Diverse Dining in Sunny South Africa, from curry to crayfish, umphokoqo to potjiekos – with so many different cultures and such a dramatically varied landscape, no matter where in South Africa you travel there will always be a delicious array of truly authentic local delicacies on offer.
Fashionable in Jozi, oriental in Durban
In the bustling streets of Johannesburg, join young working professionals who favour swishy city restaurants with Phillip Starcke designed interiors (it’s not called the city of gold for nothing), or lounge with fashionable retrophiles in one of Melville’s quirky coffee shops. Over on the East Coast, Durban’s curry houses will easily compete for serving the best curries outside of India.
Garden Route aphrodisiac
If flying or traveling to the South Coast along the beautifully lush Garden Route, stop in Oudtshoorn to enjoy the ostrich delicacies of the Klein Karoo or head to Knysna and savour the abundance of locally cultivated oysters.
Cosmopolitan in the Mother City
Whether you enjoy a homey restaurant in the colourful Bo-Kaap where the best Cape Malay cookery is on offer, an African café with Marimba bands, or a sleek inner-city eatery with local celebrity chefs putting the latest cosmopolitan twists on the freshest local produce – the dynamic mix of cultures makes the choice in Cape Town ever so exciting.
For formal dining, head to the fruitful Franschhoek valley where Haute Cuisine is the order of the day – no wonder a few of the country’s best restaurants are located here, cooking up a storm in this quaint village. This is what really complete Diverse Dining in Sunny South Africa while enjoying beautiful and tasty South African Cuisine.
