Claremont Burgers restaurant
Why write about a burger joint? It doesn't seem so odd if the burgers are more like a work of art than a meal.
3rd Hudsons are really onto a recipe for success. Great service, great portions and great fresh ingredients is at the order of the day. The best ground meats are selected and it is claimed to contain more than 20 % less fat than normal. The toppings are freshly made as well and include traditional favourites as well as more exciting options. Be sure to try the mint and jalapeno salsa, in itself an explosion of flavours. How does a perfectly cooked patty topped with tomato relish, biltong dust, chilli cream cheese and sliced battered jalapeno rings sound? Too good to be true? Not here.
The relaxed sense of humor on the menu is very refreshing and the Ba-rack-o-lama, or La Di Dah (with ostrich meat) are examples of this. For vegetarians they offer a delicious chick pea and lentil burger with fresh goat's cheese and avo.
This is a must-try and must-repeat experience.
Gardens Tapas restaurant
In a beautiful Victorian Town house on the vibrant and trendy Kloof Street is Asoka.
The menu offers superb flavoursome tapas and promotes sharing and socialising while sampling the delicious creations with friends and family. The food served is healthy and full of wonderful flavour combinations that have diners ordering seconds and thirds.
Enjoy a truly tranquil culinary experience at Asoka.
Gordons Bay Tapas restaurant
This happening spot in Gordons Bay is definitely the place to be whether you're young or just young at heart. Bar-bay-dos offers a simple menu that consists mainly of tapas-style foods, and the main attraction here is the sublime cocktails that are mixed to perfection.
Bar-bay-dos has live music acts two to three times a week and the variety ranges from rock to 80's to latin tunes.
The menu is small and dishes include grilled Portuguese sardines either rolled in coarse salt and grilled the traditional way or butterflied and grilled, served with spicy Portuguese chilli salsa and rice. Be sure to try the Jalapeno chilli poppers stuffed with feta and cream cheese, an ideal dish to share. Beef schnitzel, succulent espatada and butter-filled prawns are also on offer.
A variety of seafood can also be enjoyed and make a point of trying the Mississippi mud pie for dessert - it really is as indulgent as it sounds.
Cape Town Burgers restaurant
If you have ever wondered what real street food is, wonder no further. This little restaurant is located on arguably the busiest strip in Cape Town - Long Street.
Don't be fooled be the rustic (very rustic) interior. Just grab a high chair or a bench, order and await a new kind of delight. The Burger Shop, true to its name, offers mainly burgers, chips and stuff on rolls, but the portions are big and the nostalgia the street food evokes is something quite unique.
The dining process can become quite messy as it is 'illegal' to eat a burger with anything else than your hands, but this is part of the fun and colourful vibes that especially this part of Cape Town offers.
This is definitely not something to try if you prefer fine dining in a posh spot, but if you want a unique, proudly South African experience, pop in here.
Cape Town Tapas restaurant
Located along the bustling and vibrant Long Street, Cafe Mojito lulls the palate with tropical surrounds and lip smacking mojitos.
The menu brims with Cuban-Caribbean flavours, burgers, nachos, salads and a great snack selection for the not-so-hungry such as sticky ribs, empanadas, buffalo wings, angry prawns and addictive Coco Loco Hoppin’ Jons (jalapeño chillies stuffed with feta).
Various selections such as Chicken and Chorizo Jambalaya and Jamaican Jerk Chicken brim with authentic flavours and vegetarians can try Bob’s Blue cheese burger (vegetarian burger topped with avocado and blue cheese sauce), stuffed Cuban flatbread, roast vegetable pasta salad and curried Trinidad roti.
