Reviewing The New Local: Tiger’s Milk 🍔
After the uncertainty of whether our student budgets will agree to dining here or not, my friends and I decided to try Tiger’s Milk, the Claremont version. Tiger’s Milk is beautiful from the inside out. I actually think the exterior beauty made us imagine huge holes in our pockets when we come out of there. Luckily, we realised that we would be able to fix the holes by hand-sewing them. The pain was not that deep & it was surely worth it.
Aesthetically, I was amazed. The art along the wall that was adjacent to the couch I was sitting on made me so happy. Not only was it beautiful, but it had a monotonous black-and-white theme, which I am obsessed with. Using wooden tables, a wooden menu “clipboard” and the wooden sauce holder was something unique: it was a first sight for me. The consistency (wood- & black-and-white theme) has to be applauded.

The waiters and waitresses are friendly and they kept on checking on us to make sure that we were okay all the time.
For students, finances are very NB!
Food prices range from R42 – R185, drinks are between R18 – R105 (excluding the prices of champagne- & wine bottles) and the sauces, extras and sides start from R8 – R49.
The portions are quite big – I was shocked. For R100, my stomach was pleased after being treated to pizza and a milkshake.(Picture: Nonceba Mlungwana)
I am not a culinary- or food science student, but this pizza and milkshake was definitely worth forcing myself out of bed.
For those who want to have a cold beer or a glass of wine/whisky after a long day, one side of Tiger’s is a bar. Hunger and thirst both sorted under one roof.
