I was lucky enough to receive complimentary tickets to Taste of Durban, from the lovely ladies at Zomato. Despite the pouring rain on Friday evening, MC and I headed out for much needed date night and to taste the delicious meals on offer.

We enjoyed a taste from each stand (the crispy calamari from Beluga was my best!), were treated to live DJ’s from East Coast Radio, and tasty cocktails from various bars/lounges. There were different stands selling products from cupcakes and treats, biltong, Banting bakery and buffalo cheeses. We treated ourselves to the delicious dessert of Wicked Donuts – the Nutella mini donut is amazing! There were also two master classes available – a mixology master class to learn how to mix cocktails and a burger master class to make different burgers. Unfortunately, we skipped those due to time and the pouring rain but had a wonderful evening.
