Top 4 places to eat in Cape Town

Moving or visiting a new city is stressful enough, imagine getting there not having a clue of where or what to eat? Here are the four places that we recommend that you can go and grab a bite or two.

Lets start with the East city, it used to be an industrial-commercial area on the outskirts of the business district in Cape Town. However, East city has transformed into a creative hub that has galleries, aesthetic fulfilling cafés and bars.

Truth Coffee

Truth is one of the first micro coffee roasters in Cape Town, coffee is the center of their soul. Fear not if you are not into coffee, you can drink beer or tea or the most amazing apple juice in Cape Town! The main thing is that this spot is not to be missed.

Imagine for a second...a steampunk inspired aesthetic, metal piping and vintage looking machinery that could convince you that something great is being invented, in this case its coffee, which we can all agree is one of the best inventions of all time.

They pride themselves on constantly challenging the status quo when it comes to local coffee shops, where they ensure to always make coffee with excellence and to offer the best environment.

At Downtown Ramen it feels like you have entered an uncluttered Zen-like space! The ramen with the pork belly is out of this world and the ramen bowls are enough to fill you for the day.
