That’s right your eyes will feast on bold colors, your ears will enjoy traditional music boasted by this stunning part of the world, however, the sense that may be in for the biggest treat of all is your sense of taste!

Cape Town sure knows how to offer amazing food. In fact, it is more than possible to spend your entire vacation time eating, if you so wish to do so!

While there are endless amounts of meals and foods to try in Cape Town, we are going to tell you about five choices that e really do not think that you should miss out on.

A Monkeygland Burger Or Steak At The Spur

Please don’t worry, we are not talking about harming any real monkeys here! However, if you are a burger fan you really need to try these specialties, once you have tasted a burger like this, there is every chance that you will never want to eat another type of burger again!

Traditional Street Food – Sausage Rolls

Even if you are not usually a sausage roll fan, you need to try the sausage rolls which are sold by the street vendors on the streets of Cape Town. Now, when we say that they are a meal we mean it. We doubt that you will have much room for anything else for quite a few hours after eating one of these famous sausage rolls of Cape Town.

Be sure to ask for all the trimmings and take your time to sit down and get tucked in. In fact, these sausage rolls are so finger-licking good that we are sure your first one will not be your last one during your trip to Cape Town!

Waterblommetjie Bredie

We know that this may sound like a little bit of a mouthful to say, but trust us it sure does deliver on a mouthful of divine goodness and delicious indulgence! In a few words, it’s a lamb and pondweed stew. Granted, this description may not sound so appealing, and actually, the stew itself may not be the prettiest stew in the worlds, but trust us the taste is something to be remembered for all the right reasons. Whatever you do, do not leave Cape Town without having a taste this traditional dish that delivers in a way that would be hard to compete with.

Barbecued Snoek

Snoek is a local fish to the area and one that is enjoyed by the locals. They usually barbecue the fish and serve it with apricot jam (yes, you heard us right, jam and fish do go well together!), or they may serve the fish dried and salted.

Braai like a pro. 

By the way, in Cape Town they don’t call it barbecued snoek, they call it braaied fish, it’s their word for barbecue so if you see a sign for it, get yourself in the line!

If the snoek is dried and salted it will be called bokkoms and is equally as worthy of tasting.

A Braai

Since we have already taught you this word we should actually include it in our list of the top 5 meals you need to have in Cape Town. The people here sure do know how to do an amazing barbecue and if you want an unforgettable culinary experience get yourself to a restaurant that offers a braai and make sure you are hungry when your reservation comes around.

Indeed Cape Town is a treat for all the senses, but we are sure you will agree with us that your sense of taste is going to be in seventh heaven!

Seven Reasons To Visit Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town, South Africa, is known for its vibrant nightlife, varied selection of attractions, impressive scenery and a wide variety of accommodation options.

Here’s a list of reasons why everyone should make a visit to this part of the world at least once in their lifetime.


Cape Town gives visitors a glimpse of the variety of wild animal species available in South Africa. At the Cape of Good Hope visitors will find a protected nature reserve where zebras, ostriches and baboons enjoy their wild surroundings. The whale watching season runs between the months of June and November. If you’d prefer to see some penguins, then check out Boulder’s Beach.

Wine Culture

South Africa is one of the world’s top wine producers; while Cape Town is considered to be the gateway to the South African wine country. The Cape Winelands is home to numerous wine routes (around 18 official routes) and a couple of brandy routes as well.

Visitors are encouraged to get out of the city and take part in an exciting tour of this part of the country, sampling top quality wines in an awe inspiring backdrop.


Over the years South Africa has earned a reputation of being a rainbow nation inhabited by people of all races and cultures. This is very much evident in Cape Town, and the wide variety of dining options on offer. Whether you are interested in fast food, African, Indian, Mexican or Middle Eastern dining, the city and its environs definitely have something to for you.

When it comes to fine dining, the city’s Central Business District and the Cape Winelands should be top on your list.


Shopping is definitely one of the most important aspects of any exciting getaway, and Cape Town gives you every opportunity to indulge your preferences. Whether you are looking to get your hands on world renowned luxury brands, or simply want some souvenirs to take home with you, the city has you covered.

To make sure you don’t miss a thing check out the bigger shopping centers such as the V&A Waterfront; smaller options such as the Promenade in Camps Bay; and interesting local markets such as Church Street Antique Market


Cape Town is strategically located at the meeting point of two oceans; the warmer Indian Ocean and the cooler Atlantic Ocean. This gives beach lovers the opportunity to enjoy two distinctly interesting experiences along the same coastline. One of the must visit beaches on the Indian Ocean side is Boulder’s Beach, as mentioned above, while on the Atlantic ocean side you have the Clifton Beaches among others.

Cape Town Beaches 

Although the conditions allow for all-year surfing, the best time for hitting the waves is between July and September.

Scenic Landscape

Cape Town’s landscape is nothing short of impressive. It goes from the low lying world class beaches to the high altitude Table Mountain. Visitors can make their way up to the top of this world renowned mountain, where they can take in impressive panoramic views of everything from the city down below, to the ocean far beyond the white sandy beaches.

For an even better view of the surroundings, consider taking the Table Mountain Cable Car up to the mountain top.

Art And History

Nothing explains better the identity and history of a people than their art. Cape Town is home to a variety of art galleries and museums showcasing both local and international artifacts and art pieces. Some of the main options available include the South African Museum and Company Gardens, Robben Island Gateway Museum and the South African National Art Gallery among others.

As you can see from the above list, there are so many reasons why you should consider making a visit to Cape Town, South Africa.
