South Africa’s culinary capital will play host to a celebration of street food prepared by some of the country’s best chefs and food makers this September. We’re talking the type of food you’ll need both hands to eat: vinegary fish and slapchips, gatsbys stuffed to capacity and the best braai, straight off the fire.
This year’s Street Food Festival is dishing up a new flavour. Not only will it launch its first ever night market, but its Business of Food themed conference, Visa Food Studio, will bring together top chefs and speakers in a day of interactive tastings, workshops and demonstrations.
The fourth edition of the popular festival will kick off in Cape Town at the Side Street Studios in Woodstock on Saturday 2 September with the launch of the night market, and continue on Sunday 3 September with a full day of street food, live DJ’s and free talks.

Some additional Mother City highlights include listening to crate talks by the sausage master Josh de Kock and cake designer extraordinaire Nikki Albertyn, a live totebag screen printing bar, a long table session with chef PJ Vadas of the Hoghouse at Spier wine farm, a live DJ set by Dope Saint Jude and testing your knowledge of chili at the Hot Sauce Library.
And then there’s the food: deep fried Mac and Cheese balls, authentic Ethiopian coffee, pap and tripe, steamed bread and trotters, bunny chow, and – this is Cape Town after all – the best samosas.
