Munch on Street Food

If you're a lover of street food, don't miss out on The Street Food Festival happening in the Mother City and, for the very first time, in Joburg.

Attracting some of SA's best street food vendors, serving up food that will have you salivating on arrival, you'll probably end up trying a selection of goodies - it's that hard to make up your mind.

So, here's what to expect: 

Cow cheeks, mielies, samoosas, shisa nyama, bunny chows, gatsbys, rotis and vetkoek are just some of the foods that will be ready and waiting to feed hungry visitors.

But that's not all, there will be the opportunity to try new foods, rediscover classic dishes, learn styling tips from Eat Out and TASTE Editor Abigail Donnelly, and much more.


'By showcasing our South African street food culture, we hope to inspire and empower people to pursue their love for food as a career,' explained Hannerie Visser, Street Food Festival Director. Finally, the day rounds off with a dinner specifically designed to celebrate our delicious African cuisine. The dinner will be prepared by Matthew Freemantle and Andrew Kai from Max Bagels in collaboration with local African immigrant cooks - yum. At the dinner you can look forward to enjoying: Nigerian Bitter Leaf Soup, Malawian Grilled Talapia with Nsima (pap), Zimbabwean Mopani worms, Somali style Kid meat stew, Ghanaian Plantain milkshakes
