCE/CAE exam, then EC Cape Town is perfect for you!

Hot Chocolate in Cape Town

Winter has hit Cape Town and what better way than to get cosy than sipping a delicious cup of hot chocolate? Nicoletta (Director Of Studies) and Rifqah (Accomodations Officer) were found enjoying a steaming cup of hot chocolate in the lounge. Here is how to make an awesome, toasty cup for you and your friend or you can even make some, put it in a flask and bring it to EC Cape Town, the best English Language School in South Africa, to share with your classmates and English teacher. Nicoletta will happily do a taste- test:)     Nicoletta’s Chill Fighting Hot Choc: Makes 2 cups. Half a slab of your favourite milk chocolate 200ml Hot milk Honey or Caramel (if you like) A handful of mini marshmallows Whipped cream   Directions: Melt the chocolate in the microwave (stir every 5 seconds). Pour the hot milk and chocolate in a bowl and whisk. Pour into cups, top with the whipped cream, marshamallows and drizzle with honey or caramel. Alternatives: You can get ready whipped cream in a can. Nestle makes yummy hot chocolate powder- it makes more cups but less creamy. Remember- this is extra delicious if you share it, #ecexperince!!  __________________________________ Remember to follow us on Facebook or Twitter RELATED BLOG POSTS Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows!

Pizza and movie at the Labia for R55!

We’ll revisit “Diva’s” and then we’re going to see “The Marigold Hotel.” A delightful movie especially for those who want to practise their listening skills! See Claudia at reception for bookings.
