Detailed  Itinerary

We depart Camps Bay on our Stylish Vespas along the Sea Point coastal road towards the V&A Waterfront Food Market.

At the V&A Waterfront Food Market. We will be sampling some authentically prepared African stew with Mrs. Balls chutney ( a proudly South African sauce), this African Cuisine is enjoyed by the local Xhosa and another tribesman alike being the Zulu, Malawian, Zimbabwean and other Africans. We will find a sitting area to take our time and enjoy and share this African food amongst our group.

We will also be visiting an Afrikaans Artisan Biltong Maker and be sampling some of his amazing Biltong, be sure to also try the game biltong, Kudu game being a crowd favourite. Spicy food lovers should be sure to try the Chilli Beef flavour. You might discover flavours of Coriander, Balsamic vinegar, Ground Black pepper, and Paprika. Our Afrikaans Biltong maker will run through his preparation process and what goes behind the preparation of this South African snack delicacy. You will certainly see why Biltong is arguably South Africa’s most loved snack at any given time during the week. 

We depart for the cobbled streets and brightly colored houses of Bo Kaap. in the 1700s, political exiles, slaves, and convicts were sent to the Cape by the Dutch from India, Srilanka, Malaysia, and Indonesia, although not technically correct most of these people were called Cape Malay and settled in the Bo Kaap. The eastern food influence quickly took hold in the Cape.

We visit a local food merchant to sample some amazing traditional Cape Malay Koeksisters, a Koeksister is a traditional Cape Malay pastry with a  cake-like texture, finished off with a sprinkling of coconut flakes, you will discover flavours of cinnamon, aniseed, ginger, cardamom, and dried tangerine skin powder. A favorite local pastry to accompany your morning coffee.
