10 Food Photos That Prove Cape Town is the Culinary Capital of South Africa

Our monthly selection of Instagram images that capture some delicious and decadent Mother City dishes

Last Update: 09 November, 2016

There is no sincerer love than the love of food. - George Bernard Shaw.

Who could argue with that quote from the famous Irish playwright? We certainly can’t dispute it!  And fortunately, we are kind of spoilt for choice in the Mother City when it comes to indulging in our great love of grub. 

Cape Town’s culinary scene is bursting at the seams with gourmet creations and epicurean delights. In short, our seaside metropolis is a playground for foodies: whether you’re a hardcore critic or someone who just appreciates a tasty treat, there is bound to be something on offer that will satiate your appetite and inspire a ‘foodgasm’. 

Need visual proof? Well, we excavate our Instagram page every month to put together an overview of 10 of the best food images as evidence. From hunger-inducing shots of street food to pictures of plates that could double up as works of art, our monthly selection will prove that the Mother City is the foodie capital of South Africa.
