1 min read

Are you looking for an unforgettable dining experience in Cape Town? Look no further than Edge Africa, a Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel pop-up restaurant. Chef Vusi Ndlovu showcases his EDGE culinary concept that explores Africa’s food heritage creatively and respectfully.

The Oasis Bistro space, where the restaurant is located, has lovely indoor and outdoor decor. The ambiance is warm and welcoming, with an elegant touch.

The Food

The real star of the show is the food. Chef Vusi uses under-explored indigenous ingredients, progressive techniques, and an experimental approach to create dishes that evoke a snapshot of Africa on each plate. From the steamed bun served with beef essence to the tempting charred broccoli dish with groundnut sauce and miso made from bambara nuts, the food is an adventure for your palate.

The Wine List and Cocktails

The wine list is also impressive, featuring small artisans and producers and leaning towards minimal intervention and natural labels from boutique producers. The restaurant also features a custom cocktail menu from the Edge team featuring African spirits, botanicals, and ingredients.

The Service

The service is impeccable, informative, and warm, with knowledgeable and helpful staff. However, some reviewers have pointed out that the service could be improved.

Overall, Edge Africa is an exciting and adventurous culinary experience in Cape Town. Take the chance to explore African flavors creatively and respectfully.
