South Africa’s inventive cuisine is inspired by mix of cultures and a wealth of fertile land. The range of gastronomic restaurants and the choice of international menu brings diversity to the dining experience.
Most of the restaurants in the wine regions of South Africa are nestled in the picturesque vineyards with a perfect setting. These high-end restaurants provide exquisite gourmet experiences and organize wine and food tastings.
Many restaurants offer international menus and the indigenous dishes available are biltong (dried, salted meat), bobotie (a much-improved version of Shepherd’s pie) and boerewors (hand-made farm sausages, grilled on an open flame). And those looking for culinary challenge can sample crocodile sirloins, fried caterpillars and sheep heads.
South African wines both red and white are acclaimed internationally. Apart from the International grape varieties, Pinotage is the local grape variety. The most planted grape variety is Chenin Blanc while Pinot Gris is also found in abundance. The wines are paired well with variety of cuisine available across South Africa.
