eat and drink from shopping to city
Feeling a bit peckish? Then you’ve come to the right place! Cape Town is known the world over for its glorious cuisine, with local favourites vying for attention amidst the many fine dining venues dotted throughout the city. Whether you’re looking for something cheap and cheerful, or an experience that’s a little more upmarket, you’ll find it tucked away in burger bars and beerhouses like Hudson’s or &Union, or in gourmet restaurants like The Test Kitchen, or Le Quartier Franҫais. You’ll also find it in Blue Route Mall, served up in coffee shops like Tribakery and Mugg & Bean, restaurants like Primi Caffé and Silver Mountain Spur, and in a range of fast casual eateries in the newly revamped food court. Just going to prove that whatever your palate craves, Cape Town, and Blue Route Mall will be able to satisfy it, and then some.
No mention of Cape Town would be complete without a nod to the winelands – jewels of land and of vine famous the world over for their depth of flavour and superior quality. Whether crisp white or rich red, the wine routes of Paarl, Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Constantia are home to both in an array of varietals, and are a must for any wine lover wanting to drink in the fruits of Cape Town’s labours. Start your journey through wine country from inside Blue Route Mall itself, with panoramic views of the Constantiaberg mountains, clearly visible from the ceiling-high windows of the food court, showcasing the surrounding landscape to stunning effect. The winelands of Constantia lie just below, nestled at the foot of the mountains – a fitting start to a journey worth savouring.
