The YUM-Smile

A Swiss couple who rented a house in a nearby town for a month in January discovered where they could eat the best French Toast in the region. The last week of January Antonio and Desiree were daily breakfast guests of YUM and soon got acquainted with the staff and their YUM-Smiles. Sharon taught them the refined art of The Smile.

Bet they are still laughing in their village near Schaffhausen along the Rhine.

The demanding customers

Y-kevin-julesKevin and Jules from Cape Town are in the hospitality business, owning 6 hotels and doing the marketing for another 24 in the Eastern and Western Cape in South Africa. And they like to challenge themselves plus like to challenge others. So Jules ordered a “Prawn Salad but then without the prawns” (recipe on this blog Friday 7 August). “No problem”, Sharon the waitress said. “Okay”, La Chef Esther said and started to create a delicious salad and using a variety of fruits instead of the prawns. And Jules was happy as was Kevin with his YUM Banting Burger.

“Every now and then”, Kevin explains, “we need to get out for a week or so. We always choose a place within 2 hours drive of Cape Town and it has to be pet friendly. This time we are in Stanford for a whole week and overnight in the Bad Lemon Cottage in Short Market Street. While strolling through the village we popped into YUM and since that first time we keep coming back. Does not happen very often with us. This is GOOD”!!!
