First on the list was Organic Zone in Lakeside
“Let food be thy medicine; and medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates
In a perfect world, the food we eat would all be produced ethically and sustainably, devoid of chemicals, pesticides and antibiotics. In the real world, that’s sadly not the case… the food industry lost its way decades ago, thanks to a few greedy stakeholders more interested in turning a profit (selling GMO- and mass-produced crops) than in the wellbeing of our planet and its inhabitants.
We all know that along with this chilly out of season weather (and very welcome rain) the poor restaurants really can suffer, so here’s a list from Eat Out of Cape Town restaurants that are offering to tempt us into their warm cozy restaurants with some super specials! Click here
Home to some of the oldest vineyards and finest eateries in the country, Cape Town’s garden suburb has recently welcomed a crop of cool new places to eat.
A green belt stretching out beneath the Table Mountain National Park, with the Constantiaberg mountains looming above it, Cape Town’s lush garden suburb has long been famous for its beauty and history, with sprawling vineyards and wine estates dating back to the 17th century. It’s no surprise, then, that this bountiful valley has seen an upsurge in hot, new restaurants – which, along with its elite array of established favourites – have made the suburb an even more appealing destination than ever… These are the best restaurants in Constantia.
Food lovers are invited to indulge in a unique experience as Justin demonstrates his love for food and shares his passion for cooking.
The cost is R950 and includes arrival drinks, a Harvest style meal, wine and the opportunity to mingle with Justin. As a filmmaker, Justin is no stranger to telling stories or showcasing food. This event is sure to be a treat that will infuse you with a sense of adventure and a deeper appreciation for good food. Hosted by The Sunflower Fund thanks to the generous sponsorship of Justin Bonello, Sanlam, Jonkershuis and Groot Constantia Wine Estate.
Date: 22 February 2018
Venue: Jonkershuis Constantia, Groot Constantia Rd, Constantia.
Life for a vegetarian or even a vegan isn’t always easy in South Africa. The nation cherishes the thought of a juicy boerewors or well-aged steak sizzling on a braai and almost all restaurants predominately feature meat and fish dishes on their menu. While there are few eateries in Cape Town that offer more than just salads (if that) for vegetarians, surprisingly, pure vegetarian or vegan restaurants do exist .
Plant-based eating, it seems, is gaining major traction in the Mother City, with a slew of quality vegetarian and vegan eateries popping up faster than you can sprout mung beans.
But, while vegetarian cuisine is relatively easy to come by, restaurants that serve strictly vegan food are not. So in search of the best vegetable-focused restaurants in the Mother City, here are the best spots that cater exclusively for vegetarians and vegans.
