Galbi Restaurant, Cape Town

The idea of eating out is that you do not have to cook, and of course no dishes to wash. At Galbi’s you are encouraged to cook your own meal. The experience is referred to as “The Korean-fusion Barbeque”. At each table there are small grills that are built into the table, with copper chimneys and there you will be able to cook your own meal. Included in your meal are various side dishes that follow the Korean tradition. Your meal does not only have to include the more common meat, but can also include venison or warthog. The main meal is first flavoured in the kitchen and then delivered to your table for you to cook. If you desire desert after your meal you are welcome to roast marshmallows. We had a wonderful conversation with the Kenyan couple adjacent to us about things to do in Nairobi, as we are planning a vacation to Africa in the coming fall.

Mzoli’s, Guguleto

Mzoli’s is a great tourist attraction and unique eating out experience. They serve a dish you can enjoy called “Shisa Nyama”. On arrival you purchase your meat at the adjoining butchery and then let the chef braai it using their amazing marinade. When your meat is ready it is not served on a plate but is delivered in an enamel bowl. You can also enjoy the legendary “Pap” with your meal. When you are properly settled in then the music begins and you find yourself in an incredible party environment. Mzoli’s is already making use of social media marketing with active Instagram and Twitter accounts.

Not only can you find great food but there is also great accommodation. Liziwe’s Guest House in Guguleto offers a warm and relaxed atmosphere for guests. You can experience Township life.

The Larder Café, Cape Town

The Larder Café, as it is known makes mouth-watering meals and all the ingredients used come from local producers. Three times a week, on Monday, Thursday and Friday nights the chef cooks a meal and invites anyone to join her. She calls this a “Supper Club” and it really has the feeling of a huge dinner party. Every day there is a special meal on the menu which includes a starter and dessert. The owners are a delightful couple who have dedicated a great deal of their lives to supporting organizations that fund the ongoing support for the many endangered animals in Africa. If ever there was a worthy cause, this is definitely one of them.

Downtown Ramen Asian Restaurant, Cape Town

If you are a fanatic for noodles you need to visit, Downtown Ramen. What is so unique about this eating place is that it only has two dishes, “Ramen and Boa”. These two dishes blend flavour and colour to produce a meal that food lovers can’t resist. The menu here is not the only thing that is unique, but it is also situated inside “Lefty’s” bar and restaurant. And to reach it you need to navigate a narrow staircase and pass by an arcade machine.

Secret Eats, Unique Underground Eating Experience, Cape Town

Cape Town hosts a unique eating experience called, Secret Eats. You have to register whether you would like to eat, cook or host.  So I chose to eat. It was not long after my registration that I received my invitation and promptly sent my RSVP. I had no idea of the menu or location for my evening out. I later found out that the menu and location change with each new event. It was early in the morning of the day of my experience that I received my first clue. I was to arrive at a selected place in Observatory and was provided with a secret password. We were taken to a home nearby that had been renovated from being a textile factory and warehouse. On our arrival we were welcomed and handed a cocktail. Then we were shown to our seats and only then did we see the menu for that night. During the serving of each course we were allowed to taste delicious wines. If you are an adventurous type then this unique eating out experience is for you.

The Cape Town CBD is not lacking in accommodation for the visitor. It has countless hotels, guest houses, furnished apartments and town lodges for your convenience. This is the beauty of all these different eating places above, they can all be found in the Cape Town CBD area.
