Something About Us

Something’s Cooking by J’Something is a home away from home. It’s 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. It’s 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.
