As the saying goes, “variety is the spice of life” and this is never more apparent that when choosing what to eat, especially in winter. As a Capetonian with a healthy appetite, though, I say why choose at all? This is why my favourite culinary establishments in Cape Town are restaurants with all-you-can-eat buffet options.
If there is one thing Capetonians are good at, other than socialising of course, it’s braaing. Whether it’s meat or fish, you can be sure that on a spectacular summer’s day (winter too!), you will find us gathered around the fire, enjoying each other’s company, the tantalising aroma of meat on the grill and our breathtaking city views.
