Lately, a lot of people are making their way to the V&A Waterfront to shop, lay some flowers on the Mandela statue or make a trip to Robben Island…..
After joining everyone one that was laying flowers and taking pictures, I went to the food market. I’m embarrassed to say it was my first time going to the market, but then again there’s a first time for everything. I found some interesting items from different traders. There’s an eclectic mix of cuisines offered under one roof e.g. from Italian, Cape Malay, Mexican, Chinese etc. It’s an interesting culinary tour. Plus there’s a wide variety of items on offer, think including oysters, fresh vegetables, sea food, pan cakes, desserts etc.
I tried a few items from few traders:
First on my list was the guys juicing it up at the Dr Juice stall, they make what they do seem fun and the juices aren’t bad to taste. I bought some pies from the Gourmet Pantry, had a waffle and an interesting chat with the guys at the Belgian Waffle and Crepes stall. I loved the biltong at the Stokkies draai biltong stall. I didn’t get to try out everything but I’m planning on making another trip very soon.
Have you been to the market? How do you find it?
