Vegan in Cape Town

Explore the plant-based options this beautiful city has to offer

Situated on the southeast coast of South Africa, Cape Town – sometimes known as The Mother City – is famous for its adorable penguins, turbulent history and scenic hiking routes. The city is buzzing with life and you only need to spend 24 hours in the centre to realise that the locals care a great deal about sustainability. As the cape suffers from extreme heat, it’s prone to wildfires and drought – meaning everyone is extra careful to save water and do their bit to help. With a population of just under 4 million, it unsurprising that the vegan scene in the Rainbow Nation is growing, and more people are moving towards an ethical way of living. In fact, The Vegan SA Directory ( revels that Cape Town is home to more than 60 vegan and vegetarianfriendly restaurants. Although there is no specific data describing the rise of the vegan lifestyle in South Africa, Research Agency Mintel ( states that the country saw four per cent of global vegan product launches during 2016 – putting it in the top 10 counties, ahead of Italy and Spain.

About PlantBased

Summer is in full swing, which means it’s time to take advantage of the fresh fruit and veg which fills our supermarket shelves – and if we’re lucky – our gardens, too. This month, we’ve included a wide range of dishes to help put your produce to good use, by including recipes for fresh salads (p24), delicious fruit tarts (p41) and authentic Asian dishes (p71). As August gifts us with long, warm evenings, it’s the perfect time to throw a garden party – but why not add a fun, Mexican twist? On page 28, we share our tips on how to throw a successful fiesta, followed by five recipes that will leave your guests wanting more. However nice the summer sun is, it can be easy to forget how important it is to protect our skin. Turn to page 76 to find Dr Diccardo Di Cuffa’s advice on how to stay safe in the sun. Later in the mag, we head to Cape Town to explore the plant-based options the city has to offer, while recommending a host of restaurants you must try when visiting the cape. We also share a veganised recipe of the Bobotie – a classic South African dish, originally made with meat – let us know what you think of it. Enjoy the issue.
