Disrupting the weekend at the Neighbourgoods Market
The foodie frenzy surrounding this Saturday street-food extravaganza can only be described as one-of-a-kind. We had seen food festivals, farmer’s markets and neighborhood fests all over the world, but every Saturday the Old Biscuit Mill in Cape town becomes a Mecca for hand-held vittles.
We arrived around 13:00, late by expert standards, the crowds had already arrived and we were immediately enveloped in a swarm of hip and hungry market-goers perusing the shops and venues at the Old biscuit mill or slithering through the aisles of the tents.
The Old Biscuit Mill has plenty of pricey fashion and interior design shops as well as a few graphic design studios and an escape game (definitely worth it if you’ve never done one). But we were here for the food. Stall after stall offers everything from artisan coffee to local oysters, or from experimental sushi to breakfast burittos and hot waffles.
We sampled a few items for our readers… ok, so we sampled them cause they looked so good.
The Kitchen – The home of the famous Love Sandwich
Holy Mountain Tacos – Delectable Tacos creations for every taste and palate
Mother Shucker Oysters – Oysters extraordinaire, served with champagne
Kitchen Cowboys – Homemade food by famous local chef Pete Goffe-Wood
The Verdict: The restaurant scene in any city would benefit from a Neighbourgoods Market of its own. Go early and come with an appetite!
