Matt Preston Speaks About His Foodie Cape Town Trip

Matt Preston Cape Town

Following his Cape Town foodie trip, Masterchef’s Matt Preston wrote about his mouthwatering Mother City moments. He referred to the city as a “cutting-edge destination” filled with artisan food places and cafes.

Of course, we couldn’t agree more!Cape Town offers some stellar dining and perfect for those wanting a little taste of Africa (like these African restaurants in Cape Town we love).

Check out exactly what he had to say about the palate punching eateries he tested. 

“I love Hemelhuijs for the handmade gold flatware and the best ever porridge of sago melkkos (milk pudding), but then there is also the thick local bread piled with artichoke hearts, smoked trout and hollandaise or chermoula hummus, avocado, rocket, parmesan and onion jam.”

“Bacon on Bree is a cafe entirely dedicated to bacon! Here everything is built around this bacon, whether it’s chicken wings with bacon dipping sauce, their obscenely good lard-brushed and smoked paprika-dusted cheese and bacon toastie, or - honestly - one of the greatest bacon sangers in the world.”

“While Luke Dale-Robert’s The Test Kitchen is the only Cape Town spot in the World’s 50 Best Restaurant list, his glass-walled penthouse dining room Pot Luck Club on top of the Old Biscuit Mill is sleeker and, dare I say it, a lot more fun.”

“Babylonstoren is a short drive out of town, but visiting the cafe and restaurant in the huge, beautifully envisioned and executed kitchen gardens surrounded by classic white Cape Dutch barns and a soaring greenhouse is worth the effort.”
