In pictures: Sea Point’s off-beat restaurant scene

Aside from hairdressers (of which Sea Point has an unnatural abundance), restaurants are what form the greatest part of Sea Point’s street-level architecture. Asian restaurants abound, offering everything from hearty, warming bibimbap to steaming dim sum and fresh sushi. There are old favourites like Bella Italia and Posticino, both 16 years old (practically a century in restaurant years) and there are new kids on the block like artisanal café Jarryd’s and chocolate and coffee shop My Sugar. There’s also authentic exotic African food to be found at Mama Tembo’s and what is probably the world’s only psy-trance dedicated pizzeria. Photographer Jan Ras ventured down Main Road and its tributary, Regent Road, to capture some of the vibrancy and variety of the suburb.
