I promised loads of food on the blog so lets get started with the first days and especially an amazing food market – Old Biscuit Mill. Unfortunately only open on Saturdays otherwise I guess we’d have been there every day 😀
The market reminds of Camden or Old Spittafields in London, there is a lot of food, live music with local groups, some clothing and space to just hang out and do some people watching. We do truly enjoy these kinds of markets as you can easily talk to local producers and its not a place where you only meet tourists but mainly locals. On top of it; the variety of food is outstanding and the prices are more than fair.
We also visited the Eastern Food market in the city centre, which is the place local people go for lunch. You can hardly see it from the outside so we’re glad our guide Rico gave us the tip the other day. Here you can find especially indian, malay, chinese and pakistanese cuisine. Big portions, good food, small prices, only locals – what else can you ask for? 🙂
Its called Bunny Chow and does indeed look a bit weird…its kind of a lamb curry in a bread – definitely way too much to eat!
In any case I can totally recommend to visit both markets should you be in Cape Town and you like to meet local people and sample cuisine which is not solely made for tourists!
Talk to you soon!
