Get a taste for Cape Town during ILTM Africa

Fuel up on local fare…

Cape Town is home to various attractions and heritage sites, but it also boasts some of the best food across South Africa. 

There’s a fresh-from-the-farm market around just every corner, new Michelin star eateries cropping up each year, and then of course, there’s all that wine which is simply outstanding. 

Savour the tastes of ILTM Africa.

The flavours of GOLD

As the chosen locale of our African Culinary Journey event for ILTM Africa, GOLD Restaurant is gearing up to serve delegates an extravaganza of dishes from across the continent. Think Egyptian dukkah and Ethiopian iab, Malawian mbatata balls, and South African shisa nyama prepared on the ‘braai’.

Cape Malay cuisine

From beautifully fragrant babotie to hearty tomato bredie, it’s hard to top the flavours of our Mother City’s Cape Malay fare. Pop into Biesmellah Restaurant for a real feast, or tempt your tastebuds at Fuzzy’s Food based at Makers Landing at the V&A Waterfront. 

Off to the market

Looking for a taste of something different? Make a beeline for Oranjezicht City Farm, a sprawling Saturday market based at the V&A Waterfront. Jam-packed with artisanal food (cheese and biltong!) and other locally grown produce, there’s something to satisfy even the fussiest of palates.

The Vineyard

ILTM Africa attendees are in for a treat at The Vineyard hotel. As the official host of the show’s opening forum and networking function, this leafy estate boasts a range of on-site restaurants serving fine, flavourful, and sustainably-sourced cuisine. Napkin and utensils at the ready!

What’s brewing?

Cape Town may be a hotspot for oenophiles, but step off the beaten track, and you’ll quickly discover a wide range of local craft breweries such as Devil's Peak Newlands. If you have a pertinence for spirits, sip your way through a refreshing array of artisanal gin infused with unique fynbos botanicals.

A taste of African chocolate

Have more of a sweet tooth? Head to Afrikoa, an artisanal chocolate company located at Makers Landing within the V&A Waterfront. Sourcing their cocoa directly from Tanzanian farmers makes their selection of chocolates completely ethical and guilt-free. Their rose and cardamom bonbons are everything you could hope for.
