    Active Sushi in Hudson Street

    Visiting Active Sushi in Hudson Street by the Mirage building in Sea Point Cape Town South Africa was the highlight of our day today the 16th December 2015.

    It was not very busy today, but we still had to make a booking get a great table.

    Active Sushi welcomed us like long lost friends and were seated us at our table we had reserved, with the soft drinks ordered. Rushie took care of us and all our needs.

    Eating at Active Sushi can be an experience that is well worth booking a table for, not only is the food very fresh but your waiter knows what is on the menu and can guide you with what you like and what you are in the mood for. 

    My order.

    I had California rolls, Tuna Sashimi, Salmon Sashimi and the seared Tuna Sashimi. I also had some Salmon Inari, Tuna Inari and the Prawn Inari. The Salmon and Tuna Roses with caviar on top are just Yummy.

    Deep-Fried Sushi.

    I then selected to have the Deep-fried Salmon Maki, Prawn Tempura and the deep-fried Salmon Rolls I actually enjoyed this as I normally do not have any of the fried items

    This was super tasty and I could feel that my taste buds did not know what they were experiencing. Lol so had a bit of fun with them. 

    The Salmon in the Maki took a short while for me to appreciate the texture of the meal. All in all, very tasty.

    The Deep-fried Salmon Rolls had a distinct taste to them, and the texture is something that you have to tell people about! 

    I loved the attention and knowledge of the waiter, when I said I felt like something different,  she immediately suggested the deep-fried option.

    It worked like a bomb. Next time I will order the deep fried Sushi.


    Will I recommend Active Sushi to my friends? If it is between 1 to 10 I will choose an 11

    The best macaroni & cheese recipe ever. Seriously. Creamy, cheesy, straightforward, ooey, gooey – this macaroni & cheese will knock your socks off.


    • 8 oz. (1/2 pound or about 1 3/4 cups) macaroni or other medium tubular pasta (like penne or conchiglie)*
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/8 teaspoon smoked paprika plus more for sprinkling on top
    • 2 1/2 cups 2% milk
    • 3 cups (approx. 12 ounces) grated medium cheddar cheese**


    1. Boil the pasta until al dente, according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cool water to stop the cooking, and return to the pan you boiled it in. Set aside. (Mix in a little butter to keep the noodles from sticking if it’s going to be awhile before you make the sauce)
    2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
    3. To a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the butter. When the butter has melted, add the flour, salt, dry mustard, pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon smoked paprika. With a wooden spoon or whisk, continuously stir for three minutes.
    4. Add the milk in a thin stream, constantly stirring with a whisk. Continue to stir constantly until the sauce thickens, about 10-12 minutes.
    5. Remove from heat and add 2 cups of the cheese, stirring until melted. Pour the cheese sauce over the pasta and toss gently until all of the pasta is coated.
    6. Add half the pasta to a two-quart casserole dish(I like a tall 8-inch by 8-inch baking dish). Sprinkle on half the cheese. Add the rest of the pasta. Sprinkle on the remainder of the cheese then dusts lightly with the smoked paprika.
    7. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until the dish, starts getting a slightly dry and a tiny bit brown on top. Serve, topping individual servings with cooked, chopped bacon if desired.

    *Please resist the urge to add more noodles to stretch the recipe. You need a lot of sauce with that pasta because the pasta soaks so much and it otherwise cooks down. Over-dry macaroni & cheese is such a disappointment – don’t do it! **Also resist the urge to add more cheese to the sauce. This can do weird things. Sprinkle more in between and on top if you must have more cheese.
