Food Roots -
A gastronomic melting pot

If all you want to do is eat your way around a country then you’ve come to the right place. It’s a gastronomic melting pot where Cape Malay food meets cuisine from tribal traditions that have been impacted by the rich history of travellers from the Netherlands, Portugal, India and the United Kingdom.

South Africa is a country of meat lovers - think biltong, bobotie and a whole range of exotic meats which should be tried with the hot sauce at least once. But there are plenty of options available even if you’re vegan, veggie or have other special food requirements. Find the best of SA’s food roots in humble restaurants like Mzoli’s in Gugulethu, Cape Town or Chaf Pozi in Johannesburg, or in one of the many cultural villages.
