This is true.

Without them knowing who my dad or my mother were. Without them knowing my father had passed away. I get offered my dream, my own restaurant, with the very company that was responsible for bringing me to South African soil?!
This is why I say this is more than just a restaurant. This brand and restaurant has a whole new level of meaning for me.
So when you come as a guest to Something's Cooking by
Something's Cooking by J'Something is a home away from home. Its a non pretentious, quality experience. Although the food itself doesn't have a specific theme as per say, much like my music, it is honest food. It is flavour filled food. It is food cooked with love. These are recipes I myself created and served countless times in my home.
There is a mixture between my Portuguese roots, my South African upbringing, and my latest obsessions such as Japanese cuisine and healthy alternatives.
At Something's Cooking all I want is to create a memorable experience for you, your friends, and your family. Its a place where I want the food to create conversation, laughter, and happy memories. Its core foundation is sharing, so come hungry and come with your people.
I sincerely look forward to hosting you with my incredible team.
