The food
For authentic Cape Malay in the Bo-Kaap area, try the Noon Gun Tea Room and Restaurant (+27-214240529) or the more highly rated Biesmiellah ( or the Bo-Kaap Kombuis ( where old Cape Malay and Cape Dutch songs are sung on some nights.
For a more elaborate meal, try the Gold Restaurant (, which does a fifteen-course tasting safari which includes Cape Malay and other African cuisine.
A gourmet Cape Malay experience is available at The Cape Malay Restaurant at The Cellars-Hohenort Constantia (, itself an owner-managed luxury boutique hotel. Reservations are required for this evening-only experience.
The iconic afternoon tea at the luxurious Mount Nelson Hotel ( is a meal in itself.
Try Braai at the House of Meat (, which serves a meat buffet braai-ed on an open fire. Prices are in the mid range.

The drink
We went to a wine tasting at the Fairview Winery ( in the Paarl area of the Western Cape. Our wine tasting cost included six wines and a selection of cheeses. But given the vast array of wine farms in Paarl and Stellenbosch, both an hour-plus drive from Cape Town, which one to choose?
