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.

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.
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.
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!
