11 Foods You Must Eat in Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Malaya Cuisine, as the locals call it, is much like the city of Cape Town itself – a melting pot of flavors with influences from Malaysia, England, France, and the Netherlands. Each dish, of course, has an African twist that creates a cuisine that is truly unique. Below are 11 foods that you must try from the world’s fairest cape!

Biltong

Biltong is the national snack of South Africa. It’s a form of jerky that’s found almost everywhere. One bite and you’ll be hooked. The dried meat is cured in vinegar and spices (salt, pepper, coriander, and brown sugar) and has an addicting flavor that is truly its own. While biltong varieties range from beef to wild game, beef is definitely the best.

Boerewors

A true foodie can’t travel to a country without trying its indigenous form of tubed meat. It’s sacrilege. Boerewors is the national sausage of South Africa. It’s similar to bratwurst but with the inclusion of coriander, cloves, and nutmeg to create a brighter flavor. Try Boerewors on a roll or by itself.

Waterblommetjie Bredie

Waterblommetjie Bredie is a dish that is uniquely Cape Town. Waterblommetjie is an edible indigenous flower that grows wild in area ponds, and bredie is South Africa’s version of a stew. Combine the two and you have an elegant and rich comfort food.
