CAPE TOWN

June 18, 2018

Cape Town is big, gorgeous, diverse and amazing and I highly recommend every one visit this city. It reminds me of a more beautiful San Francisco (no offense SF, I love you, too). The food scene is also AWESOME and you can pretty much find anything that you like. Unfortunately, I did not spend nearly enough time in Cape Town, but below are some quick recommendations if you make it there!

 

Paranga Restaurant - In Camp's Bay which is packed with awesome bars/restaurants/stores along the coast. I loved all of their food. The sushi was creative and fresh and

they had tons of salad, meat and fish options options.

They have something for everyone and the vibe is so fun.

 

Kauai - For a healthy, quick bite. They're basically Cape Town's version of Sweetgreen and have good ginger/lemon shots, juices, smoothies, avocado toast, breakfast options, wraps and fresh salads. There are a few throughout the city. Needless to say I loved it here.

 

V&A Food Market (on the waterfront) - This place was so great! It reminded me of Chelsea Market with tons of food vendors ranging from local food, gourmet food, international street food, health food and snacks. I found a local nut vendor and bought lots of treats from him that I snacked on throughout my trip. It'd be a fun spot to have lunch and explore the rest of the waterfront. Come hungry.

Top of Lion's Head hike

 

Lion's Head Hike - Amazing hike up Lion's Head Mountain. It gets pretty tricky at the end and involves ladders and chains when you're basically climbing completely vertically but it is absolutely worth it. The views from the top are \incredible and it's a quick hike back down.

 

Tokara Winery -  There are lots of great wineries in the Stellenbosch region. I loved this one - great views, food, olive oil, and obviously delicious wine with an expansive (and cheap) tasting menu!
