Shopping Centre News
We have added another Bryanston shopping centre to the Megaplex site:
"Naturally Yours" Wellness Centre at 453 Main Road, corner Culross
Road, Bryanston. The centre has a focus on what they call "natural health" and has practitioners ranging from mainstream medical professionals through pseudoscience,
like Homeopathy and Iridology, to the absurd (dowsing, anybody?). An old riddle: What do they call Natural Medicine that works? Answer: "Medicine".
Still, it is said that Acupuncture is a jab well done. The major tenant –indeed the
reason the centre exists– is Weleda Pharmacy, which will give you both real and quack medicines to your heart's content. There are
also a hairdresser and two restaurants. One of the restaurants is Chez Girard, which was our favourite in its wanderings from
the Falstaff Hotel to the Garden Court Morningside to West Road South, and now to "Naturally Yours".
There have been big changes in little Rivonia Junction, the shopping centre at the southern end of the Rivonia shopping strip, corner of
Rivonia Road and Mutual Road (the road that joins 7th and 8th Avenues), entrance in Rivonia Boulevard. The 24-hour Seven-11 supermarket
has gone, perhaps a victim of the Spar at 90 Degrees moving to 24x7 operation. It has been replaced by Vasili's Greek/Mediterranean Restaurant,
moved from The Wedge, Morningside, last month, and which we review below. The Burgerville hamburger bar has gone, replaced by an expansion of Saigon Vietnamese
restaurant upstairs, which has now branched out into massage as "Saigon Massage" too. Drawing on this resource, the
restaurant now offers a shoulder and neck massage along with your sundowners on the terrace.
A "Jimmy's Killer Fish and Chips" (Halaal, but Killer prawns
adds to what is now overwhelmingly a restaurant complex.
Benmore Gardens Shopping Centre hosts an Oyster and Bubbly
festival in the exhibition courts, 16-20 October. Traders will exhibit and sell products of
champagne, oysters, and cheeses.

Restaurant Reviews by Judith Back to top
* A Strange Experience - Vasili's at Rivonia Junction, Rivonia Boulevard and Mutual Road
The volatile Vasili and his restaurant have moved from the Morningside Wedge
to Rivonia Junction. We visited on Saturday and found the squid heads good,
however I perhaps foolishly decided to go back on Sunday. The restaurant comes over as
far more relaxed and Greek than at the Wedge. The waiters are great and
enthusiastic. I ordered Lamb Schawarma. Well they don't do Schawarma
–no pita! Instead a wrap and, I suspect, fresh fried with LOTS of salt lamb.
Sent it back and had (you guessed) beautiful squid heads with thyme and lemon.
Then I got too confident and ordered Galaktoboureko and coffee. It is the
first time I have EVER had a salty dessert! It was totally disastrous and
any true Greek confectioner should be hunting down the person who has destroyed
one of the most exquisite Greek desserts.
The coffee was wonderful, as was the service. Pity about the food.
Contact Details for Vasili's Restaurant.
*** Pane e Vino at Morningside Wedge,
Rivonia Road opposite Alon Road
We are not opposed to second tries, so we revisited here to check out another
reviewer's experience. Service is way better and the pizzas have also
improved - still (in my humble opinion) way below Polpetta, who are hard to
beat. It is good to report on improvements!

Something huge just happened. Two thousand top scientists just ended the debate on climate change by agreeing on one groundbreaking report
–we’re now as sure that carbon pollution burns the planet as we are that smoking kills.
The debate Is over, but Big Oil-funded think tanks and the right-wing media are spreading lies, feeding doubts, and trying to discredit and downplay this moment.
