The first light of human consciousness and the world's first civilizations were in Africa.”
-John Henrik Clarke
In part three of our three-part series, we’re not dashing off to far corners of the globe, but rather, keeping it close to home. We’re looking at culinary gems that celebrate African cuisine in all its glory.
Saddle up vacationers, we are going day tripping out to Rawsonville a haven at the side of the Breede River with a host of fine wines, great food and simply amazing countryside. It’s a 1 hour 20 minute drive through some of the most astounding South African scenery, rich in history and local culture.
Better known for its share of the Cape Town nightclub scene in the past, Loop Street has been abuzz with all kinds of new and exciting things. We’ll take a stroll down Loop and have a look at some eateries, from Mediterranean to local braai cuisine, perhaps hit the town for a few drinks afterwards.
In part III of our #CTstreetbystreet series, Buitenkant Street is where we’re headed. Running in the direction from mountain to sea, it is packed with little surprises, heritage sites and haunts. We will be popping round a tapas restaurant, a tattoo parlour and a creative design collective that happens to create amazing coffee and food too.
In part III of our #CTstreetbystreet series Harrington Street comes under the microscope and we look at a cocktail lounge, a dive pub that’s less dive and more pub and an old Cape Town favourite. Harrington street is off Roeland street, near parliament and the Company’s Garden.
In part II of our #CTstreetbystreet series we will be taking a gander at Long Market Street which runs parallel to Table Mountain and across the center of Cape Town, passing Greenmarket Square along the way. We’ll pop into a vintage clothing store, a brasserie and a themed rooftop bar. Call your Uber, let’s go.
