Cape Town

broken image

In boujee cities like Cape Town, obviously my favorite thing to do is go to brunch. There are plenty of more comprehensive guides like Matt's, talking about the amazing hiking trails and best places for sunrise/sunset.

I love the drive along Chapman's Peak ( quite a short drive, but the view is unbeatable!) and get to Cape Point (each person is $20 entry ticket). If you get to Cape Point, the restaurant there Two Oceans is very very good. It might look quite touristy, but the seafood is very yummy.

These are just absolute must go places for food (but after you get your butt out of bed for a sunrise Lion's Head climb):

At the instagrammable Guilio's with hearty breakfast, get the Nona's sandwich. Jason's is the the best on Saturday mornings-- the one Bree is original but get there early to grab a seat. V&A Food Market is touristy but has some really good take-home's from ostrich biltong to chili chocolate. The best biltong is from the Butcher Man in Green Point. The pumpkin pancakes at the Schekter's Raw are the least healthy on the menu but to die for. Hope over to Woodstock for the quaint and homey lunch at Kitchen.

If you're going to Bo Kaap (great instagramming as well), you can also go to Harvest for delicious healthy food.

- Babel, just go google about this place. Insanely beautiful, and the restaurant there is just delicious, all organic, farm-to-table type

- Boschendal, one of the oldest winery, you have to go. So beautiful, wine tasting, buy some ham, eat their burger, cheese, and just relax

- Warwick

- Groot Constantia, famous, touristy, a lot of Chinese go, in many tour books, but nothing impressive compared to the other wineries we went

Other things to do: Yoga Life has maybe the most high quality teachers on the continent. But don't forget about paragliding off Lion's Head or Signal Hill!
