Dahlia on Regent Street

Those wanting a more casual iteration of Asian inspiration, check out Sea Point’s hottest little noodle bar, Dahlia’s on Regent. The cheeky eatery is open for takeaways and deliveries or, in their own words is “sending noods”. Start with a selection of snacks, such as steamed buns stuffed with barbecued pork, or  spring onion pancakes, before moving on to one of their famous hand-pulled noodle bowls. You can choose from coconut seafood, shiitake, short rib or aubergine, before ending with a citrus posset for dessert. Take-outs have never been so tasty!
