Around Cape Town

Hi everyone! How’s your week going?
Today I show you one of the places we visited this past weekend: an organic food market called the Oranjezicht Market.

This impressive farmers’ market operates every Saturday, near the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, and has beautiful sea views up the coast to Blouberg.

We went to the Waterfront to try Tasha’s restaurant, a new Spanish Turkish restaurant that serves delicious food in a very pleasant bright space.

We had polenta risoto (amazing), traditional South African breakfast, and a smoothie with green vegetables.

If you go to the Waterfront, we recommend you stop at Tasha’s for a coffee or lunch. Nice decoration and good quality food at affordable prices.

 

 

Visiting Jordan Wine Estate Stellenbosch

Hi guys! How’s it being ‘back at school’? A few weeks ago I arrived in South Africa and it seems like yesterday, time is flying!

We’re exploring new places around Cape Town, and on one of our trips out, we visited Stellenbosch and the JORDAN winery.

A beautiful place where you can stay in a cozy hotel and enjoy breathtaking views across the valley. 

JORDAN-HOTEL

The winery organizes visits of its cellars and you can do a tastings for a reasonable price, which is waived if you purchase bottles at the shop.

We suggest that visit during the morning, from Cape Town it takes approximately 40 minutes depending on traffic, and do a drive around the countryside, do a wine tasting and visit the vineyards. Afterwards, have lunch in one of the restaurants at the winery. Here are our recommendations:

We tried The Bakery restaurant which is less formal and has a terrace with impressive views over the lake. The food was very good and reasonably priced.

The look I chose for the day was a black legging with black v-neck shirt. Sunglass by NorthWeek. Shoes by Polo Ralph Lauren in beige and black. Bag in beige by The Lunch Bag.

If you visit South Africa definitely try to visit this winery, one of our top recommendations for activities around Cape Town.

Have a great week.
