Knysna Quays Seafood restaurant
Casual and laidback, Knysna's bustling food emporium claims that it's "not exactly a restaurant, not exactly a bar, definitely not a deli... well, not exactly a deli... it’s an eating place, a drinking place and definitely a meeting place". Well, it's a good place to be if you enjoy fresh seafood and fancy a bit of shopping. 34 South is also "a gift shop, a clothing emporium, a food store, a fish monger and a bakery, too. And the finest wine shop this side of the grape curtain!"
Start with a platter of freshly shucked wild coastal oysters still tasting of salt and sea. Tuck into calamari (tubes, heads and steaks) and mussels (in and out the shell) done in many ways - in vinaigrette, masala, with peri-peri or with wine and garlic. The herring comes six ways, the fish pates four and the mezze too many ways to mention.
Traditional Greek, Spanish and Portuguese themes run through an eclectic menu that highlights Mediterranean flavours - with chicken, ostrich and vegetarian options for diners averse to seafood. With tastebuds still tingling from oysters and bubbly, the mains are sure to tantalise.
Signature dishes tempt with fresh linefish brought in through the Knysna heads, east-coast sole, linefish espetada, Portuguese sardines, jambalaya and seafood paella.

Century City American restaurant
A visit to Canal Walk Shopping Centre is not a visit to Canal Walk Shopping Centre without stopping for at least one American corn dog.
The corn dog is arguably America's most popular 'meat-on-a-stick'. It is made by taking a delicious sausage, impaling it on a not-so-delicious stick, covering it in corn flour, and obviously deep frying it until it has a beautiful, golden brown colour. Try a peanut butter cup and a very American Dr Pepper or Cherry Coke with it and you'll feel as close as can be to the stars and stripes.
This wacky take away outlet is situated right in the middle of the food court and is open 24 hours - very American indeed. This little gem is something to experience.

The vibe at Anita's is a must-experience.
