Decadent treats, unique handcrafted drinks, nostalgic flavours and interesting new food creations are what you can expect at this year’s Taste of Cape Town. The festival will have the same, much-loved format, but with some exciting new flavours.
“Our 8th year promises to be more festive than ever, with loads of new features, a collection of delicious restaurants and of course the sun, sea and mountain that make Taste of Cape Town so iconic,” says Justine Drake, Festival Director.
In addition to the pop-up restaurant line-up, a few top restaurants and their chefs will be there to show festival goers why they’re considered the cream of the crop in and around the Mother City. The restaurants taking part include a few Taste-veterans like Azure Restaurant at The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa and Camissa Brasserie.
Making their debut at the festival this year are Beluga with sushi master, Alan Huang, Don Armando with Daniel Toledo of Il leone fame, Hemelhuijs with its innovative owner & chef, Jacques Erasmus and Kitima at The Kronendal with Lai Kuan Geo.
