Small South African beachside restaurant wins World Restaurant Awards: News Review reviews

June 14, 2022

In the bulletin transcription, we have spelt the name of the restaurant incorrectly. The correct spelling is Wolfgat.

The story:
A small beachside South African restaurant specialising in local seafood has won the top prize at the inaugural World Restaurant Awards in Paris. Wolfgat, whose six staff have no formal training, opened two years ago in a cottage and cave on the remote beach at Paternoster. Its sixty-dollar tasting menu is a fraction of what prestigious Parisian restaurants charge.

Key words and phrases:
given an award
-France were crowned champions at the 2018 World Cup.
-Chloe came second last year but hopes to be crowned at the comedy awards tonight.

– This reviewer says the new Vietnamese eatery deserves five stars.
– If you want fine dining, San Sebastian in Spain is famous for its

first (event) in a series
– The inaugural modern Olympic Games were held in Athens in 1896.
– The school’s inaugural public speaking competition was covered in the local press.

  23. I have been following News Review for a long time and really like Neil's approach to words. I think he's a great teacher and very knowledgeable bcuz the way he intentionally asks questions in a childish manner is really important for English learners. Idiomatic and metophorical sense could get a little confusing at times for language learners and Neil deals with it perfectly. I wish I had a chance to have some tea with him and chat 🙂

  24. Yes, it's true, San Sebastian in Spain has many wonderful eateries to enjoy an unforgettable gastronomic experience.

  25. This inaugural teaching is to be great crowned of teaching us the word eatery in the meaning of restaurant.
    Thank you
