As gourmet as it gets in Khayelitsha with the lovely Abigail Mbalo, a self-taught cook and former contestant on SA's MasterChef TV show, in charge. Expect African food with a twist: delicious wedges of pap (maize porridge) mixed with butternut squash and nutmeg, a rich lamb curry and a red velvet cake made with beetroot.
The white-washed courtyard setting is delightful, with one wall lined with old bathtubs turned into planters for vegetables and herbs used in the cooking. Abigail also has a food truck out of which she can create a five-course feast if you have a group of at least 10 people. You can bring your own alcohol.
