I Love Food – Savoy Cabbage, Cape Town


Although I was only in Cape Town about a month ago, I somehow managed to go away another 2 or 3 times since then but my memories of this wonderful trip to South Africa are still very vivid. I did promise I would go more in depth about some of the places I visited so here goes nothing…
Caroline Bagley first opened Savoy Cabbage in 1998, and the place immediately received praise from the press and from its customers. I can see why – the meal we had there was stunning. The chef, Peter Pankhurst cooks what could only be described as a South African meets European menu, liberally using Wildebeest, Springbok and other local meats. 
Our waitress made the experience even more special as she looked after us as if we were family. If you go to Savoy Cabbage, make sure you donate to Street Smart by adding a donation to your bill at the end of your meal. It is an association helping street children that also exists in the UK, US and Australia. There are many little kids in dire need of some help there, so this is a truly great initiative. You can read more about the charities supported by Savoy Cabbage here.
