Last week I was in Cape Town for work, and every night, we explored different eateries offering Tapas. Oh my word!
On Tuesday, I had Tapas at Fork on Long Street with my cousin and her husband. The food was amazing, and the place has an awesome vibe!! I walked there from the hotel, past a few colourful characters, but every morsel was worth it. My faves? Pork belly. Deep fried goats cheese. Seared tuna.
Wednesday, we paid a visit to Chef’s Warehouse and Canteen. The food is made by Chef Liam. And the menu changes daily. You order Tapas, and the amazing food starts rolling in! My faves? The parmesan risotto. Salmon. Pork belly. The wines are exquisite, and there is a shop at the back selling ALL THE AWESOME BOOKS AND KITCHEN GOODIES! I did buy some sriracha sauce, ghost chili pepper sauce, and some wax for my chopping boards. I have also ordered a food bible… hope it arrives soon!
Note: no bookings accepted at 92 Bree street. Arrive early, and stay the evening. Tapas served from 16:30 until 20:30. Wine, well, drink it until they ask you to leave.
Thursday evening. Haiku in Burg Street. Some of THE BEST dim sum I have tasted in my life. The Asian mushroom, to die for. The spicy anything, so yum. The BBQ duck steamed buns, finger-licking awesome. The dishes, out of this world. A definite must-visit. Arrive early, or book, it fills up quickly!
Friday’s lunch, before heading back to JHB, was at Black Sheep in Kloof Street. Blackboard menus. My first experience with rabbit. Craft beers, and uncomplicated, delicious food. With a great view of Table Mountain.
Even though I was there for work, my culinary adventures made me super happy. Trying new and wonderful and weird things!
