With such a culturally diverse population as is found in the rainbow nation – a place with eleven official languages – you can only imagine that the city might boast a culinary landscape to match; local and wider African cuisine, Cape Malay flavors, and Cape Dutch influence – all that and more combine to form the wealth of our local gastronomy. Take that and add to it the influx of global cosmopolitan trends and you have yourself a food scene rivaled by none. With such an abundance of top-class eateries and mixology bars opening up, it’s sometimes hard to pinpoint the best places to eat and drink in Cape Town. Fortunately, in my golden years of retirement, I love nothing more than showing guests around my fantastic city, and one of the best ways to do that is through the vibrant bars and must eat places in Cape Town! In this colorful and diverse Cape Town food guide I’ve shared just a few of my favourites, including a little something for everyone.
