South Africa’s food truck capital, Cape Town, joined the global trend for mobile dining a few years ago.
There are now over 30 food trucks in the Mother City, with new ones popping up each year – adding to Cape Town’s already excellent and diverse food scene. Some of the best food trucks in Cape Town are only found at events such as festivals, but many operate every week, offering their wares from weekly markets such as the ever-popular Neighbourgoods, which takes place each Saturday in Woodstock.
The most scenic food truck spot in the city, however, is at Oudekraal – a roadside viewing point on the route between Camps Bay and Hout Bay where trucks park off on Wednesdays and Saturdays. On one side is the glittering Atlantic Ocean, and on the other, the dramatic Twelve Apostles mountains – it’s hard to beat that food truck view.
