Having been the first African city to be crowned World Design Capital, there are even more reasons to visit the sights and attractions and eat in the fabulous restaurants in Cape Town than ever before. Not that you really need much of a reason. South Africa’s “Mother City” is a joy whichever mantle it wears and is a top class destination on all fronts. Of course this means having a vibrant food scene. From simple shacks selling ethnic food to Michelin Star-quality establishments on the uber-trendy V&A waterfront, the restaurants in Cape Town truly represent the cultural spectrum of this captivating city.
1. Gourmet Boerie (Kloof Street)
Boerewors is a tasty, local sausage regarded as comfort food but is given gourmet status at the Gourmet Boerie, one of the authentic restaurants in Cape Town. You want to try local treats amongst the locals and this is the spot that delivers. You’ll even get to try boerewors made of lamb, chicken or ostrich (there’s also a veggie alternative). You’ll be seated at long pine tables and benches in a happy and casual atmosphere. They have sides, salads, beer, cider and wine and you must try the local desserts, melktert, malva and koeksisters. Kloof Street is a favourite with trendy South Africans and all who love eating a boerie.
